Blurry eyed from editing photos all day for #californiacookingandsouthernstyle This one’s of a fun evening we had to benefit @stmarksinthevalley a few years ago – called it Under a Summer Moon as we planned it for the full moon, which came out right on cue! .

New scarf tie! Im always looking for a new way to tie a scarf because I wear them so much. Just stumbled onto this one today: fold horizontally into long, thin rectangle. Loop over once, then loop over again with the same end, so you have two loops with thesame end going in the same direction (not a square knot). Then it sort of slides into this bu itself, but it is also cute tied this way at side of your neck so the ends butterfly out. You’re welcome. ☺️

A rattlesnake skin for every chair. Love #texas. Here for a few days visiting old friends and for the best quail hunting this side of the Mississippi.
A quickie watercolor sketch and fond memory of last week’s trip to Sedona and @mii_amo_spa with @indagaretravel and @elizabethlesser This was done on my last day hike up to #kachinawoman and the #warrior (right). An even quickier one I did to test colors and composition is at swipe left. Sometimes I like those better. More spontaneous and fresh. .

Best line ever. Probably not effective, but inventive, yes. By #ZacharyKanin for @newyorkermag
Was so taken by the divine and dainty(ish) bling worn by the even more divine and stylish @arossgirl , who could make bailing twine and barbwire look chic. Gorgeous scarabs, moonstones and opals by @darlenedesedle and other juicy grms from @pippasmalljewellery recently shot to fame in the favor of Meghan Markle Winsdor, Duchess of Sussex.
Am working away on next book #californiacookingandsouthernstyle and when my concentration wanes, I paint. This was from a photo I took a few years ago when His Grace and I visited this lovely vineyard and farm in Tuscany, whose proprietor was also winemaker and chef. I am missing her name alas, and the estate’s. If anyone recognizes this please lmk! 12 x 16, oil on canvas board. .

So beautiful it’s almost corny. (Keep swiping ☺️) The red rocks of #sedona as seen from #miiamo. Soaking in the wisdom of author and teacher @elizabethlesser and for a few days of healing and rest and friendship. .
