some of the animals


1. jessie; 2. pinky leon; 3. chicks (so far: miss ohio, charlie brown, one i'm calling penguin, nebraska, and honey); 4. bees!

that last photo is from a video of the bees in action. you can see the pollen pants on a couple of the returning bees! you can also hear the yard.

county line harvest


an outstanding in the field farm dinner, this time in petaluma, right across from straus ranch. such a gorgeous part of california. great food, great table mates (including an entertaining, opinionated, surly rancher), ridiculous views. fog rolled in during dinner and the blankets were passed out. brr.

last year, we went to capay farm

it's been so fun to see the amazing and clever entries to courtney and alicia's strikeaway show

i sorted through jars and jars of matchbooks/boxes at the alameda antique stores. found some gems (above). (couple of closeups.) unfortunately i saved working on mine until the last minute and didn't have time to execute the one i had in mind. instead it became a simple one: note to self

some of my favorites from the ones i've seen:
hey yonder shop's whale
lindsay anne watson's burning house
sonya philip's
ian mclellan davis' zine
vase and flowers by molly hatch
