it was a sound like a great white river

So, living in Washington State, I have been aware of the One Square Inch project prior to now, but I recently stumbled upon this new blog called, A New Fucking Wilderness. They have a blurb about the project, and so I thought I would follow suit. I plan on hiking up the hoh river trail in a few weeks and will let you know what sort of quiet I experience. There is so much moss all over the Olympics, that very often everything is quite muffled anyway, but I will investigate the special square inch and report on any out of body experiences. I think its very impressive that the local airlines have agreed not to fly over the park.

And as long as we're on the environmental art kick, here is another great site, Ecoarttech. A lot of helpful links and curious posts.

Sunday Love

It was such a beautiful day in Tacoma! Sunshine and summer... I spent the day in the garden, planted tomatos, lettuce, eggplants, pole beans and sugar peas... will post progress photos soon I hope!

In the meantime check out this amazing collection of prints amd jewelry at one of my favorite studios, Piano Nobile. Love it!

And what's for supper?

Let's start with desert, this beautiful spring cupcake via Cupcakes Take the Cake...
From New York's Magnolia Bakery, here is the recipe.

Okay, and dinner... I found this site via A Cup of Jo (which is a lovely blog, and I am jealous of her blogging skill!) But, here is the site, its called Sunday Suppers. Really gorgeous photos and all of the recipes make me want to put on my apron asap!

enjoy :)
