6/19/2010 - Why Hello There!

I found this beauty when I was looking at all the pretty hydrangeas in my parents yard today.  Were you caught in between the glass and screen of our slider last year?  You look surprisingly similar to that one...

6/14/2010 - I needs my caffiene!

I went outside tonight to take some pictures of some fiber and projects that were long overdue and I found this guy clinging onto this coke bottle for dear life.  I can't imagine being so close to a caffeinated beverage without actually being able to get some.  Poor guy!

One of my lovely new hand made dice bags.  I was going for a very earthy crunchy feel :-)

6/10/2010 - For the love of sailing

So, this past weekend we helped put the sailboat in the water.  It was kind of a rough day for it, with over an hour of thunderstorms that we had to wait out in between getting the boat in the water and raising the mast once we motored down to the dock near where it is moored.  Buuuut, she is now in the water and ready for all sorts of sailing adventures when we get to the Cape next.  We can't wait!

6/8/2010 - I just might have a future in pet portraiture

I feel like there should be a little gold letting in the bottom corner saying Olan Mills, lol.  I completely lucked out on this pic.  Molly was feeling nice and there was a lamp whose shade I could tilt to reflect light onto the couch so I wouldn't have to use my flash (flash = yuck).  I got a whole series of her and they basically all came out well.  Maybe she'll be America's Next Top Pet Model.... although I suspect she is technically plus sized (just like her mom :P).

6/7/2010 - The Hyper Rose Explodes!

Ok, so it didn't actually explode in the traditional sense.  It did explode with blooms though.  Here is a closeup of one.  The picture below shows how big it is after just two your of ridiculous neglect on our part.  Please note that this plant was only as big as a regular rose.  I might have been in a pit that was a foot across tops. I just love this rose bush because it blooms all summer and has really natural looking flowers.  They look like you could just see them on the beach.
