Double Takes

You know how that plastic from a CD gets all clingy when you peel it off just to get the case open? Henri bought this CD 2 weeks ago.

I guess that's how I managed to find the label again today, because of the clingy factor. Anyway, here it is displayed with my sea glass button. Kind of fits, don't you think?


While out thrifting today, I found this pin that looks like a wreath of roses. Then upon closer inspection, I discovered it's actually made up of little tiny sea shells. Someone had a lot of patience to arrange them like that. I've never seen shells that color here in Maine, but what a great idea for someone who has, provided you have a pair of tweezers handy.



We were so hungry today by the time we got back home that this is what we ate for dinner. Egg salad sandwiches (with a few spinach leaves).




It's kind of sad, but this was our dessert. A few dark chocolate melts and a handful of white chocolate morsels. I didn't even take the time to melt them down into candy molds.



"What are these?" asked Henri. I didn't really have a good answer, but he ate them anyway.
That's love.

Great pictures, as always! That little pin is so sweet. Question: Should I be worried about copyright infringement by having a playlist on my blog? Hubby and I are at odds about this. I love your music and that inspired me to add some to P&H. Love to know your thoughts. Thanks!

I love those little pins. We used to make them when I was a kid - lo these many years ago. You did have to use tweezers and use tiny drops of glue, and everyone had at least one pin - and sometimes some clip-on earrings. I found a pin at a thrift shop a while back - little bunches of shell roses. Just thinking about it I can smell the special glue we had to use. I wonder if someone will be bringing this craft back - very delicate and time consuming - but so clever and cute.

I love your dessert!!!! I'd eat it to. LOL

your photos of your meals even the "all we had" or perhaps especially those should be banned from the blogworld. Those of us who are likely to point to the freezer and say dinner is in there if you can find it are threatened by your magazine worthy sandwich photos and bits of chocolate let alone your brunch photos.

Don't think I am going to let my family see your blog. But then they know that my daughter puts out the same kind of things and the only thing frozen in her fridge is French bread or green peas -- Martha is her mentor...so I guess I am lost regardless....just a slacker when compared to the likes of you.

Errr could you pass those sandwiches this way please?

What a pretty pin - someone must have had so much patience to make that. I am surprised it has survived - it looks so delicate. Your lunch looks like my kind of food - I love egg sandwiches with a bit of green (in my case, usually cress).

Hi Lili ~ All is well at P&H with the music. Turns out that since I set it up through playlist.com, everything is okay....But I do SO appreciate you weighing in on the matter, because your blog is wonderful and so is the music and I assume you know what you are doing! PS: That Raspberry Royale cake was HEAVENLY. I copied the salad from a local restaurant....maybe I should try the same with the cake....mmmm! xo
