diy sundae bar for movie night party with tillamook ice cream. / sfgirlbybay

my friends and i have a sunday night ritual of getting together for a ‘family potluck’. it’s a special tradition with friends, just relaxing and winding the weekend down before the work week starts — it’s always something to look forward to, rather than dreading the end of the weekend. so when told me about their new ice cream packaging, i thought what a fun way to step up our usual get-togethers and host a sunday night sundae-making movie night. flavors are so nostalgic tasting for me — the tastes like when we used to churn ice cream and fresh fruit at home when i was a kid, and the flavor is like biting into your childhood birthday parties — it tastes just like a scoop of vanilla on top of white birthday cake with sprinkles. i’m telling you, i felt like i was five all over again.

to prepare for our sundae-making movie night, i hung a white sheet on the wall, found a great old black & white flick to project, and cozied up the living room with plenty of cushions and blankets. then i set about creating the ultimate sundae bar with a few of my favorite , like , (my go-to flavor), and and of course, for the purists at heart. i gathered wafer cookies, cones, sprinkles, hot fudge, salted caramel, and chocolate sauce and natural whipped cream, nuts and cherries to top off all that delicious ice cream. it couldn’t have turned out any more fun and although we barely watched the flick, we definitely had a memorable evening that made us feel like kids again. for your own movie night with friends, check out tillamook ice cream near you.

ran this beautiful home tour in Netanya, Israel, which is actually two unique asymmetric units, that just happen to look like a single family home from the outside. the is most inspiring, but i was quite taken with this ‘great room’ — an open kitchen, dining and living space with those of so enviable floor to ceiling black industrial windows. i want these so badly at the rear of my house, looking out to my garden, alas it’s a question of budget at this point in time — but never say never! seeing how beautiful this garden view is through those pretty picture windows makes me want to save my pennies and make it happen. for the full home tour, visit

austrailan country home of alison fraser. / sfgirlbybay

is what happens when talented ceramicist and her husband andrew move from sydney out to the australian countryside — magic! they’ve got the exposed ceilings and rafters that i dream about going on, creating such an open, airy and yet still cozy space. all that natural light flooding in through the beautiful floor to ceiling windows help make it bright, warm and inviting, as well. i love the way they’ve decorated it with loads of vintage collectibles, like the portrait painting and a mix of schoolhouse and around a nice, big communal dining table. and the whitewashed floors give the space a rustic, but still refined look. i love it all — including their adorable fluffy pup! for the full tour visit and for more of artist alison fraser’s ceramics visit .
