Amazing. Hoping they come to Minneapolis soon.

Tiny spaces

I’m so fascinated by people who can live in such well designed  small spaces (after a certain age). It’s been years since I’ve been able to fit all my belongs in one room (college/living with roommates). I imagine you have to really love everything you have since there is such limited amounts of space.

Thinking of spring dresses for my little one

I’m not sure why it took me forever to finally watch The Hour since it had been on my radar since I found out Ben Whishaw (my imaginary British boyfriend) was going to play one of the main characters. In December, Chris and I burned through the first season in one week and basically did the same when the second season was available in January. It had all my favorite elements that I look for in a drama; well written three dimensional characters, great costumes/sets, unrequited love, conspiracies, and storylines woven into historical events. Ben was amazing as Freddie Lyon and the rest of the cast were wonderful as well. Shockingly though, last month, the BBC announced that it had not renewed the series for a 3rd season. It was such a shame since the ending of the second season was a major cliffhanger. Sigh…I’ll never know what will happen to Bel and Freddie. I’d like to imagine that they finally get together and raise tiny journalist babies.

Isak ProductsI’ve been seeing a lot of their trays in the backgrounds of a couple of the instagram feeds that I follow. I’m glad I finally found the designer. So much whimsy! Here’s a few of my favorites.

Happy Friday!


Here’s another practice watercolor for you to enjoy. I used a photo from Steffy’s Pros and Cons’s post called “Wild Wild Horses” for reference. I didn’t draw the image exactly but wanted to use her expression and hair to practice.


Not too bad for an earworm. I’ve been waking up with this in my head the last couple of days. Good stuff.
