this is a chair that i found at a garage sale this morning; along with a pair of Nick and Nora slippers and a coffee/spice grinder.

oh, the simplicities of life.


of course here an artsy picture that i don’t know what to do with.


this is a picture ellie took of me in spanish 2 class. i am wearing this old dress that i found in our sewing stuff. hmm. vintage.

here are three books that REALLY make me happy.




The Small Rain by Madeleine L’Engle

The Art of the Tart by Tamasin Day-Lewis

SOUP by William Sonoma

“We may live without poetry, music, and art;
We may live without conscience, and live without heart;
We may live without friends; we may live without books;
But civilized man cannot live without cooks.”

Owen Meredith
(Edward Robert Bulwer, Earl of Lytton)
