hey ya'll, just a note to say i'm going off line for awhile. going to the desert to lay under the sun. then going under the knife for some minor/major surgery. then going to recover.

first shot

oops. the brownie is visible in the photo. but it's also kind of cute. kind of like a double exposure. other not so great shots here.

this is just me screwing around before I have the contraption...which the mister is currently making. god bless him and his exacto knife and his straight edge.

Number 5. Or one third of it.

Thank you, ebay.

and thank you to colleen, who kept the box her brownie came in. And left me a whole box of single-use, but still workable, flashbulbs that completely blind you but smell of old cameras in the most delicious and nostalgic way.

thank you to the mister, who took these photos of the photograph machine.

Shopping List Saturday: teeny tiny

everything's better small.

I learned my love for the little when my father built me a dollhouse. My mother bought me a tiny tiny old fashioned bathroom set--a claw-footed tub, an ancient toilet with the pull chain flusher, and a tiny pitcher and wash basin to grace the bedroom dresser. I also had a tiny grandfather clock, a tiny fireplace set, a tiny tiny set of dishes for the kitchen cabinets. My grandmother helped me decorate the house, laying down a small turkish rugs on the living room floor, hanging pale blue floral wallpaper in the kitchen, pasting paper that looked like tiny tiles on the floor of the bathroom. I was always on the lookout for teeny accessories for those six rooms. And, I guess I still am.
