thankful + an interview

berries

our wedding in tahoe was really lovely. it's so nice to watch two people so genuinely in love tie the knot.

we also spotted a bear. a big black bear. i've never been that close to a bear outside of a zoo. we are such city people it's kind of funny.

shot the above winter berries. will i ever tire of this type of shot? i have to say no. it's on repeat in my mind. and i love when other people do it too. shari does it really well .

happy thanksgiving everyone!

tomorrow is gobble gobble day here in the states. i'm in charge of the meal. i'm going traditional. turkey, cranberry sauce [of course!], peach stuffing, brussels sprouts, yam mashed potatoes, pomegranate and persimmon salad, gingerbread cookies w/ pumpkin ice cream for dessert.

i even made a floral arrangement. [my martha moment]. it's in a pedestal piece my grandmother gave me. the candlesticks are hers too. the table cloth i'll use tomorrow and the dishes will also be from her. i'm happy that she will be part of our meal.

if you are in the states i hope you have a lovely holiday. i think i'll be taking the rest of the week off from the internets. i have plenty of cleaning, cooking, and packaging of stuffs to do. but before i go....

new project

ever since completing drawing a day i have wanted to do another "project". i have figured one out. a domestic life. more on this soon.

and finally...... ez , and her partner in crime melissa asked me some really great questions. i'm the guest for tea over here today. if you check it out you can see a picture of a very small lisa....

see you next week!

I've enjoyed reading your interview, getting to know you a little better. I've seen you've put Spain in your wish list, Well... if you ever make it to Spain, make sure there's a stop in Bilbao; I'll show you around...

Your gramma's pieces look fantastic in your table and is the perfect tribute. Enjoy your thanksgiving!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving sweet Lisa, your menu made me hungry instantly (and it's 4.30 pm and I only had espresso filled candy for lunch...never a good idea). What a beautiful way to make your grandma part of the festivities.
Lots of hugs...
