awhile back  i came across this swap celebrating handmade and was connected with Amy Quarry, another BC mama who uses soft recycled sweaters in her projects. With this adorable owl she also sent an upcycled denim apron, a sweet hand stitched toadstool embroidery hoop and other gifts which have all found their home before the “photo shoot”. Thank you Amy – we love them!

Jimin and i have been trading some as well. i am so in love with her Smallville designs. i wish i had a better photo of these awesome softest wool pants;

shadows by you.

and the couch… not sure if it was traded or bought from friends who miscalculated their space but lucky for us it appeared one day. it’s the kind of couch to actually sit on rather than slump into. i like that a lot.  it’s also a hide-a-bed and little A likes that a lot. George? he just likes everything a lot including dressing up;

(my mom played Anne Murray 8 tracks in the station wagon)

finally! he wants to ride. starting now with some practice up and down the alley and then soon, with some real good helmet persuasions…i’m imaging some good rides for us this summer. daydreaming.

like a bike by you.

these boys together nearly melted me. my little one has only ever connected so easily with one other. it’s so sad that they will be moving too soon.

in the alley alley ohalley boys

my mind is spinning circles with day dreams. the little one is spinning circles really truly. i thought to unwind with him in a living room dance session but now my daydreams are just muddled by the repetition of ‘sally go round the sun’ (i’m grateful it’s not Raffi – i’ve so been there done that).


so i dreamed of Italy but could only manage Bellingham at the last minute and round trip in 12 hours. it was a good day for a drive – over the bridge, through the tunnel and across the border.

good day for a drive by you.

i think i’m going to make like doudou here and flop my weight down. i wonder what he’s dreaming about.
