{happy weekend + bar carts}

{Jacob Hertzell, stylist; via emmas designblogg}

Looking forward to a little down time this weekend, especially time outdoors on our recently refurnished patio . . .

Not certain if anyone still uses bar carts, but sitting and dreaming en plein air for a few moments somehow made me think a moveable place for water and lemons and fizzy drinks and wine would work out beautifully . . .

I adore the Lovejoy bottles. The Hazelnut vodka is flavored with real fresh-roasted Oregon hazelnuts.

Thanks, Mary, and completely agree--the carts are not just great for bar supplies--also have one in the study next to the desk, where it holds the printer and various office supplies. And thanks for the great write-up on Kirtsy!

Megan, aren't the labels lovely? And fresh-roasted hazelnuts sound delicious! Thanks for the mention on your blog :)

The bottom decanter is so "glamorous" & I love bar carts, especially when they're used for other things like an occasional table or side table!

The Lovejoy vodka labels are beyond cool. Also, always count on Marc Jacobs to design something lust-worthy. My father had made a service-cart when I was a kid(we still have it somewhere), these make me want to make a more glamorous version of my own, for side-table purposes.

Bar carts are the perfect union of form and function. There is always one running around the manse. But a butler's tray! Tremendous. And so welcoming by the front door.
