Our mailman has been busy.  Yesterday he brought me a wonderful package from Blair.




It is all so lovely!  I adore the bits of Japanese fabric and the "E" card is already hanging in the studio.  The log cabin sachets are just gorgeous – and they smell divine, too.  Did you notice that one of them is mostly green?  She must know me!  And do you see Blair’s little label?  Ack!  It is so cute and positively perfect in every way.  Thank you, friend.  I love it all!


This is our first CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) allotment!  Hooray!  It made me incredibly happy to find a group we could join this late in the game.  So until the end of October, we will have fresh, local produce.  We ate the cucumbers, the corn and a couple tomatoes last night.  The squash and the peppers will probably make up part of our meal tonight.  I used this website to locate a CSA in our area.  I know Cristina used it, too, and found a CSA on the other side of the country.  Take a look if you are interested.  Tonight I am hitting a small farmers’ market in search of local meat.  Wish me luck.

And if this post weren’t random enough, there is more.  I read Cassi’s blog and decided to join her meme for August.  So beginning tomorrow, for the rest of the month, I will be posting an Encyclopedia of Me.  This summer has flown by and I am hoping by doing this, I can accomplish some things around the house and in the studio, play with the girls, relax and enjoy what is left of summer.  I plan on posting photos, too.  I can’t promise that they will have anything to do with the day’s topic as I seem to be caught up in photographing food these days.  It’s the combination of good afternoon light by my kitchen sink and having food on the brain, I think.

Back tomorrow with the letter "a".
