Being Quiet

Reading this....


(I love Jane's distinction between domesticity and domestication)

 ...inspired me to crochet this small rug

 
and make this my cozy quiet place.

Ready for Camp!

I'm taking a break from August Break since I've been getting ready to leave for camp this week. And what trip to camp would be complete without some friendship bracelets and camp journals? I can't wait for the fun to begin!

August Break Day 13 - My Guilty Pleasure


Tilamook Oregon Strawberry Ice Cream

August Break Day 12 - On the Table


This is our big old table that sits between the kitchen and the living room. I love that Sal and Peppy look like they're peeking out of the tray. If you look at the window ledge between the chair back you can see a few of Q's collection of old Santas....they stay out all year long. This past year I gave the table top a coating of chalkboard paint. When everyone's together we have a great time drawing all over it!

August Break Day 10 - Drink


The suggestion today was to "go outside and place your drink in a scene you love." So, this is my coffee among the geraniums on my front porch.

August Break Day 9 - In My Bag...

My everyday Maruca bag with wallet, glasses case, 2cents change purse, rolled up shopping bag, cinnamon Altoid smalls, a card from and old Hearts deck, my favorite Burt's Bees raisin lip gloss, an emery board, a pen, a loose quarter, a used ferry ticket and a heart shaped stone I picked up on a hike recently.

Not shown: various receipts and a used tissue

August Break Day 8 - Selfie

Ok...I have to admit this isn't really me but I'm a reluctant selfie poster.  I did add my actual selfie to the August Break Instagram site.
