My new art print, going for a swim, from Minted arrived while we were at the beach and as soon as I opened it up I knew the perfect spot for it. I started drinking gin + tonic with a lime while on vacation last week and I knew I wanted to create a little drink station at home. Summer drink + summer memories. A perfect combination for an empty little corner in our living room.
So far I prefer the Hendrick's over the Bombay Sapphire but have yet to try the Tanqueray. Looks like I've got a reason to pour a cocktail tonight! All in the name of research, of course. I squeeze half a lime in and it tastes just like a non-sweet limeade. Yum. I've been mixing with Schweppes but curious if you have any other tonic water you'd recommend trying out? I might drive over to Homegoods or World Market and see if I can find some fancy looking bottles. I'm a sucker for a good label.
Also, how pretty are those hand stamped cocktail napkins? I bought a set of four from my girl Emily last year. She is crazy talented and I am hoping she lists more for sale before Christmas. They'd make a great gift. She creates the most awesome hand stamped chinoiserie inspired goodies.
We spent the entire summer at the pool and I loved it. I grew up swimming and pictures of the water always intrigue me. I love this modern take on that. Y'all know I love photography as well and I just can't get enough of Minted's photography art prints. Check out a few more of my favorites below.
