outside : inside

this theme, widespread across the blogosphere but likely made popular by soulemama, is especially poignant come winter. it has something to do with the stark beauty out-of-doors contrasted with the affability of domestic life, cozy and familiar.

outside:

just beginning.

wonderland.

simple pleasures.

she wears winter well.


and in:

face for radio.

serious competition.

delish.

in yellow.

canvases everywhere.

elle and i spent the morning traipsing about in the snow. she loves shuffling through the banks and drifts, how her knees disappear completely.

indoors meant bowls of gnocchi soup, a harrowing round of monopoly deal with my boys, sunshiney fabric, and another five minute skirt**.

joy everywhere.



**which, of course, took ten minutes at the least since i hail from the school of Topstitch or Perish. regardless, the yellow is all-out lovely.

That fabric is dreamy! I'll bet you have some big plans for it...

The soup looks pretty great, too.

Fun Saturday to you!
