New York was fabulous! Very cold, lots of walking, lots of eating, lots of sightseeing. I thought I would have tons of photos to show you, but because it was so cold and we were with the kids, it just wasn't the time to stop and take photos...we had to keep things moving! But we managed to do and see so many things and I hope the kids will have fond memories of our trip. I know I will.
Except for the fact that our car broke down on our way back to Boston. Time to get a new car.
The kids have school vacation this week, and we are hanging out at home today. We made puffed apple pancake (p. 649 The Gourmet Cookbook, 2004) for breakfast. No pictures of it because it was eaten too fast!
In Porto. I loved the tilework on the facades of the buildings and their old, crumbly, state of decay. Sounds strange, but trust me, if you go, you will find it beautiful. I remember all the food there was delicious. Homey comfort food like roast chicken and kale and potato soup, and fish stew. And some port after dinner, if you like that sort of thing. I do.
Taken on a trip to Spain years ago. Somewhere in the western part of Andalucia, I think. I loved the white villages there. I've been browsing our old travel photos, thinking of past trips, dreaming of future ones. I'll post a photo each day this week of places we've been. Have a good start to the week!
My shop is now filled with Valentine's gifts. Zip bags to hold little treasures, lavender pillows that smell so sweet, bookmarks to make you smile when you open your favorite book. I just can't resist vintage fabrics...there's something so special and unique about them, the colors, the patterns, the softness. I had so much fun making them all.
I'm a designer and seamstress. I make bags and pillows out of vintage and natural fabrics. I'm a mom of two. I like pretty things.
All photos are mine unless otherwise noted. If you would like to use them, just let me know. Thank you!
