ice cream makes everything better

the other day capree and i were having a trip down memory lane, listening to some smashing pumpkins as we worked. suddenly there was a very child-like tune creeping in the background. knowing that this didn't fit, we looked out the window. to our astonishment, an ice cream truck was making it's way down the industrial freeway side street that we work on. what children it was expecting to find, we don't know, but we grabbed our bags without question and ran. we scraped together our change and, with a sparkle in our eyes, chose our ice cream and skipped away giggling.

cup wallet

and i have to post my all time favorite. This clever leather change purse is designed in the likeness of the iconic New York paper coffee cup. A portion of the proceeds from each purse is donated to HELP USA, an organization that has helped the homeless since 1986. my sister got this years ago and i've been jealous ever since.

i also found this and thought it was so cool. if i ever have kids, these are the blocks they're playing with.

and i would have this garden...

insanity is...

"The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. " -Benjamin Franklin... for me insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting to be satisfied or happy. i'm beginning to realize that i'm one of those people who can't do the same thing day in and day out. i can't keep interest, which i suppose could be a good or a bad thing. i feel like juliette binoche in the movie chocolat, wanting to move on whenever the wind changes. wouldn't it be lovely sometimes to just drift? to pick up and leave whenever you felt like it? maybe i just need to move to a small town in france and start up a chocolate shop.
