give thanks

tiniest clementine!!fairy door!

Okay, so maybe I'm posting too many camera phone pictures (I blame vignette) but it is awfully convenient when you've been traveling almost constantly for the last couple days - MN to MI to OH to MI and tomorrow... MN! So here's my Thanksgiving in a nutshell:

(p.s. Wondering what that tiny little doorway is at the top? Perhaps you'd like to know about the nerdily adorable obsession Ann Arbor has with FAIRY DOORS.)

white out

In case it wasn't made clear enough in the last post, on Friday afternoon it was a perfect fall day. By 1AM Saturday morning, it looked like this... (that's my boot on the ground, i realize the perspective is a little confusing).

first night of snow...

When Bryan and I decided to go to breakfast later that morning (after many z's) it looked like this, and Bryan spent a good couple minute getting the snow off his car while I huddled inside....

band together

uhhh yeah. Girl crush-o-meter has maxed out in mere days on Warpaint, I heard them twice in one day on The Current and I DIDN'T EVEN CARE. They are like girlyness embodied but in a "wearing my garter belt and playin' my guitar" sort of way. And, in case you were curious, I love the music too! "Ethereal" might be too obvious, but it's snowing like crazy outside so I can't quite think of a better way of describing it. LEMON OUT.

present tense

Sometimes I will see a link to something (music, artist, youtube video, whatever) constantly linked to on all the blogs I like... and for SOME REASON I don't click on it. Does this ever happen to you? It is a strange phenomenon that most recently manifested itself in Gifted Magazine - linked to by two of my favorites, RIFLE made and sweetfineday. Well I finally clicked on the link and was NOT disappointed, holy moly.

lots of gold? check.
cute gift ideas for everyone? check
delicious photos and whatnot? of course.

I highly recommend you page through this rockin' free online magazine from creature comforts if you like pretty, cute things.

Speaking of holiday madness (it isn't even thanksgiving yet, what's wrong with me!?!? I still have to freak out over pumpkin pie..) I created these maps of the fair Twin Cities for the MCAD Art Sale. Go buy them!
