Black Olive Jam

Okay - I just recently fell back in love with this stuff!! It is like a little piece of heaven for your mouth!!! Andres Black Olive Jam..... oh my. While I was visiting with my Aunt in the Central Coast last month we came across this little jar of heaven again. I bought one months ago on my last visit. It is amazing - we like to pile it on whipped cream cheese and then spread it on a sliced baguette. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!!! We picked it up at Muzio's Grocery in San Luis Obispo (yummy sandwiches and the best cheese ever) but check out their site and see where you can get it. Just like heaven!

Summer Camping and picnics

Well, it is almost that time of year again- Summer! It's time to get outside and camp, picnic, hike or whatever you are into.

We went camping this weekend, and realized that when we do we bring so many things with us that are packaged and are one time use items. In an effort to make our summer trips less taxing on the environment we decided to make some changes for the better. We will now have a large designated trash can in the center of camp for recycling bottles and cans- so many get tossed in with the regular trash! We also will be using compostable and biodegradable plates and utensils- I love the BAMBU line - cute and compostable! So do yourself and the environment a favor this summer when you camp or even picnic remember to recycle and to use products that have a low impact on the environment!

Bambu can be found at Branch online.

Happy Camping!

Ditch those plastic water bottles

Ditch your plastic water bottle and keep a carafe with fresh filtered water at your desk, bedside, kitchen table or any where you are.  It is a great way to get all of that water that your body needs! And who really wants to look at those ugly bottles everywhere?  Not me!  
There are so many options out there to make a simple change today!  Check out the glass ware section on for some of our favorites.

My Sparrow inspired by Paris

On my recent trip to Paris I was once again inspired by the city!  I love to walk in the city- it always is a little different to me- different enough to make me want to return again and again.  I love to see the parks, the shops, the small courtyards of the apartment buildings, the boulangeries, and the markets- the markets make me want to move from sunny California to this enchanting place.  It is here that I see how we all should be living with fresh food on the table everyday or taking in the sun along the Seine, having long dinners with friends, great food and great wine.  I always return with a need to create and feeling overwhelmingly inspired to live a better- simpler life.  It is this inspiration that brought me to create My Sparrow- a place where we can bring the old and the new together and remember to enjoy each other and our lives as they are meant to be enjoyed!

Some of my favorite stops are:
Any boulangerie 
Blanc D'voire
