I could go Christmas shopping for others

Or I could buy a ridiculously awesome hat, vintage glasses, and a print on etsy. Gifts for moi.

happy belated Thanksgiving.

I spent a collective 21 (rainy) hours in the car, was in Michigan for 4 days, ate a lot of junk, made homemade gravy from turkey drippings, watched Home Alone 1 and 2, took a long hike on the sand dunes with my family, and tried to figure out Christmas shopping. I also took zero pictures and left my camera at my mom's house. I'm off in 11 days until 2010. Private school teaching has its rewards. This exciting week includes paying bills, planning some Navidad activities for my students, a little shopping, looking around on Etsy, and generally trying not to be too ansty. Ho ho ho.

Robert Frank

Photo exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art until January 2010. A German Jewish immigrant, Frank spent 2 years traveling in America in the mid 50s and took over 700 rolls of film. He was arrested in Arkansas for being unshaven and having New York plates.

jump for my love

I enjoy jumping. I enjoy art museums. So this blog is genius.
But there are not enough photos there. I clearly need to head to the nearest art museum, stat.

kid design

Once upon a time when I was 9, my family built a lovely house in a lovely suburb. I was allowed to pick the carpet color for my room (hardwood hadn't quite made the resurgence/resale value that it has today). Being awesome, I picked dark emerald green. And soon had an emerald green valance to match. Seafoam green bedding and walls arrived in middle school. Sweet. The only thing that saved it was my grandma's awesome antique sleigh bed and dresser that I inherited, although they probably looked out of place. Somewhere in high school my budding designer kicked in and I became interested in antiquing, furniture, and generally not having an all-green room.

What I would do now if I could redesign my childhood room....
