4 years

4 years ago today our friend bobbi took this picture of us in vegas. we had been married for about an hour.
my arms were thinner.
my waist was thinner.
our wallets were fatter.
still, i wouldn't go back. i like where i'm going. i like where we're going. it's not always easy, but i'm pretty sure it's not supposed to be. no trip to paris this year. that's ok. we took lots of pictures, and the ones andrew took where on slide film. we love slideshows. so tonight, we'll eat dinner by candlelight, drag out the slide projector and reminisce.
sounds pretty darn good to me.

half birthday and napkin sculptures.

please accept these digital photos of napkins. i took some polaroids, but my computer is insisting that there is no scanner installed. well there is. i can see it. i have followed the plug from the scanner, under the desk, over a bunch of cables (many of which belong to amplifiers and other things that make a lot of noise, hurt my ears and make me cry) and directly into the computer. but alas, i am tired, weak, so i will surrender. oh, and yesterday was my half birthday (silly, i know, but important to me cause it's like a birthday but your not getting a year older). it didn't go as planned. it was a stressful,recession fueled day. i solved it by taking myself to the movies to see this. please don't tell anyone, as i think i am too old and too cool to go to this movie - - alone. well, i did and i ate a kids pack and even laughed a little, and now i've told you. great. my cover is blown.

enjoy the napkins. a few more in this set.

spring cleaning

most of time if you call me when i am at home and ask me what i'm doing i will tell you that i am cleaning. i always seem to be cleaning (and andrew, too), but i am so messy that i can't seem to keep up with myself. this weekend andrew and i did some real spring cleaning. we took all of the pots and pans out of the cupboards. andrew cleaned the cupboards while i bossed him around. the usual. it felt good to get everything organized and finally find the lid to the stock pot. hooray! and when we finished, we rewarded ourselves with gin and tonics. now that's my kind of cleaning.

current inspiration

anyone who knows me, knows that i love sparkly things. i also like sheer things, lacy things, old things, tattered things, embroidered things . . . oh, and chocolate . . . i like chocolate a lot.

these things inspired me today, while i was supposed to be putting stuff away. i ended up taking more stuff out. that happens a lot. poor andrew.

pincushion doll party

1. lipslikeaheart, 2. dollparty, 3. dolldresses, 4. loosethread

another bit of jen history has been found. an obsession i had with pincushion dolls. these dolls were sent to storage after andrew moved in. i just didn't think it was fair to subject him to all of this femininity at once. now that he is talking about creating a wall of guitars in our living room, i think these little ladies can come out of hiding. our maybe i'll take them to our studio and make mini ban.dos for them.

file these under, "adorable things found while rummaging through boxes we got from storage."
apparently, i used to be a ballerina. oh, what i wouldn't give to have the matching tutu. it may be hard to tell my the photo, but they are teeny tiny.

ps. tutu is a funny word, isn't it?

one more thing. i'm here again if you are interested.
