we had an ant infestation in the honey. unfortunately for these little creatures, the sweetness overtook them and they got stuck in it. i love the formations of the honey - it looks like sticky quartz crystals.

one of the things i enjoy most about life in humboldt is shopping at the arcata farmer's market. today was the first market day this year, and we bought a lot of delicious and beautiful things! among them - a big bunch of lilacs and these farm grown eggs which are actually a delicate shade of pale blue.

the visitor!

in october of 2006, i got a phone call from a movie prop stylist. she had seen my table at the atlantic antic street fair, and wanted to borrow my tee shirts for a street fair scene on a movie set. this is the movie!!! the visitor, by writer/director thomas mccarthy (who also made the station agent) is opening this friday at select theaters, with a wider release next week. unfortunately, eureka is off everybody's map so i will have to wait eons to see this film. if you are in ny, the movie will be at the sunshine theater - please go and tell me how it is!!

thanks to karen of turn and press for including one of the i heart japan totes in her tote bag roundup! her blog features tutorials of basic sewing projects. i sure could use some of those, i should probably follow along....

the area we live in is filled with redwoods. today on our walk we explored some nooks and details of the neighborhood.
