October 30, 2015
This week's finds:
Sweden in the fall.
What chefs feed their children for lunch.
A new 'Hansel & Gretel' from one of my favorite artists.
LOVE this photo series.
I'm reading this book right now, a more modern spin on 'Jane Eyre'. It's fab, especially at this time of year.
Cute little Halloween leaf craft, if you have any extra time tomorrow.
The best pumpkin pie recipe ever? (love the spiced crust idea)
And ANOTHER reason I need to go to Japan!
I've been eyeing playsilks since Julia was a toddler. She just asked for some for Christmas. I think I should just go for it.
Cool Book of the Week: Well, I thought I'd break from the witches and throw in a ghost. 'Gus Was a Friendly Ghost' by Jane Thayer and Seymour Fleishman. I know I've gone on record here before, saying that 'Gus and the Baby Ghost' is one of my favorite picture books of all time, at ANY time of year - it was my favorite book when I was 5 years old and I still have my copy. I'll probably always talk about that book here on the blog from time to time. It took me a long while to realize there was a whole series of Gus books, starting with this one. The sweetest, the friendliest - Gus is little ghost I wanted to have for a best friend! And I'm not alone - people talk about the Gus books in terms like "family heirloom", they love these books so much. I really need to make a master list of which books I talk about in these posts; I feel like I might have linked to this one a few years ago....oh well. It bears repeating.
kabocha squash pie. I'm totes excited. Yes, I use the word totes now, which I also think I mentioned before. IRONICALLY, peoples. But really, it's fun, it grows on you, it totes does....
