A Walk in the Park

Me, my baby belly, dogface and my cameras all took a walk to the famous Rose Gardens this morning. What a nice way to start a day...

I think Lewis Carroll would be proud

Read a bit of USA Today at lunchtime and got a preview of next year's Alice in Wonderland... Tim Burton style, that is. It looks like it's going to be beautiful!!! I wish my brain was so creative. Tim Burton proves that it pays to keep pushing further and further when it comes to your art. Oh, and Johnny Depp as Mad Hatter? That's a tea party I'd like to be at!

My Little Shop

I recently ended my morning-sickness-induced Etsy hiatus and gave my little shop some much needed love. I posted some pictures for sale and I'm super excited to have one chosen for this Treasury:
I'm also really excited about my next shop update... new prints and a lovely new product I've been working on and am proud to offer. 
Check back soon to see what it is! :)

Baby on the Brain

It recently occurred to me that I'm rapidly approaching my due date and have SO MUCH to do before our little gal arrives!!! We all know I have my priorities straight, so for the last 24 hours I've done little more than decorate the nursery. Virtually that is. I think I've got it mostly worked out... at least until I change my mind again. I'm about to order all this stuff online so speak now or forever hold your peace. Here is the crib... just the crib and none of the other stuff in this picture:
Here is the quilt I'm going to make along with the bumper and dust ruffle out of Heather Bailey's beautiful Pop Garden fabrics:
Here is the rocking chair:
And the sheepskin rug:
I'm soon to be receiving the dresser I used while growing up that my mom had used while she was growing up. Now it will be Little One's. I think I'm going to paint it a color similar to this: (picture from Rachel Denbow's home tour on Flickr. Check it out, her house is darling)
And then I'll put on some crystal drawer pulls and slap one of these cute decals on the front in orange or some equally cute color: (You also must check out byrdiegraphics on Etsy, they have fabulous designs!)
I also intend to make my own mobile composed entirely of brightly colored tissue paper poms: Sooooo pretty!

World TtV Day 2009

Today is World TtV Day 2009 and for this special event, I took my contraption to the Sisters Rodeo in beautiful central OR. To see what other TtV'ers did today, go to this Flickr group. I'm new to Flickr (been wanting to join for a while and today's events pushed me to procrastinate no longer) so my profile and albums need a lot of work but I'm a member nonetheless. Looking forward to making new photo friends!

Things That Make Me Happy

I really am fairly easy to please. Here are a few of my current obsessions. Little things that bring joy to my heart each time I partake.

This Snack:
(The spiny exterior used to intimidate me... how to get that juicy goodness out? These days I could teach a class on how to most effectively cut this baby.)
This Show:
This Beverage:
This Book:
This Commercial:
(Random, I know, but I love the look of pure bliss on that kid's face when he's hoisted on the crowd's shoulders. I get excited for him every time.)
