Rainy Weather, Thoughts and Images

I drove to New Jersey yesterday to work with my good friend Andrea Lekberg (of The Artist Baker) on a new textile project. It rained hard all day- making highway travel even more challenging. Coming back, the play of the lights inspired me to shoot my camera by resting it at different angles on the dash. I couldn't see what I was doing- I'm not so crazy that I would take my eyes off the road- but when a slow down occurred in front of me. I aimed and pushed the shutter. Sometimes my favorite results are the ones over which I have the least control.

Design Time

The past year (or so) I have been designing kitchen towels for my friend Andrea to sell at her shop The Artist Baker in Morristown, NJ.  She recently expressed an interest in selling scarves of my designs for holiday, so I've been working with squares again. As a major scarf nut ( ask any of my family members), it's been fun to work out what kind of designs I wanted to make and how to put the elements together. I'm not done, I don't think. But it's fun to share a work in progress!

Too Much to Report


I've been to the movies twice, a museum exhibit, volunteered at our local book sale, photographed the Battle of the Books for a second time, documented our Y's annual masquerade ball, and helped a friend at her place of business.

But the highlight was seeing Hamlet with Benedict Cumberbatch. (Thank you Lisa for the invite!) It was the most riveting performance of the play that I have ever seen. (and the lighting- pure magic!)

Sunday Morning

The past few years our neighbors have engaged in major construction projects, so when Sunday rolls around and we get a break from all the improving and rehabbing, it's a relief to sit outside, sip a cup of coffee and revel in the peace and quiet.

A tour of the garden reveals a back lit leaf with its architecture sharply displayed. I far prefer these elements in their structural simplicity that don't waver from their original form or seek expensive upgrades. Another opportunity to appreciate the small things available to all in Sleepy Hollow.

Lost for Words

A "vintage" carryall that costs in this price range somehow rattles my moral compass. (And the fact that most of the offerings will be sold within the first hour of the sale. What a world.)

Available Now

Among the assorted tasks, goals and obligations I've been working on my publishing project, My Resale ABC. It's an alphabetic array of things I sold on Ebay featuring my product photos and anecdotes about life and family. It's been very rewarding to bring this idea to life!

(in case you are interested the price is $24.95 and shipping and handling are $5.00. Contact me at to arrange purchase details.)
