From Soulemama  {this moment} – A Friday ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

Dainty Saucers

Today Mike and L went to the Please Touch Museum (thanks for the membership Nana!), while I got some much needed studio time. On the way there they stopped at the Lancaster Flea Market at 55th & Lancaster Ave and through the jumble found some lovely new discarded china saucers. One set is a lovely floral transferware pattern with a made in Japan stamp and the other  is a wonderful blue willow pattern in “pink” although it looks more burgundy to me it’s also made in Japan with the stamp. Mike does much of his plate hunting with L by his side, and she is getting a good eye too. Since she was quite young she knew how to pick things up very gently and put them back too. She hasn’t broken one yet, and well, if she did… They are quite a plate finding team! Mike says when he goes out by himself it just isn’t as fun.

Hello! An almost wordless friday…

I love the wordless Fridays that SouleMama does.{this moment} – A Friday ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. However since this is my first post maybe I should say something? Ever since we got over the flu we’ve been craving oatmeal around here. We love it with raisins and apples and a little cinnamon. We just finished the most delicious applesauce that my friend canned and it reminds me that I really want to start to do that. This picture was taken at breakfast time, right after finishing up that apple pie oatmeal I thought to take some pictures of some of the jewelry Mike was bringing to Magic Gardens today with L. Well since the camera was out she just had to be in… the photo’s are a little wonky but here we go.

Enjoy your Friday and all your weekend plans! It’s supposed to snow here tonight..I can’t wait! ImageImageImageImage
