Badlands, Yellowstone, and off to Texas

Bear with me while I run around my new home and revel in its gorgeousness. Paul and I went to Yellowstone on Wednesday and what started out to be a kind of crummy day turned out to be spectacularly beautiful. We saw super-saturated landscapes after the rain (find the rainbow in the photo below) and had [...]


Just a quick update to let everyone know that we arrived safely in Bozeman last night, greeted by a glowing orange sun setting over the Bridger Mountains. The trip was amazing–we drove through New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, South Dakota, Wyoming and then, Montana. Over the 2500 miles we got to stop and [...]

Color Inspiration

Tomorrow is moving day, and we’ve been running around like crazy packing things, sweeping up dust, and deciding if throwing away a 2″ square decorative box will save me space in the truck, in the long run. I’m pretty much set at this point, everything is cancelled and in order. 
I wanted to share these two [...]

Paper-Cut Portraits

I haven’t been doing much of the crafty sort at all lately, but I wanted to share these paper-cut portraits that Paul and I had done on my last day of work. In typical “I’ve walked by this corner every day and never seen this” fashion, I noticed a table with paper cut portraiture. At [...]

Friday: Blue

I’ve been writing all of these posts ahead of time (it’s Tuesday right now, and Paul is 5 hours from being here, not to mention Friday is my last day of work, so you can see why!). Blue is kind of a hard color for me, because I automatically imagine a darker blue, which isn’t one of [...]

Thursday: Orange

Today I’m going back to some photos I took over 2 years ago, of Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s public art project, The Gates. At the time, I was just leaving my job at Newsweek, which was right by the park (which made for some lovely lunches!). I went out every day and took photos, and on weekends [...]

Wednesday: Yellow

Yellow is, in my mind, the color of summer. This weekend I went to the beach with my brother and two yellow things popped in.

This rather nice looking school bus (look at the shine on that grill!), and…

the mustard squiggle on my hot dog. Yeah!

And here’s yellow in the spotlight, reacting to the other strips in [...]

Tuesday: Green

For today’s color, let’s go to the wonderful little island of Burano, in Venice, where I travelled in March. Not to be confused with Murano, the glass-making island, Burano is a colorful island known for lace-making that is about 40 minutes out on the vaporetto. I read about it in our guidebook and knew it was [...]

Color Week: Red/Pink

I set up this little shot this weekend after winding about 11 hanks of yarn (7 of them pink). I figured I should do that while I had access to the swift my roommate owns. At this point my craft supplies are all in taped up boxes, but my room is still a mess!

This shot [...]
