The honeypot is my curated luscious-living list.

Like the honeypot on my table overflowing with golden goodness, this honeypot is brimming with the sweet stuff: arresting ideas, great reads, lip-smacking recipes and oh-so-delightful finds that I’ve discovered and can’t help but share.

As the celebrated illustrator and writer Maira Kalman wrote (she is one of my favorites), my luscious-living list only includes items that “make me gasp with delight.”

Here are a few fabulous finds that have me gasping:
