new animals at provide

there is a new batch of animals over at provide . this little beaver is there along with a few others. have a look at their blog for more photos of what is available.

provide is one of my favorite home stores in vancouver. each time i am there i find something new to obsess over. on this visit i became the proud owner of a long-yearned for fog linen tray.

i am also seriously needing (okay, wanting) a log bowl from loyal loot. again, after coveting them online for a few years, it is really nice to be able to see them in person. i loved the aqua one. and the grey one. and of course the mustard. once we do the big move in a few weeks (more on that another day) i will start saving my pennies for one.

ein, zwei, die!

if you are looking for a fun movie to watch this weekend, and you don't mind some gore or subtitles, you must see dead snow. i've watched it twice in 3 days. it is definitely the best zombie movie i've seen in a long, long time. so entertaining! (i've loved horror movies since i was a little kid, they are a nice contrast now to drinking decaf tea and making animals and quilts.)

a norwegian film, it's about a group of medical students on holiday in the mountains (stunning!) and they anger and are confronted by...wait for it.....nazi zombies!!!! i jumped a couple of times, it made me laugh and it's very bloody. i loved the effects and i thought the contrast between the blood and snow looked really fantastic. plus i loved all of the fair isle sweaters and headbands. thank you norway!

check out the trailer here.

on repeat (in my mind)

this song has been playing over and over in my mind since i heard it again last week. which is fine because i've always liked this song, but c'mon. a week is a bit much.
does this ever happen to you?

i love this wool i've been holding onto to. i have some new animals in mind that i would like to make patterns for but i haven't had any time. i've been working on store orders and working at other jobs, i haven't even updated my own shop in quite some time. i hope to do that soon.

also, i've apparently taken a wee blogging break. oh well. these things happen sometimes. it amazing how many other things i've been getting done while not glued to my computer. i need to find a nice balance between the two, because i miss reading and commenting on the blogs i follow.
