happy international museum day!

happy international museum day! never heard of it? yeah, me either and i live in dc where there are, like, a gazillion museums. despite being drug from museum to museum as a child, spending hour after hour viewing crusty, dusty artifacts, i still like visiting my local cultural institutions: i just limit my visit to an hour. one can be very spoiled here in the nation's capitol as most museums here are free...i am always taken aback when visiting other cities when i have to shell out $20 or so for a little go-see, cuz i never have any cash: thank god for the plastica!

cracking the code

my head is spinning and my eyes are blurry after four days of html5 code webinars. there are so many brackets, commas, weird words and did i mention the brackets? although i am at the beginning, it seems really non-intuitive and confusing...i am sure i will get it at some point! i figure i spend so much time on the computer, i should learn how it actually works, and maybe do something really cool: im not sure what that would be, but i am sure it will be really cool! besides, this code lesson has been given to me (and others) free of charge through etsy. so, i continue to plug away.

crystal chandelier reception

thanks to everyone who came to last night's reception for the illumination exhibition: it was so great! my chandelier-windchimes will be on display for a few months, so if you missed the opening, stop by on some balmy day/night and take a peek!

i like being thrifty!

this week's vintage shopping yielded a few treasures: i love the coordinating green vases: one is stamped 'haeger'...

another globe for my vast collection...

a tin lunch box shaped like an old time-y television showing 'i dream of jeanie'...
an alessi toothpick holder for 3 bucks...
spent $30 on everything.
