I want to do better with this whole blog thing, so I'm playing around with some ideas and design and improving my photography, and just generally figuring out how to make time to do more here. So please don't mind random changes in the look of things around here, and I hope I don't get too rambly with my posts while I figure all this out.
Today I give you some random links:
Why have I never heard of this before? Art Project by Google. High-resolution images of prominent works of art from the best museums in the world. You can even walk around the galleries, Google street-view style. When I lived in Northern Virginia, I spent as many of my days off as possible visiting the museums on the National Mall and all around town. I was pleased to see that one of my favorites, the Freer Gallery, was included! Although the National Gallery is missing, which was another favorite. The Sunday night concerts there were one of my favorite D.C. events.

I think I need to start saving up for one of these bags. Is that yellow one not just perfect?
I just got this book (by this blogger/photographer/chef), and I love it. I can't wait to work on my food styling and photographing. It's a challenge, since during the week I'm not home during daylight hours long enough to spend any time taking pictures, and I do most of my eating at work. While I enjoy the spontenatity of iphone photography, I'd like to improve my regular photography (not to mention my food-stying skills, which are currently non-existent).
The first words out of my mouth when I saw this were HOLY COW. And then I bought the pattern. Three of my favorite things-quilts, knitting, and bees (or at least honeycomb), all colliding in one, enormous, clever, beautiful project. It may take the rest of my life, but I am going to start making hexipuffs whenever and wherever I can.
