A little of this, a little of that, Julia Berolzheimer x Pottery Barn collection debut, Mother’s Day thoughts and more…Weekend Meanderings.
Good Morning friends, it is a beautiful sunny day and I am off to an antique fair, buggy festival and to spend time with my niece and nephew. This morning I am joining my friends Juliet and Kim for Weekend Meanderings so when you finish here pop over and see what they are up too!
Julia Berolzheimer x Pottery Barn
Pottery Barn is collaborating with blogger Julia Berolzheimer on a collection featuring home decor, bedding, tabletop and garden. If are are not familiar with Julia she is the blogger previously known as Gal Meets Glam. After a rebrand to the blog she is still as popular as ever and boasts over 1 million followers on Instagram. Julia lives in Charleston, SC with her husband and two little girls and posts her fashion and lifestyle daily. She has had several collaborations with major brands and Pottery Barn is the latest.
Each piece is thoughtfully designed, beautiful and fits Julia’s esthetic perfectly. The collection is elegant, timeless and would look beautiful in any home or garden.
The collection includes the Clementine Reversible Quilt & Shams and Marigold Reversible Duvet & Shams, named after Julia’s daughters.

Today is Derby day, will you be watching or attending a Kentucky Derby Party? What can I say, I am here for the Oaks Lily(not the Julep) and the pimento cheese. If you need a few Derby recipes for your gathering look no further than, “Famous Kentucky Recipes to Inspire Your Best Derby Day Spread .”
I know that many people love Mint Juleps but I have never acquired a taste for them. I do however love an Oaks Lily, it is the official drink of The Kentucky Oaks. Which by the way, is the sister race of the Kentucky Derby, held yesterday.
6 tablespoons cranberry juice
3 tablespoons Vodka
2 tablespoons lime juice
slash of Triple Sec
Fill cocktail shaker with all ingredients, shake well, strain cocktail into glass filled with ice. Add lime slice or mint for garnish.
Mother’s Day, a day set aside to celebrate mothers and all that they do, which is A LOT! Mother’s are teachers, caregivers, housekeepers, cooks, bakers, taxi driver, doctors, helpers, a shoulder to cry on, the best hug givers, and so much more. My mother has been all of those things and my friend, confidant, cheerleader, interior decorator, employer, she has loved me at my best and my worst and she is exactly what I want to be when I “grow up.”
Let’s make this day special for all of the mom’s in our lives. Make them breakfast in bed or prepare a family brunch complete with mimosas, coffeecake, hash-brown casserole and scrambled eggs. Whatever you do today for your mom, make sure that you spoil her rotten with sweet treats, cards, gifts, flowers and love.
If you can’t be with your mom today maybe make something she enjoyed or do something she loved and cherish the memories of the special times you shared with her.
I won’t be with my mom this year, but my two sister’s will spoil her tomorrow and I will the next time she visits.
You can learn about the history of Mother’s Day here.
