Miscellaneous wooden puzzle pieces that were in a 99cent thriftshop bag--the pieces lost their puzzle, but the shapes and pictures create something pretty interesting.

in Cloquet, MN

Found these happy accidents in Cloquet, Minnesota.

Also in Cloquet is the R.W. Lindholm Service Station (1958) derived by Frank Lloyd Wright as part of his Broadacre City project.

This matryoshka doll has one of my all-time favorite labels. Plus a glimpse into my mom's studio. For more cupies and cute.

sauna +sea

It was bit sauna like today--which is okay when in a sauna or by the sea. I just ran across my photos from when I was in Malmö Sweden––a couple years back. This sauna adventure was amongst my favorite. I don't think there's anything quite like this in the US.

The sea wood and gulls are from Maine——which i'll be heading to in a couple weeks.

shapes, colors and numbers

Oh Number Experiences! This educational 'game' is filled with shape and color goodness——peagreen, orange and turquoise shapes, spinners, loads of game boards, plus a super intense 60+ page teacher's guide'. Kit A teaches children how to classify, organize, stack, and order—— even Venn diagramming is covered (whoah!). At this point, Hazel and I are letting intuition and play take command; perhaps I'll tackle the instructions at a later date. Thanks Jen for spotting this on our sister thrift excursion. I wonder what Kit B, C, D have to offer?

misc. sky+signs

From miscellaneos excursions to Connecticut, Norhtern MN, Mexico, Copenhagen and on the Skyway in I N D I A N A! Just longing for travel-time and a little less work.
