holly! - you are coming soon! i can't wait! - can we lay around on the couch/air mattress and listen to this about 100 times while you're here? it just doesn't get old...


i've been a little obsessed with felt these days... i'm trying to work it in to my christmas tree decorations for this year (pictures to come) - but i've had a hard time finding the colors i wanted. but today i was catching up on my blogs and i found filzfelt's etsy shop through design*sponge, and they have just the charcoal grey and green i've been looking for! - a little pricey, but good to know about. 

and how cute are their ornaments???

ohmygoodness beautiful

found these today via oh joy - "corner forest" by yuken teruya. i gasped when i saw them. who would have thought something so great could have come from a toilet paper roll??... i wish i thought like this. this is something that (with a very sharp knife) would probably be fairly easy to make (but of course not as beautifully as he did them!...) - love it!

one of the reasons i love fall so much....

the absolutely beautiful, highlighter-yellow-gold leaves of the gingko trees on 18th street (among other streets too, but especially the ones on 18th...)

i am sad all the leaves are falling off. just had to share...
