The Thursday Thirteen – April 10, 2014

I’m envisioning everything in orange this week; it must have something to do with Easter being so near. It seems that everywhere I look I’m seeing carrots, which are making me think about how I can incorporate them into my spring recipes. Orange has always been one of my top favorite colors, and the things shown below are just part of the reason why.


I’m crazy about this Sunset Splash Glassware from Sundance Catalog.
