It's sitting atop this piece of fabric (not sure exactly what its purpose is; it is quite wide and much bigger than, say, a tea towel), which is illustrating aspects of making tea. Both of these cool objects were given to me by my cool friend Robin.This? I bought this issue of Cotton Time for myself as I was (ahem) Christmas shopping (for myself? No, no, for other people, really!) at Mitsuwa. It came with a calendar, people, with a project a month . . . how could I possible resist? And no, I don't read Japanese, but lots of other bloggers seem to be able to figure out how to make things from Japanese craft books and magazines. I think I can, I think I can!

Why, in the Eurovan, there is a bed, where she can do this . . .
Which naturally leads to this . . .

We used to go here every Sunday for farmhouse egg tarts and ginger scones and and and . . .
Check out this weird storefront on Melrose . . . twigs? Hairballs?
And a little plumber's wrench man! Cute!

And we met a new friend (here comes the head-exploding cuteness--you have been warned).
This is Ike. He is a five-month-old chocolate Boston Terrier. Did your head explode?
How about now? Good grief!
[Edited to add: I feel that I must emphasize that my own darling girl, Miss Tallulah Mae, makes my head explode daily with her cuteness . . . just ask B., who is constantly being harangued to look at her.]

This is the view of downtown Los Angeles from our room on the first day we arrived . . .
And here is the same view on the second day.
The travelogue continues tomorrow . . .

And this gorgeous girl is Kate "Skwerly" Kitten--remember her from this post? She's about six months old now and is a little cutie-pie. Lucky kitten to wind up with Robin and James . . .
Saylor and Kate share the love . . .

This is Torpedo, whose gorgeous blue eyes are closed here. This cat is so sweet: he will follow you on your walk.
Here we have Socks, who lives at the Mission Hills Nursery with her sister Reina.

Here Tallulah and Stanley demonstrate their dog sled technique. The two of them walk along like this, side by side but rarely looking at each other. Too funny!

(A quick road trip, with Miss Mae on board, will interfere with posting on Friday. Have a good weekend, y'all!)

What's in this little felt case?
Here's a hint . . .
It's my Elph camera--I LOVE this little camera, by the way . . . it was a Christmas present from my sweetest B., so that he doesn't hear this anymore: "Darn it, I forgot the camera again." Now I always have a camera at the ready to capture life's little moments. Yay!
