warmth and inspiration

This spring weather just isn’t right. So. First order of business is warmth – from the inside out. What do you pull out of the cupboard on a cold morning? For me, it’s oatmeal. Reminds me of my dad who always sang “mares eat oats and does eat oats” while mom told us it would stick to our innards and keep us warm on our way to school (nine miles, uphill, in the snow – not really).

For inspiration…

New. Second from the top (why yes, art books are my addiction…well…one of my addictions)


I received this beautifully inspiring book today and plan on cuddling with it this evening along with a sketchbook, my trusty pen and pencil, and a warm cup of tea (or maybe wine. okay, probably wine).

Posted in food, inspiration.
