four things i love this week...

This week inadvertently sort of turned into Girl Power Week!
My favorite thing this week is these four amazingly talented, creative, and artistic



All She Talks About
from Kirsten Spruch on Vimeo.

She's 13!



Carly Paige is 12! Click on image to see video of her song
"Just Imagine: A Beatles Tribute"

3. Chrissie White, 16-year-old photographer. I think her
photography has a maturity beyond her years. Some of her very staged work has an
almost Tim Walker quality about it.

4. Olivia Bee, high school student, photographer
extraordinaire. I love looking through her flickr pool cuz it ranges from "hey,
i'm just a crazy high school kid doing high school kid stuff" to really serious,
emotional, planned out photographs.

Seriously. When I was their age (I feel so old when I say
things like that!), I had nothing on my mind beyond
horsesboyshorsesboyshorsesboys. I really admire people who have a passion from
an early age and really focus on it and hone their craft.

taking a little time off

i managed to get a little ahead of myself with my ebay work, so i took a day off today...

it was a beautiful january day, sunny w strong blue skies

caleb had to check out the yards...

as nice as it would have been to stay around the apartment all day in my nightie...

janey was not happy we were leaving her behind....

i was leaving behind some messes...they'll still be there tomorrow

we were out all day...Madison found a new perch while we were gone

I splurged and bought myself flowers...

the day wiped Caleb out

I got a lovely brie and onion tart for dinner...

i did a little thrifting. found two wonderful 50s/60s cocktail/prom dresses

and finally after dinner i got back to work...with janey glaring at me from above...
