I visited a local park this afternoon to prepare for an upcoming photo shoot, in the distance beyond the beautiful trees, swings, and picnic tables I saw something colorful and shiny peeking out, and then there was this, a big magical circle created by Niki de Saint Phalle, wow, it is gorgeous to see in person.
am + pm
Woke up this morning with sewing on my mind. I officially learned to sew really small shorts and tight sweatpants in seventh grade and just wasn't into it then. Now I have ideas I want to try out, so it was just me, Ladybug, and my mom's Singer 5430 wrestling with thread, bobbins, pins, scissors and fabric. I certainly did feel smart when I used the manual to fix things that were going wrong. Happy Thursday...only 3 more days 'til the Oscars!!
In anticipation of a baby shower I am attending this weekend I made a sweet sack to wrap my gift. I got to create the invites awhile back, too, and what better way to welcome a sweet baby girl than with sugar and spice...
A storm is arriving just in time for the long weekend, off to bundle up and listen to the rain.
*What is a Halloween picture doing here in February? My sixth picture from my sixth file (a game of tag from estasketch & peachtree), it's me and Hermie at the pumpkin patch this year. Hee hee, look at that little sailor. *
**added note: I was looking at the blog with my mom and she was wondering when Hermie dressed up as a nurse.

As you can see we got some rain in Southern California this weekend, everything sparkles and looks brighter. I brought home some pods bursting with red berries and ones that look like they're holding a tiny brain inside. I picked up a new item to photograph, I found it at an antique show my mom and her friends participated in, looking forward to working on new projects. Case and I saw Coraline and Waltz with Bashir, both were excellent. Coraline is visually amazing, especially the miniature knitter who knitted the tiniest sweaters and gloves out of needles and thread for the character to wear (can you believe that?!).
cupcakes on a friday
I had too many carrots in the fridge that just weren't getting eaten so I thought I'd make something sweet from them as they would be sure to get eaten then, which led me to this carrot cupcake recipe. I frosted them before bed last night and packaged some to give away with little curly carrot adornments.
eyes on the road
spt...on my way to the post office to ship a print and a few other errands, this picture seems to be from a completely different day, hours later now, the sky is gray and rain has arrived. Looks like a nice evening to make pizza, cupcakes and read. I finished Water for Elephants and am starting Watchmen, curious to see how I like it, not a book I would've picked up on my own, Case loved it, so here goes.
three days 1.31 to 2.2
The past few days just zoomed right on by with reading, walks, seafood, sunshine and cooking. It was such a lovely "springy" sort of weekend I woke up today thinking how nice a jog along the beach would be, so I did. The plan was to take some coastal people shots, too, that didn't happen, need to go with a better plan, hydrate, move around, etc.
Please stop by The Peach Tree, (one of my favorite blogs) I feel so lucky to be the featured artist of the week! *thank you*
