weekend greetings, friends. i’m feeling a little off today since the santa ana winds are blowing (if you know, you know). they always mess with my head — both literally and figuratively, so apologies for any strangeness. i freakin’ hate them because when they blow, murder rates rise, people are generally cranky and weirdness abounds. it might be time to brew a cup of coffee to clear my head. this beautiful brewer above has my attention — i do love a great-looking espresso maker, and this one is setting the tone for this week’s friday finds. here’s to a peaceful and calmer weekend, everyone. x, v.
