Life lately.

It's been a while...
 the swings- always the swings!
I love her love
a "walking stick" bug
a visit from grandparents..
a Brooklyn wedding
a visit with old friends..
I decided the sinks had to go and planted some new pots for the front porch
she is never this still..
taking a pottery class. loving getting my hands dirty again..
she was bummed that I couldn't put the stick back together again..

My friend Sian has a new book out about how to make some of the darling stuffed animals that she makes so effortlessly. The instructions are clearly written and are accompanied by her sweet illustrations.
PLUS... there is a tiny Veda featured on a few pages to showcase some of the projects!

The book was shot by the talented Jen Korff. See more outtakes here..

Yesterday we visited a beautiful farm about an hour from home. They had all sorts of animals and games and a few rides (ponies and wagons). We went with our close friends, Isaac and Maggie and their little one, Lily (Veda's bestie). The farm was huge and you could hitch rides on a hay wagon from one garden to another to pick to your hearts content. We picked gorgeous bouquets of flowers as well as our pumpkins for the season. The girls ran wild and got filthy and had a good old time. It was a perfect afternoon..
