flax-golden tales: backyard uprising

backyard uprising I help the guy next door with his garden sometimes. He gives me a few dollars a week to keep the flowers watered and stuff like that. I offered to trim the hedge but he says he likes to keep it like that to camouflage his workshop. He builds these, I don’t know, […]

fountain pen number two

Remember back in March when I got my very first vintage fountain pen? I’ve been trolling Etsy vintage for pens since then (well, pens & train cases & bowler hats,) but nothing’s really caught my eye & budget at the same time until this past week. So now I have a second vintage fountain pen.  […]

flax-golden tales: unexpected delivery service

unexpected delivery service They always show up at the right time, even though they are most often unexpected. They always know precisely the right thing to bring. Chocolates or caramels or skeins of technicolor yarn. Glass bottles of cherry-flavored soda. Long stems of bright blooming flowers. They do not tell you who your gift is […]

cake & kitten

Other than the fact that I am still coughing, after over a month of lingering chest cold, this weekend was lovely and springy. Not really knowing what to do with myself now that I am out of Revisionland for the moment, I thought I would bake muffins. But then I couldn’t find poppy seeds and […]

flax-golden tales: secret wishes of stuffed tigers

secret wishes of stuffed tigers The kids that play outside make fun of the tiger in the window simply because it is there, and thus fodder for amusement. Stupid fluffy baby toy. And the tiger cannot move from the window, so it is forced to watch and listen. It accepts their taunts with unblinking plastic […]
