celebrate new beginnings!

It feels like forever since the last time I posted something here.  Junji and I have been busy busy busy.  We finally found a house and we are so excited about it.  It’s a very old house that needs a lot of cleaning and a little bit of love–but I think it is going to be awesome.  We haven’t moved in yet, but hopefully that will happen before the end of the month.  We have been going through so many changes lately, so I felt like it was time to start a new blog.  From now on I will be posting on our new blog new house projectPlease click here!! And to celebrate new beginnings I will give a special Junji pot to the first three people to post a comment on our new blog!

feels like summer

Today Junji, Saya, and I had an afternoon nap together.  We had all of the windows open, so there was a nice breeze in the house.

In our garden, later in the afternoon.  I bought this dress for Saya in Thailand–it’s perfect for hot summer days.

Saya is smiling at our upstairs neighbors.

summer dress

Here is a photo of the dress that I made for Saya.

Close up of the embroidery.

Finally, here is a picture of Saya with her daddy at the party.  Can you see the little flower in Saya’s hair?  It was her first time wearing a hair clip.  Such a big girl!

I have been trying to take some photos for the Uniform Studio Journal still life week. This is my photo for today. I found this stone at my friend Helen’s house. It is an onigiri (rice ball). I think it’s so cute.
