laborious day

herbivory tee

i was
determined
{maybe foolishly}
to make
a dent
in my
long
to do list
over labor day.

i have been
planning
a herbivory
series
all
summer...

herbivory: oak tote

between
feeding caterpillars
i gocco-ed
in my lab.

herbivory: oak (4her)

herbivory: oak (4baby)

took me
all summer
to get to it
but...

(in etsy shop friday)

check.

i finally
dropped off
my sick
canon rebel
film camera
at the
repair shop
and
broke out
my old AE-1
i got in 1992
before my
1st trip
to europe.

felted canon strap

it had some
old film
in it
and a
disintegrated strap.
since i
am crappy
at sewing,
i felted myself
a new strap
using the
hardware
from the old strap.

new camera strap... onthego

{no more worrying
about dropping it}

check.

stop by my
favorite
new {to me}
coffee shop.

big bear cafe

uniform bag

(with the
perfect bag)

check.

take photos
for
trinoculars.

peppers

check.

there was
more
but...
well,
it's not
all done yet.

not too
bad.

what did
you do?

more
to show you
soon.

love the herbivory series. quercus!
glad you enjoyed the long weekend. we crammed as much summer into the weekend as possible: swimming, creemees, croquet and petanque, caprese salads, you name it. still, this week has felt like a real summer. mosquitoes and all. xo

Hi there, I just discovered your blog and I looooove it! I'm a fan of old cameras - still in love with my ancient Minolta.
I'll visit again soon!
