Aaaand I'm bad at posting again. Go figure.

Last week I got the pleasure to work with one of my favorite clients Rebecca Kawanami of River Wave Foods. We did a little photo shoot of her products followed by a portrait session. She is a beautiful person inside and out and her sauces are amazingly yummy!

30th Day

My sister Kaylyn got these measuring cups for me for our house warming this summer. I adore them. Thanks sis! I'm pretty sure they are going to make very cute little vases for when the flowers start blooming also. I love multitasking kitchen ware.

Today concludes my 30 days of continuous blogging. Thanks everyone who has been reading and looking. This was a really good exercise for me...blogging is no longer a chore, but fun. And now I know people actually notice my posts, thank you for your support!

Bunny Toe Tree

Another walk around the block reveals tiny signs that spring will indeed happen, even though it seems darker than ever out there. Crocus are starting to pop up and these furry little bud buddies. Does anyone know what kind of tree this is? The buds look like mini rabbits feet. I wonder if they are good luck?

Mmmmm pretty colors! Thanks to some extra Christmas money, I now have every acceptable color of fiesta that is out right now (plus 2 retired colors, don't be jealous) I have no need for brown or white, those supposed colors mean nothing to me.

Word on the street is that a new one is coming out, Marigold...I can hardly wait, and then, and then I will have a set of 10! Hopefully everyone will have a real plate next apologies to those who ate on paper or other random pieces of kitchenware.

Awhile ago I did a shoot for Converse. They were doing a demonstration on the Nike campus. These kids were positioned all over with signs and boom boxes and and other hip, young stuff 'protesting' that Converse is a big deal and they demand to be noticed. (Nike owns Converse in case anyone doesn't know) It was fun and oh man kids these days...they're getting younger by the minute.

Many of you know we bought a house in April. We aren't in a horrible neighborhood...just an interesting one. One of the highlights is the D.A.V. bingo hall. Dan calls it Dave's. Like our buddy Dave down the street just happens to be rounding up some folks for a friendly little game. It's not at all like that.

I believe it is the largest one in Portland. Bingo 3x daily starting at 10 am, 365 days/year. These people are serious. And it is pretty awesome. Dan and I have been there 3 times and I think I just might be ready for my 4th. Any takers?

Just some dead grass...and not the good kind. This is the time of the year when we drink a lot (see yesterday's post) and dream of warm weather. Sigh. I do believe I need to get myself some fresh flowers and brighten my attitude up! But first, another glass of wine.
