This lamp was a rental from the estate sale in Ogden for the film. It got a lot of comments from the crew and was a general favorite. We think she's from the 20's ish, she has a little light and a little machine so light and fog will come up through the top of her pot. How awesome is that!

Our family wasn't planning on dying Easter Eggs this year, but we did after all. :) Here are some pictures I took. I tried an experiment that I found on pinterest where you wrap the egg in a silk tie and dye it that way. It didn't turn out at all like theirs did, but it was fun. Lydia's eggs all turned out cooler than mine. The rewards of patience.

My Mom is a knitter and has been following some fun knitting blogs and happily discovered yarn bombing which is on the rise in the knitting community. In short is is the nicest form of vandalism possible. In sort you cover something (tree, bike rack, lamp post) with knitting. We did it to our own house with some knitted goods we picked up from the DI (refer to previous post). :)Our weapons of choice.
TA-DA!Lydia dubbed the one in the front yard "our tree-hugging cozy, making tree-hugging a comfortable experience."

I did my best and was in bed before 9 last night, but when my alarm went of at 5 I had that unmistakable feeling where you know you are at the edge of the precipice where if you push it you'll be sick the next day and if you kick back you'll squeeze by. So I took a vacation from my film volunteering (the benefit to being a volunteer). I went back to bed and got a solid 13hrs of sleep. I got some good things done like getting my car payment mailed etc, and spent some much-missed time with my Mom. We went to several DIs on a mission who's full import will be revealed later. We had uber-much success (more than idea, but it's a fun problem). We also got to hang out with Whitters which was great, and saw my aunt Liz at one of the DIs (yeah, we have a cool family). When we got home I cleaned up some of the stuff I'd got had a rest and then made some jewelry (which all worked out! It was golden, lots of times you have a great idea and it doesn't come together) and had a bath. It's been a totally lovely and needed day and now I'm staying up way too late to write this post. Here are pictures of some of the things of the day.
