Last year we got this sweater for N. on sale at J. Crew. It may not look like anything special, but it is really warm and comfortable, so though we bought it for him, a tug-of-war ensued. He would come home to find me wearing it and I would keep it on until he started to complain too loudly about being cold. But all's well that ends well (for me!). We just bought N. a new sweater this weekend and this sweater is now mine!

Spent Sunday painting Mexican-style skulls for Dia de los Muertos. Michael's had these paper skulls on sale last week so we bought a bunch and my mom printed off images from the internet to use as reference. Good times.
I'll post pictures of everyone else's skulls when I get them from my mom's camera.

This is the real reason I went to the Botanical Garden--the moss area in the Japanese garden. I would love to have a yard covered in moss someday because it's pretty, clean, and doesn't need to be mowed.
Instead, I made myself a moss terrarium in a mason jar.

I guess this is a pretty traditional English style greenhouse with lots of tropical plants but all that green on the ground is Baby's Tears, which I love. It makes me think of the apartment greenhouse in the movie Green Card--not a great movie, but the greenhouse is so beautiful that it's worth watching just to see it.
at the gorgeous Missouri Botanical Garden because they have free morning hours on Wednesdays and Saturdays. I have many photographs to share, but the first are these crazy mums--at least I'm pretty sure they're mums judging by the shapes of the leaves and the styles of the flowers.
