it's a little early for the real thing, but cocktails in letters are nice.
good morning.

a bit closer

such pretty mailboxes.

that reminds me. did you see feist on the muppets singing the monster version of 1234? i warn you that it will get stuck in your head. (she looks like charlotte gainsbourg here.)

good morning

on this monday.

i was indoors almost all weekend doing homework. i'm looking forward to taking a walk today outside in the beautiful becoming-fall weather. i do have to do more homework, but i feel much lighter today than i did through the weekend.
i did manage to watch amelie yesterday. it had been a while. love that movie. a good friend of mine doesn't love it, which i find baffling. how could one not love that movie?! seems impossible.

mav's and stephanie's year of mornings arrived a couple days ago, and it is so wonderful (of course). exciting that sandra and famapa are taking up a 3191 inspired project, how we say hello.

shapes: green and pink

bingo! some ephemera jenny sent along with this triangle dress i bought (for the fabric).

ug. this weekend i fell into the time sucker of facebook. (or ansiktsboken as my cousin calls it. ha! i love it when swedes translate english words to swedish. so often they just use english words interspersed in swedish, so it's fun to me when they change it up. or spell english words in a swedish way, like emajl instead of email {though i could be wrong about that one}.) it is fun (and weird) though to find high school folks and my cousins on there.

graphic links +

night-time neighbors
(only because i didn't manage to take photos during the day.)

RADNESS (click on mossenger!)
bolsadeosos (purse of bears?! the only reason i remember this from spanish is because during the spanish ap test in high school, the picture story i was supposed to describe for the verbal part was all about a bear. i of course panicked at the site of the tape recorder and forgot the word for bear {oso}. so i was saying gran animal quite a lot. i figure that probably contributed to my just getting a 3 on that test. but now i never forget the word for bear, so hey.)
brandon lesley's

saw the movie in search of a midnight kiss this weekend and quite enjoyed it. also saw vicky cristina barcelona a couple weeks ago and really liked that.

yellow zipper

there it is. the really poorly made pen, pencil, exakto, crayons, scissors, pad o'paper, etc. bag i just sewed while i procrastinated. ehem, i mean while i took a break from doing my homework. the zipper clearly doesn't match and is sewn in all wrong. but it's gigantic, lined with jeans for sturdiness and the fabric is cute, right? so it will do the job. my last pencil case was a cardboard box, so i'd say this is an upgrade. pinky leon likes it.

tendrils and shoots

pretty plants outside of scarlet sage.

i hope this summery weather lasts a little longer, although it does make it harder to do homework.

smoothie chairs + slow food

look, smoothie-colored chairs!

sometimes i feel so proud of sf. above is a slow food festival event in dolores park. what a perfect day for a long table in the park! i wish i had bought tix to some of the slow food events. their festival poster is nice too. i would link to it, but can't find it on their site.
