Friday Favorites from Ben Pentreath, Calling it Home, Cupcakes and Cashmere and More

Good morning and happy Friday to you! I hope that your week was wonderful.  Mine has been both busy and relaxing; running around and working all day then relaxing at night with my pups on the porch reading and watching the sun set. I am looking forward to more of that this weekend.

I love to travel even if it is only vicariously through the photos and adventures of other bloggers. This week Ben Pentreath shared his stunning photos of Greece. I have not yet had the pleasure of visiting there but Ben's photos have me itching to visit not only bustling Athens but the quiet out of the way islands. 

Image Calling it Home

Although Fall is fast approaching this fabulous house designed by Alessandra Branca featured this week on Calling it Home will allow you to enjoy a little more of the beach and the summer sun. 

Cupcakes and Cashmere

The sweltering heat this week calls for a nice refreshing drink to celebrate the weekend. Cupcakes and Cashmere featured the famous Ivy Gimlet, it looks and sounds refreshing don't you think?

Tartine and Apron Strings

I cannot resist a quick bread and this Raspberry Apple Slice from Tartine and Apron Strings looks scrumptious! The combination of summer berries and the apples and spices of Fall make it the perfect bread for the transitional season.

Have you seen the movie The Trip To Italy? I watched it last night and loved it! 

What have you been up to this week? Have you read anything good, seen any good movies, or made something delicious? If so, please share.

Enjoy your weekend!
