Homemade Ravioli with Spinach & Homemade Goat's Milk Ricotta

 trader joe's sells goat's milk, so i bought it and turned it into ricotta.
i don't think i'll ever get over how easy it is to make that cheese. or how delicious.
then i had all this ricotta, and i didn't know what to do with it.
so i decided to fold it into some ravioli.
the thyme worked beautifully with the lemon that's used to make the cheese,
and we topped the cooked ravioli with a basic homemade tomato sauce.
cosi buona!

Whale Cards

recently while cleaning out my desk, i found a box of 
it reminded me that the press used to be one of my favorites, 
and that i've always especially adored their boxset of 6 whales.
 i wish they'd do a limited run of poster sized prints for framing.

Red, Yellow, Green

$20 haul of mismatched dinerware from the sale room at fishs eddy.
i do love our white plates, but sometimes you just need a pop of color.

Camp Taylor / Delware Water Gap: NJ & PA

two weekends ago we went camping in the delaware water gap,
at a little, dog-friendly campsite by the name of camp taylor.
we pitched our tents, made hobo pies, slept through a rainy night,
and woke up, packed some peanut butter and banana sandwiches 
and went on a nice little 4 mile hike up mt. minsi.


 amazing old rca victor found by new favorite site, bureau of trade.
if it wasn't all static, i'd add it to my collection.

Dog Walking

can it be that only two weekends ago it was this bright and sunny in brooklyn?
it feels like it has been raining forever.

May Day Picnic

loving this little "inspiration" spread on ikea's livet hemma blog.
why did they discontinue that grey zig zag blanket?
or that car?
