New Look

It's about time for a new look, I think. This one is temporary (obviously, since we won't want to be looking at a skiier in April), but it comes from a tea towel Todd's mom gave us for Christmas. She used it to wrap a gift in the Japanese fashion I love so much. Why don't we do use cloth to wrap gifts more often? It's economical, ecological, and just plain pretty.

I love the print on this towel. Sort of retro and way too cute to actually use for wiping dishes or hands or anything that might soil it. And that skiier who's headed straight down the mountain looks a bit distressed to me, so it sort of fits the almost-name of the blog, too.

Here's the old banner, just for posterity's sake:

  3. I actually used fabric and trim over the weekend to wrap a present for my daughter's friend's birthday! It was fun to do so - ethical and cheap, not to mention pretty. :)
