summer lovin'

a beach side image to leave you on as i disappear to a remote island on the cusp of desolation sound for two weeks without electricity, let alone internet.
from one of many beautiful and inspiring images at the folk type pool on flickr.
looking forward to seeing the real you upon my return!

you say tomato

sahara of savary.
behold! the first tomato from my garden. about the size of a golf ball and perfectly ripe. i just ate it with a little sea salt...yum
lovely pattern website. i will be posting your birthday book today.
can't wait to see what you make.

darling sarah,
happy birthday to you!
+ because i don't want your heart to be broken,
i found this for you with some fancy detective work.
[and it's even in english!]
will post it as soon as i can and hopefully it will reach you before you leave to savary. it will be perfect for rainy day projects!
hope your day is filled with love, smiles and plenty of cake.
i wish i was there to celebrate with you
+ doodle with markers on the wee cy.
much love,
j o w

pen love

i'm crazy for those dresses!
they remind me of some lovely bleeding felt drawings i've seen, by an artist who's name escapes me at the moment.

around here, we've lately discovered our own particular mode of decoration with the old felt pen.
fortunately, not permanent.

ink blotch dresses

props to you girlfriend! only you would come up with Logan's Run...genius and way out of left field!
on the subject of dresses, i found these beauties via swissmiss. i think they are so beautiful although not quite sure, how renewable?. you can read all about his dress project here.
i'm guessing you are up at savary so i'll be dancing with myself for a while.
enjoy the sunshine + sand!
