the bamboo wood

Apparently, this is the little 
that Monet rowed out in to 
capture his water lilies in all their glory.

Thursday Challenge—"hard"

Mom and Dad were having fun, but their little girl
was still pretty unsteady on her blades.  My
father first brought me here to the Rockefeller Center 
rink when I was 4 years old, and I quickly learned two things:
Ice-skating is hard—and so is that ice!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends—

ABC Wednesday—T is for "tiles"

This beautiful floor belongs to
Veniero's Pasticceria, which is not in Italy
(though you might think so), but rather on the
Lower East Side of Manhattan. I told 

you all about it last month.

If it's eucalyptus, it must be November

I love the folks who come to our local

greenmarket with flowers from their farm. 
It starts with daffodils and tulips in
April and ends with dried arrangements and huge 
bunches of eucalyptus—like the one this guy
has just bought—into November.

Look out! Be careful! Watch where you're going!

I'm making fun of where they put their little 
feel-good sticker, but the folks at the
Love Yourself Project are doing some good 
workespecially with kids and art.

Today's Flowers?

My new work space is right next to the 

food editors at another magazine, Family Circle
This showed up last week, so I went over to
admire the pretty orchid—and then . . .

someone cut into it!

This Paris church is relatively young—it was
built in the neogothic style and completed
in 1903.  I've featured it here before.
