Little Chocolate Donuts and Sweet Vintage Finds



I snatched these up at a yard sale today--my last chance to grab some vintage-y containers to display my work at the Melrose Victorian Fair this Sunday. Hopefully those two pieces of wood will be paintings by Sunday and that sweet "Booth's Sliced Pineapples" crate will house all the prints I need to print, sign, and package in the next 36 hours. (And I think there's some vintage soup that needs to be washed out of those bowls--yikes.)

But before that, I'll be running my FIRST 5K TOMORROW MORNING! I was doing fine, not nervous or anything, until last night I bit it hard while running on my town's ridiculously uneven sidewalks in the dark. So tomorrow I'll be sporting my new running shorts and two bloody knees---awesome.

Hudson will be doing the kids .25mile run. He's psyched. He got new running shoes for the occasion and has since then, often tearfully, INSISTED on wearing them every day. "(with great emotion) I NEED to run EVERY DAY, mom, not just some days EVERY DAY!" he tells me.

In preparation you can bet I'll be following the wise advice of the late great John Belushi....

Congrats on the 5K! Hope you'll write about it and how it went. (And don't EVEN get me started on the sidewalks around here... it's a miracle that everyone in this town isn't walking around with bloody knees, sheesh!)

Holy crap, I love John Belushi. First I love lamp, now this! I think if we lived near each other, we'd pretty much have to be friends. :)

Hey Jenny--you're from Cincy? Do you know my sister, Andrea. That sounds funny, but no really, do you know her? If not, you should. She's like me only cooler and in your same town.
