I love callling someone crackers, as in crazy kooky nuts. This however is CRACKERS! I made them last night after bedtime and before Italian gardens was on at 9. It hasn't been on in ages- ha and look at that, its on you tube of course- but I was so exited to see it on the tv and had an hour to kill, so crackers it was! I have been wanting to make them for a while as part of my "You mean I can actually make that myself?" campaign, which is an offshoot of my "Holy crap I need to save money till I can get a job" program. I got the recipe off pinterest and here, 101 cookbooks. They're great! Lovely with the hummus I made to go with them. Triumph! If Finch likes them, it will be even better. I even got to finally use my ravioli cutter that I must have bought 15 years ago in a moment of inspiration. It was very effective.
I am loving overlapping patterns and colours, and using patterns I created for spoonflower as fill in photoshop images. Also trying to heave myself out of this endless winter mood with some springy brightness.
I am determined to get comfortable with the beautiful camera my brother passed along to me, a Canon rebel XTi (so lucky!), and what better place to start than the chaos that surrounds me!
I like these shots because they look like glamor shots of these beloved trucks, two of Finch's favorites, and also like they are shots of two people you have a crush on, in a crowd...if you know what I mean! Zero in on the cute one!
Ahem... anyway, I am enjoying playing around a bit. I love kitchens and think I will take some shots of the messy everyday. I also checked in on Flickr for the first time in years. All my old old pics are still there! I was sure they had gone away as there used to be a 200 picture limit, but no more. Nice to see those old friends again.
Our frosty windows, magical patterns! How does nature manage to be so spectacular!
A chilly post Christmas walk at Sandbanks. The lake was freezing and still there was a flock of adorable little Buffleheads bobbing and diving in the waves.
This has been one crazy winter! Between ice storms, weeks at -15C or colder and endless snow, I'd say I am ready for some springtime! I do like February though. I like the pinks, reds and hearts of Valentines day, I love the spring flowers coming in at the supermarket and the bags of mini eggs tempting me from the candy aisle!
