This time of year I begin racking my brain about Christmas. Do I really need anything? What would make me happy to receive? There are always little things that I never deem acceptable to spend money on. Socks, kitchen gadgets and non-thrifted basics all fall into this category. Then there's things I simply can't afford. Leather shoes, a sewing machine. It's difficult to find a balance around this season between "I want I want I want", and "don't give me anything because I have too much stuff". For me it has become a thoughtful reflection of the qualities that give me happiness. Comfort, warmth, and the ability to create.

lately i'm obsessed with the arctic- watching bbc's frozen planet, drawing deers and bears and seals. i'm researching scandinavian and laplander folk art, native alaskan motifs and baltic costume.
i'm painting all manner of blubbery beasts and frozen water.

Amazing find at the thrift store this week- beautiful vintage American-made dishes in a complete set. I only got two dinner plates, two saucers and one serving platter, as some pieces were chipped or stained, but I am so in love with the pattern. There was no bowls or teacups, maybe eBay?
"Spotted" a Fly Agaric or amanita muscaria while out looking for chanterelles yesterday. Seems like we found every northwest mushroom except chanterelles. But no matter, had lots of fun looking.
Common puffballs. Should have collected some for dinner, we found tons!

Drove out the Mt. Baker hwy about an hour up the mountain to camp on the North Fork of the Nooksack river, just outside Glacier. Absolutely perfect weather, glorious sunset, almost-full moon. The light was perfect all evening and I couldn't put my camera down. I took 400 photos in 1 day! These are my favorites.
