225: me and mimi and the men

July 7, 2008 Good morning, loves! Back to the Boston Handmade Marketplace:   You know how I was looking forward to seeing Mimi's men!    And Mimi, of course.   Oh my god, they are so cool!  I have an unnatural love for these guys:   I am feeling , uh, a little unphotogenic lately, so pretend you don't notice the my dark circles and wacky hair. And giant fivehead. But do feel free to notice my cute headband.   The detail on the faces is incredible, as is the amount of personality they each have.   >sigh<       sepia! Arrrrrr:...

223:  picnic - pottery- progress

Yum. Saturday morning we...

Thanks for all the lemon-love! .......................................................  As you know, Saturday I went to Boston for the Craft  Magazine party.I got off the T at Porter Square and headed down Mass Ave to meet Karen at Simon's  Cafe. I was running a little late because there was construction in one of the tunnels, but I couldn't resist pulling out my camera to  capture this: This may come as a surprise,  since  you know that I am a procrastinator, but I am rarely late. I am usually early. I dislike being late. Of course, things happen. Sometimes I...

160: mary and the magic brain (and my weekend)

March 16, 2008 You guys are like, yawn, right? Well, I am sorry.   am going to try not to bore you. But  I love to show you my goodies. Not those goodies, you cheeky monkey. I will break up the endless photos of my estate sale finds with some actual , you know, writing- how about that? I had a lovely weekend. As you know, I shopped. I visited with a handful of good friends. Great friends, actually. Wonderful, vibrant women. I watched Marie Antoinette with my friend Sue last night. She and I have been friends for years, but fell out of touch over...

August 12, 2007 Stunning tile wall piece by Madelyn Macedo. She is amazing . Truly one of the most talented, wise, kind-hearted and radically generous people I know. I will be sharing the rest of my Maddy/Providence photos soon.
