Scenes from Life

Lovely colorful bundles of felt. Little do they know they're about to be cut up into many tiny pieces. [Insert maniacal laugh here]

I love polka dots.

Rereading Cannery Row by John Steinbeck for the first time since high school in my pjs. I love the illustrated cover. I've now moved on to St. Lucy's Home for Girls Raised by Wolves by Karen Russell, which is excellent so far.

This ladybug lives in my window. We met at a craft fair in Baltimore about 10 years ago, and she's been with me ever since.

We've been eating way too much pizza lately. This one was made by the lovely people at the Lost Dog Cafe and was delicious.

My boyfriend and I were walking on a nearby trail and came across a spider weaving a huge web. It might be hard to see in this photo, but trust me, it was spectacular and scary.

What have you guys been up to lately?


  1. Polka dots and Steinbeck? You had me at hello!!

    I love a lot of the books That were required reading in high school. I have been wanting to read Farenheit 451 again. Brave New World and 1984 were my favs!

  2. Ooooh, I love that spider web. It reminds me of one we saw in Australia (which the biggest spider EVER in it)!


  3. great photos! i love the polka dots... and that pizza looks sooo good.


  4. We've been doing a lot of frozen pizza lately, and yours looks way better.

  5. Great pictures. Love the colors! The poor felt! I hope it's not planning it's escape.
