New aprons shipping today!

Pretty, pretty, pretty, and off to the Herban Garden in Fairfax, CA - which is beautiful to the max. It's one of my favorite shops and the fact that they carry my things? Makes me blissful beyond words.

Around here....

Mm-mm Spring. It's warm and poppy-ful around here and I have finally become used to running in the pitch black of 6:20 in the morning - so.... I'm off to Amsterdam at the end of the week where it is definitively still winter. 39 degrees.
We have been flying kites and visiting the pet ER this weekend. Rue got stuck in a wire fence and was found dangling by a foot. I know - any farmer worth her salt would have dispatched Rue and fried her, but. She was such a sad little heap of feathers and I'm a really bad farmer.
She's fine now - and by far, the most expensive hen we have.

Thinking about....

Thinking about: packing my suitcase.
Trying not to think about: being away from my babes.

Around here....

Nobody wanted that last chocolate cupcake with whiskey-spiked buttercream, did they? I hope not.

Goodbye, big project!

I love you but I'm not sorry to see you go.... You great big beautiful stack of aprons - off to your new life in a NYC restaurant opening soon. How exciting for you!

Around here....

I took my kids to the opera - a dress rehearsal of La Traviata. Which? I don't know - I don't even love opera so I'm not sure why that seemed like a good idea - except, you know, where the hell do I ever go, right? I had sort of an: I'd pay a dollar to see that moment. About 20 minutes in, Fin was crying and pointing at the exit. Later he told me that it made him forget all the songs he likes.

Not the big project.

This is not the big project. It looks almost just like the big project, but it's just a little side project distraction made from the scraps of the big project. I'm keeping this one, but I'll put some like it in the shop soon!

Around here.....

Around here, it's been 75 degrees every day for a week. If you're mad, just call me and I'll tell you what I paid for my house. You won't be mad anymore.
