Busy busy

In the last couple of weeks the leaves have started falling like crazy around here. We have a big mulberry tree in our front yard and it's been dropping big, beautiful yellow and pale green leaves on our lawn.

This month has been busier than usual. It's been quite hectic for the shop, with a dooce mention leading to a surge in sales, and more things to make for Little Otsu. Some good college friends came to visit last weekend, so I took this past Monday off and we spent the afternoon in San Francisco. The highlight was having afternoon tea at Crown & Crumpet, which had a great selection of teas, delicious scones, and super cute decor. I'm not much of a pink person, but found the jolts of hot pink here and there fun and refreshing.

I haven't been taking pictures of Charlie with it getting dark so early. But I had a few spare minutes this morning and forced her to sit through a little photo shoot. She's 6 months now and getting bigger and more mischievous, shredding paper or napkins and basically treating whatever is within her reach as a toy.

The last time I was in SF, Crown & Crumpet wasn't yet open, but I fell in love with their "Coming Soon" poster (click on my name to see my photos).

Also, Briscoe is now getting into the shredding tissue and toilet paper phase. Ugg.
