Once a year, usually around Christmas, I organize my digital photos into folders by year and event. Things have been piling up, though, so I decided to go through the photos from the past few months. I take a lot of pictures which are meant to end up on this blog, either in a post or as an album, but they usually don't for one reason or another. Some of my favorites of the batch for sharing...
I love Felix Doolittle's address labels. Mine have the typewriter illustration on them. I also love the packaging!
In a frenzy of online shopping, I ordered a gift set from Thymes, a company from Minneapolis, MN, that has great bath/body products and packaging. I especially love their Kimono Rose scent, so after making it through the move to Roslindale, I ordered myself a gift set as a treat. As with the Felix Doolittle labels, the unwrapping became an enjoyable part of my purchase:
I still get "home"sick for The 'Ville, and sometimes I drive the 10 miles back for a visit. While picking up some random things at Shaws in Porter Square, I saw this sight -- VOLVO SANDWICH! (Vinny is on the right)
Enough about me...other people also share their photos, some of which I like enough to add to my iPhoto library:
Half Pint and Mr. Car are such dears -- with deers! (Taken on their recent vacation to Seattle)
Even though I have settled into a state of cohabitational calm, it's nice to know that there's still a girl out there rocking the wedding receptions. I present The Dairy Queen, a closet tambourine lover. Check out the band singer's *jazz* hands -- too much!
Finally, this past weekend Half Pint, Mr. Car, Cho, Bobby, BBK, The Prof and I (whew!) enoyed the delightful Sunday weather to take a walk around Mt. Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge. If you live in the area, I'd definitely recommend a visit; it's not nearly as creepy as you might think, hiking around old graves. Aside from searching for soon-to-be-hip baby names on gravestones (Cho's idea,) visitors to "the first large-scale designed landscape open to the public in the United States." can see its "horticultural collections", which are "internationally renowned." The cemetery also has some large scale monuments and a chapel.
