easter sunday

Decided to go on a little walk down to the beach. Here are some photos I took on my iPhone.

Creepy faces. I took a rest right below and didn't see them until I stood up.
Fun fort.
I'm not the only one here.
Shells and rotten seaweed. Stinky.
The big sky.
Driftwood wall.
The stairs that lead up. Kind of medieval.

Christmas evening was spent making lussekatter (Swedish saffron buns). They didn't turn out as delicious as expected but still fun to make.

Crushing the saffron with a poor man's mortar and pestle (yep, that's a wine corker):

Warm butter and milk:

Mix with yeast:

Add other fun ingredients:

Stir until all doughy:

Let rise, then punch:

Roll into s-shaped buns and let rise again:

Right outta the oven:


My inspiration (haha):

So I might have lied about blogging again. Just not in the mood, but not giving up just yet.

It's been a few years since this movie came out, but I just got around to seeing it recently. It's quite interesting and has such beautiful imagery.

This photo is one of my favorites from Diane Arbus -- Lady Bartender at Home with Souvenir Dog.

I'm ready to get my posts going again; I've found a new job so I feel less guilty about tending to the blog. And after spending so much time at home this last month, I really want to find ways to make the house a little more "me" and less of the "no use unpacking" feel. These two spaces are very inspirational for what I'm wanting to achieve.
