*****






*Thanks for all your nice comments on the postcards!
*I found these two paintings at the flea market over the weekend. First one was $2, second one was $10.
*I finished knitting a scarf. Now I can't wait to knit another one.
*More leaves and a funky window.
*Over the weekend, the lovely Karina of El Beso chose some of my photos to illustrate a post on finding things to enjoy in a tough economy. I am so flattered! Thank you, Karina!!

Your post has a distinctly soft yellowy feel to it today. Nice job on the scarf....I love really simple scarves and yours looks very cosy.

I love this post Jill. The top photo reminds me somehow on G. Morandi and the scarf is wonderful - one of my favourites colours.

thanks for all your nice comments, ladies! i've been working on sewing all week, and it's kind of solitary, so it's nice to check in and hear these encouraging things from my blog friends! knitting is really so satisfying...i want to do more.

esti: i know, isn't that funny how the apple seems to come out of the cup? i didn't intend that effect, but i like it :)

artycho: i agree...scarf would match perfectly with the yellow cord bell hat in your boutique...i'm dreaming about it :)
