I can appreciate the atmospheric quality of Emily Winfield Martin's illustrations.  She has a great shop ( you may recognize her as The Black Apple )... might want to hop over there and peruse for a while.  Solid sweetness.

Into the Weekend

At this very moment I'm beginning to feel sleepy from a rather intense week. But I'm about to head out to join friends for a festive music shindig downtown.  Think fifteen people on stage playing upright bass, drums, guitar, accordion, and on and on.  It'll be fun.  And tomorrow night... more holiday action.  I will be pleasantly exhausted come Monday morning, I'm sure.

Must remember.

Happy weekend, friends.

Holiday Gift Wrapping!

Anyhow, it's gettin' to that time when I buy gifts for the sole purpose of getting to decorate them all pretty-like, like these...
