I came across this site and quite naturally had to share some pictures with you! I could gaze at them all day. Or better yet: take a trip to France and visit them in person! This little company sells vintage gypsy wagons as well as reproductions. I have officially decided I must have such a wagon in my backyard someday (if I don’t already have one as my “official little house“). It will be my creative studio where I will also keep my vintage typewriter. I hope you will stop by for tea…
We returned today from our 2nd annual trek to The Sasquatch Festival. It was very hot and I only managed to evade sunburn with a giant golf umbrella that Aaron had the wisdom to bring! Our favorite bands were all wonderful, but The Decemberists were particularly exceptional! I highly recommend their new album and all live performances. Another pleasant surprise: The Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Karen O. is a truly fabulous force to be reckoned with.
Unfortunately, I battled a horrible headache most of the day and ended up quite sick by the end of it all. I’m still glad we went, but now I would like to spend the rest of the long weekend in the photo above. (Or take a day trip to Portland which is another adventure Aaron and I considering…) How was your weekend?

The other afternoon on my daily walk along the waterfront I happen to look to the beach at just the right moment and saw this wonderful tree man! I am fascinated by face carvings in trees and always thought that someday if I ever own a house it must have a forest with at least one or two tree people.
I don’t know where or when this tree man came to be, but I entertained myself for while by imagining it had been created in a some vast forest that was eventualy logged and then this lovely stump washed up on the beach in a storm. Most likely it was carved after the fact, but either way I’m happy to have discovered him!

I just love Shakespeare! I’m taking a class this quarter that mainly focuses on his comedies. A Midsummer Night’s Dream has long been my very favorite. I simply can’t resist a good faerie tale ! Much Ado About Nothing is a close second. It’s SO very funny and I love the witty Beatrice! I wish I could think as many clever things to say as often as she does! (Although the title quote is from Benedict) Do you love Shakespeare? What is your favorite play?
All of the above photos are the famous Cottingley Fairies. I’ve always felt a little sad that it wasn’t all true… Ahhhh, the days before photoshop… Have a lovely weekend!
I have happily been tagged by Tina Tarnoff of Though Patterns! (Check out her beautiful papercuts! They are SO amazing!) The way it works is that I must list 6 “(un)important ” things that make me happy. (Though I have to say I really do consider all of these to be rather important after all… ) After I give my list I must, in turn, tag some other blogs. So here goes…
1) Truly, my dearest daily cup of coffee, I have tried to live without you and found it quite impossible…
2) Tree- lined pathways…
3) Sunlight reflecting off hardwood floors
5) A cozy blanket
6) Gypsy Art!
I would like to tag these blogs in return. Check them out! They are lovely…
