sleepless in seattle


the sleepless in seattle houseboat is up for sale and it's only 2.5million dollars. i know that seems like a lot for a houseboat, but 1. it's portable, so you can move whenever you feel like it 2. it's gorgeous 3. tom hanks lived in it 4. it was in arguably the best tom hanks/meg ryan movie ever

current dream home.

mothers' day

but... i think i can make this. this may be my mothers' day project '08, eventhough my mothers' day projects '01-'07 have still not been displayed in my mom's house. it's fine. i still like crafting.



that's artsy. subsequently, i love it.


i love these!! i want to make them so badly. i guess i just need to find a vintage bookstore or a used bookstore or something so i won't use books i actually want to read.
