play time


I hope you find time to get out and explore this weekend! It has been unseasonably mild in Seattle this November, and we've been taking advantage of it at every opportunity.

A few things that caught my eye this week:
HandMadeNation
Thanksgiving place markers and Thanksgiving traditions
Deconstructing the Art Wall
The cutest onesie ever
Driftwood art

I hope to have a little time to read my book this weekend.

I really need some new music - what are you listening to these days?


Happy Friday!

Music... I've been playing with making mix tapes on mixwit.com. Here's one I'm working on, but you can go make your own!

Also reading: The Wonder of Boys, by Michael Gurian. (trying to figure out how little boy brains work.)

Have a great weekend, and enjoy the mild weather!

Lecia thanks for the great posts this week. Enjoy The Unheard. I'm reading Sweet & Low (and everyone's blogs).

Last night added some more great music to hubby's I Pod. All over the music map: From Lenny Kravitz to Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes.

Love the pic of the crab and water swirls. Have a great weekend. xo

I've never been very fond of the ocean...beaches and sun just aren't really my thing. However, I'm starting to think I just haven't found the right type of beaches and ocean for me. Your pictures are very appealing!

Just as an FYI - all of the trouble I've had with commenting seems to be on my side. I rather randomly will go to a blog to comment and it won't recognize that I'm on blogger. It also won't let me sign in on blogger on someone else's blog. SO, I don't think that I've had trouble with your comments at all! Just mine!

Lecia,

Love the pictures! Mmmm... if I close my eyes I almost can smell mother earth on those cute little hands!

Oh dear as for reading I love to read, but like Ina I am spending time reading everyone's blog. I hope there is a group forming for blogger addiction (for me)!! I bring work home and don't get it done because I'm surfing blogs. I guess I will have to train my mind like a little one no work, no blog!!

As for music my favorite is listening to my husband play is guitar! I would like him to record his music, few songs have words but mostly just the peacefulness of the strings. Since I can't carry a tune I love all kinds of music from jazz to easy listening, country etc...

Oops got carried away on writing.

Have a golden weekend Lecia!

Thanks for the links and the beautiful post. Hugs...

Thanks for the link love m'dear! That onesie really is priceless...if only it were acceptable for adults to wear stuff that cute ;)

sounds like a fab weekend you have planned! we're driving up to the mountains to visit family for a week of thanksgiving goodness...

in the new music department, I just discovered Jamie Lidell---if you're into Stevie Wonder at all, he's a great contemporary take on that happy, peppy sound. Worth a listen for sure!

Lecia, Great pics! Love the crab in the water. Thanks for the tip on the book. I have been looking for a gift for my sis who is a total book hound! Gonna give "Unheard" a whirl! I am a lover of music from the 60's and 70's, have XM radio so I tune in and sing my lungs out when I am driving from client to client! AHHHH, the good 'ol days!

Happy Weekend! :)

wanted to share a musical treasure... one of those artists that almost breaks your heart it's so beautiful
http://www.virb.com/timbre
I saw her in a little bar in Brooklyn & fell in love... how could you not love a young woman who carts an actual full-sized harp around the country with her?! Plus, the juxtaposition of purely angelic sounds with a Radiohead influence... it's like dark chocolate and raspberries.
(I, too can just smell the salty air from your lovely photos... oh, how I long for the ocean!)

That starfish is amazing I can't wait till I can show my kids. Thank you for the picture!

I'm reading Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series. Again. On book 6.
Try out Michael Buble if you haven't yet. I love him.
