a moment free
to update
my poor
neglected
blog...
so
finally

. . . . .

on the trip
i wanted to
take a lot
of photos
on drive...

but we
were in
such a rush...



we did stop
at this cute
1950s
pizza place

in
columbus, ohio
on the way home.
yesterday afternoon.



i came home
to a lovely
package
from lisa s....

with these
perfect prizes
just for me!

i am always
awestruck
by all
the beautiful
art and craft
she does...
just amazing!

Thank you for sharing the photos from your trip, a bug conference oohh. Lisa's package looks beautiful and that bird print is just super cute!

Thank you so much for those photos of Tommy's Pizza. Fabulous.
They reminded me of a real period-piece pizza place (a PPPP) I was taken to in Baton Rouge a few years ago (when I was kicking myself that I didn't have my camera on me)
Now I can't even remember the name of it.
Hope you had a good conference.

So how was the Pizza of Perfection??? That place looks like so many of the South Jersey pizza joints we frequented growing up. YUM.

hannah said...

oooh gwen, put me down for the glasbake bottle and cup if no one has spoken up yet. so glad you had a good trip, although i find that conferences are never as much of vacation as i would like for them to be!

Lovely pics, you make indianapolis look so poetic. As a bug outsider, I have to say - a big bug geek fest sounds kind of fun :)

julie said...
