Chelsea Bus Roll

Just purchased this awesome London bus scroll on etsy. Can't wait to get it and have it hanging in our living room. Loving black and white these days, and of course love all things which were once in service and now, re-claimed, serve as art. Check out this etsy seller for more of these:


A Sick Day for Amos McGee

OK, just read this fantastic gem of a children's book today. The illustrations will make you want to cry they are so amazing and the story is a whimsical delight. This is a collaborative work by a husband and wife team, Philip C. and Erin E. Stead. Erin's art is created with woodblock printing and pencil and I hope to see many, many more books by the Steads. (Philip also wrote and illustrated "Creamed Tuna Fish & Peas on Toast"...funny with great collage style illustrations). Pick it up at the book store or of course come on up to the Children's Room and I'll read it to you!


I love this time of year...sad to see Summer go but loving the crispness Autumn brings. The "Halloween Typography" sign is available at and the "Hocus Pocus" can be purchased at: . The "October" silhouette is yours for the taking, it would be cute as an invitation or made into a small sign. And I believe "Country Living" shot the awesome black and white composition. We've been working on Halloweening our little cottage...I'll put some pics up when the last black wreath is hung.


Wedded bliss...

My brother, Sean, married his love, Kelly, yesterday. Or, should I say I married them...they asked me to officiate and I was touched and honored beyond belief. They are two of the most special people I've ever had the honor of knowing, and I wish them a lifetime of love and happiness.
