Fairytale Letters

More playing with pmc. A little irregular, rough around the edges, chipped right off of a rococo museum wall.

And while I was at it, I made another Under Her Charm chandelier pendant.

Find them for a limited time in my etsy shop.

Scenes from Treasure Island

Yesterday we went to the Treasure Island Music Festival (sans children). My favorites were She & Him, Broken Social Scene, The National and Belle and Sebastian. Here are some pictures in hipstamatic.

She & Him ("She" is Zooey Deschanel, not sure who "Him" is)

Ferris wheels are made for hipstamatic

Chandeliers, too

A little steampunk

We love Fairyland in Oakland, and today we got to go with Granny and Grandpa Arnie. While the kids were busy exploring, using magic keys, and watching puppet shows, I was playing with my iPhone Hipstamatic app.

Yes, the Alice in Wonderland exhibit is my favorite!

Four of a Kind Friday!

Ronnie, Ben and Lila looked so similar as babies (and still do), that I used to have Three of a Kind Thursday on my blog, where I matched up pictures, and you could hardly tell who was who (or whom?). Here is an example.

WELL, here is the first Four of a Kind Friday! Of course, there won't be any more Four of a Kind Fridays for about 20 more weeks, but here are their profiles at minus 20 weeks, in chronological order.
