love this book: family interiors

i checked this out from the library but am so smitten i may have to buy.
the pages are thick matte paper, and the photographs show up beautifully.

the un-bouquet

we deflowered my mothers day bouquet to save the rose petals for dyeing playsilks.
we'll see how it goes...

knuckles might be r-rated

or at least pg-13

how i see without glasses

my (fairly) new camera has been misbehaving lately, and taking pictures like these. through frustrated by the faulty technology, i also find pleasantly myself attracted to certain blurry pictures. likely because their viewpoint is so oddly familiar. as a kid i didn't realize that trees had individual leaves-- i thought them a swath of green on a (blurry) stripe of brown. and now when i take out my contacts ("are you taking your eyes out?" the little one says), i look at faces and see dark orbs where eyes should be.

some coveted art supplies

there are very few art supplies i have a special allegiance to... these two in particular i love most everything about them. the pentel marker set has an awesome array of colors and a very handy (esp. with children) storage 'book' that is a very findable yellow. also, the utility sketchbook by the pentalic corporation, which sadly seems no longer to have this great yellow watercolor paper cover (replaced instead with a photograph of a manhole...ugh)... despite the latter's no-frills name, it is a supremely awesome sketchbook. it is perfect bound, the paper quality is incredible, with no bleed-through. the cover (at least the yellow one) is thick and withstands lots of beating, and the pages can be removed cleanly if need be. and it just *feels perfect*. as one website puts it: "looks and handles like a thick telephone book with a soft cover"

outdoor awesomeness

i've been looking at outdoor furniture forever, and haven't found much that i like.
alas, i stumbled upon this lovely composition, the treviso collection from design within reach. a mere 7k-ish, maybe someday in the far future... would have to co-opt the concrete slab deck too...
