I didn’t really want to do any doodles for Thing-A-Day, because I do a doodle every day at doodleperdiem.laurelgreen.com, but I couldn’t think up anything else to do, so, here we go, today’s thing is a doodle. I’m not
What do you think about the corner of the street sign not being straight? Too much of a distraction? I swear it was when it was stretched but, well, that’s how it goes.
Here is the new lamp all done. I’d welcome feedback, yay or nay, as to whether the brush strokes is potentially a problem for customers. It doesn’t look any more noticeable when the light is on. Unfortunately the silk
It occurred to me that in all of our neighborhood wanderings we’d never introduced you to our little neighborhood. When I moved in, my next door neighbor had lived in his house for 40 years. His daughter lived with
When life gets crazy I forget to breathe. This henna tattoo will last about a week — and remind me.
I really do hate having to throw things away so when I realised that half of a pack of croissants was really too dry to eat I just couldn’t bring myself to put them in the bin. So I went
The kitchen staff at the Hotel Garamond were justifiably proud of their reputation… it took some doing to hang on to that fourth Michelin star. So they were not pleased when patrons started complaining about the food. Turns out that
On the way out today I noticed that my neighbour had been busy. Sue takes care of our shared garden and this morning she must have been busy again preparing for spring as this planter was outside my door.
That is my today’s experiment: pancake cake. Quite delitious I would say :) Finally I’ve got to photos I was making during the whole February. I hope I’ll manage to show all stuff I was doing.
And a pinecone, the little mug is just to keep it from rolling over. I did put in effort to try and make it as accurate as possible, and it shows. Happy with this one.
I’ve no idea how it is that I’ve never made cheese straws before. They’re so simple to make and temptingly delicious. I know they look a little bit like fish fingers sprinkled with Parmesan, but trust me, they really are
Today I made crepes. Sure, they aren’t necessarily something creative, but they were delicious. :)
Saturdays are always busy days, so I only got to post today what I made yesterday. It’s these pretty Ikea fabric hearts that I made for our bedroom. I plan to hang them by the closet knobs and later make

Demonstrated slip trailing (the bumpy one), agate wear (two colors at once, the green one) and a handbuilt textured slab mug printed with one of those long dogtag chains..
Passed by these mossy sycamores on my walk to breakfast this morning. So many cool shades of green!
I spent some time down in my studio again today working on that shacks painting I previously posted about. While I was waiting for something to dry on the other piece, I pulled this one out.
Not an Odd Fellow today, but an odd fellow. Little life lesson here: never let a curious, cute 5 year old catch a glimpse of the cute amigurumi… Before you know it, you’re taking requests. This one’s for you, Ryan.
Just local walks today and the most interesting thing was next door. My new neighbor likes gnomes and the Washington football (American football) team. He placed this little guy in the hole where the real estate “for sale” sign

I used to love the Campbell’s Pepper Pot but don’t know if they still sell it. I may be hard ot find tripe. I had trouble finding a shank or any soup bone! So I used cut-up beef that is for stock.
