Hi everyone... sorry for the long pause...

Among other things, my husband and I have moved to our new place in Cambridge and have spent almost all of May cleaning, painting, carrying stuff, moving, and decorating. It's been tough, but oh-so-rewarding. It's funny how quickly we started calling the new place - home.

In the spirit of new beginnings, I have started a herb garden - well, it's a bunch of different herbs in different pots sitting on our windows, but it looks very promising. All the seeds have sprouted - some faster than others, and I'm hopeful that in a few weeks there will be fresh parsley and basil for my salads.

I've also planted chamomile and thyme. The only thing missing is mint, but since it's a very tricky herb to plant from seed, I've started searching for potted mint at stores and supermarkets. No luck so far...

Anyways, I just wanted to share this and leave you with a pretty picture of wall decals I think I want to see on our new walls.

I'll post some photos of the apartment as soon as I find my camera :)

Purple Butterfly

This is one of my new purple butterflies.
It's made from purple card stock, white ink, white gel pen, and crystal jewel accents.

Happy Weekend!
