Winter is for Weaving


It’s not winter just yet. I know. But it’s getting cooler, and something about the chill in the air makes me once again excited to sit down at my loom and play. I started weaving two years ago when I joined the Peninsula Weavers’ Guild here in Port Townsend. The guild members taught me the […]

Last week I some photos of a few of the beautiful, useful objects in my brother’s woodworking shop. My brother has always insisted on doing things the right way, which definitely means with the right tool.

Sanibel Island and the Everglades


I recently spent a little over a week in southern Florida with my partner and my parents. My parents are avid bird-watchers, and we got a crash course at some incredible wildlife sanctuaries–namely, J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel Island and National Audubon Society’s Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary outside the city of Naples. Despite […]

Postcards from Europe: Poznan

An alley within Poznan's central square

On Tuesday I told you about how I lost my camera at the beginning of my recent trip to Europe, and showed you some pretty postcards from Copenhagen’s Danish Design Center. Today I have some postcards to post from my second stop, Poznan, Poland. My friend found these postcards at a little kiosk as we […]
