In my ribbon tins I found the right ribbon for the crocheted set: a fine cotton-wool twill tape in dove grey that I bought in 2006 at Mokuba, Toronto.

(There's also the beautiful Mokuba New York)

Miss Moppet

Miss Moppet.
I'm getting the 23 little Beatrix Potter books together for the baby and The Story of Miss Moppet is yet to be included. S. reminded me of Miss M. again. She's catsitting a little wide-eyed cranker who looks much her.

We were watching Julia the other night and the next day decided it was time for salade niçoise.


These poppies in my neighbor's flower beds are just so resplendent i'm compelled to post photos of them pretty much every summer. They're more or less finished blooming now, given the rain we had this week, but i was lucky to catch them when they were in their prime.
