Thursday Morning Things
My first effort at a herringbone braid on Cordelia. She managed to sit mostly still through the process so it felt like a win. When she saw the picture she said, "So, it's like a normal braid?" Here is a little tutorial if you want to try it.
I am trying to decide if I should return to caffeine. I gave it up over five years ago while pregnant with Cordelia. It was hard! Through nursing and knowing that I was planning a second pregnancy I never went back. Now I am in a position to make a choice. To caffeinate or not to caffeinate that is the question.
My morning manatea. Surprisingly the cup was a thrift store find and was made by a well-known regional artist! You may recall last week when I was gifted with a manatee tea infuser. Coincidentally my second cousin Anne had picked up the same thing for me! So now I have a pair and I am planning to paint one a little bow and the other may give the other a monocle and mustache. If you need one, and how could you possibly live without, they can be found here.
This wooden fox was a major score at Target. I found it sitting on the clearance endcap for the whopping price of $1.63. I love a good bargain so much that I feel like I need to shout it from the rooftops, or at least post it here on my blog. I wish I could link to the fox, but I couldn't find it any longer so it must be out of stock.
I really love air plants. Are you with me? I once traveled with one in a suitcase from Arizona to Wyoming, I still have her to this day. I give them a bath once a week, sometimes twice if I am feeling crazy. I let them soak in a bit of fertilizer once a month. They are so easy to care for and their shapes just inspire me.
