Thank you. You already know... but Thank You. There are two books (among many) I've read that I've loved so much I wish everyone could read them: Inside Transracial Adoption by Gail Steinberg and Beth Hall, and In Their Own Voices: Transracial Adoptees Tell Their Own Stories, by Rita J. Simon and Rhonda M. Roorda. There are also a few really great blogs-- if you are at all inclined I would encourage you to seek out blogs written for or by adult adoptees and by Birth/First Moms. They can be really hard to read but it's a tough topic, right? I'm learning a lot.
Okay. Blues and greys. The stockings are from Sock Dreams and that Liberty is from the Bolt Sale two weeks ago. I know... Liberty. Gah. I've also got letterpress up the ying from the Egg Press Sample Sale last weekend with Mariko. It is a very sweet company run by one of the friendliest people I've ever met. We brought shirts and had them printed up for 5 bones a piece . I don't know if it was a profitable venture, but I gotta say that it was a brilliant idea and people were jumping all over it. I went back for a friend and brought my Target Cardigan in for two birds.
We had breakfast outside this morning! It was very grey and warm, which should be normal this time of year and would not normally precipitate outside time at 8 am. But this year has been very cold and wet (and it's coming back this week) so we were acting like it was a balmy day at the beach. That is, if the beach held a day full of promise like digging holes or sealing the fence or over-seeding the grass.
