Collecting: Strong Box

I already knew I had a ridiculous weakness for vintage suitcases which evidently extends to old metal cases as well.


Found this heavy metal black box at the Brooklyn Flea last week and I violated the #1 rule of vintage shopping: DO NOT BRING HOME WHAT YOU HAVE NO USE FOR! Bad, bad shopper.My hoarding tendencies are showing ;)  It just looked too cool to pass up!

Now I've done it, what should I use it for?  I could use it to store supplies but it seems a shame to put it in closet.

Just a Moment: Monkeys

Lately I've been terrible about working on my photography skills. Either I don't bother to bring my camera with me or I never get it out of the diaper bag. My smart phone is just too easy to fall back on but its not the same. Obviously I'm working on my toddler catching technique more than ever (and failing miserably most of the time) but I miss practicing photography on other subjects as well. I definitely feel rusty so I'm going to try to make a point of shooting more in general.


With that in mind, my only decent photo from this weekend is two random zoo monkeys. Maybe their judgmental glares will get me motivated to do better?

The Easiest Easter Eggs

Ok so maybe I never got around to an elaborate egg dying and decorating project this year.  Instead I spent 3 minutes stamping some hard boiled brown eggs I had in the fridge.  Now if only I was able to come up with a more clever celebratory phrase.

I still have a few unstamped eggs if you have sarcastic/funny/sweet suggestions for me.

Hoppy Easter!
