i discovered a hummingbird nest right outside our front door. it is the most amazing thing ever! it's so small and cute. i keep checking on it all the time. today mama bird was out of the nest a lot. sitting right next to it. but she didn't really leave it. i don't want to check and see if there are any eggs in it because i don't want to wreck it. so i don't know if the eggs are there, if they are going to be there or if she's scoping out the scene and will be mad that i'm always looking at her. there's a male bird that hovers around occasionally and it looked like today he brought a snack to the female.
i was trying to point it out to the little - she LOVES birds... and i think she spied it... we'll see if she remembers it tomorrow.
and now - things that i'm coveting.... just because....
japanese sugar molds [kashiga]
this one is courtesy of this etsy shop. i can't remember where i first spied these, but i'm totally smitten. i really like the plainer more abstract ones - or the simple floral ones like this
i need another camera like i need a.... hole in my head?? yeah. but i do want this one. digital. toy. japan. takes videos. need i say more? go look at what it can do here's a flickr group .
i think freestylephoto has the best price i've found....
i got this scarf for hubby's mom for mother's day. martha is a genius. see her store for yourself.
someday i will get a camera strap made by erin. 1. because they are beautiful. 2. because i hate my boring black camera strap with NIKON plastered all over it 3. because i never will get around to making my own. 4. because even if i did make my own it wouldn't turn out as nice.
but you have to be quick because they sell out of her shop fast !
i got a new piece of equipment for the studio today. but i didn't have enough time to set it up. hopefully i can get it running in the next few days. i'm so excited about it. but i'm not saying anything else. not yet.....
have a great week!
