randoms


I know I've mentioned this before, but Brian and I have annual passes to the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village in Dearborn. I really (really!) love the village, but it's closed this time of year, so in the winter we go to the Museum. I like it when it gets later in the day and all the kids on their field trips go home so I can do things like this and not feel completely ridiculous (just a little ridiculous):


Yep, that's me. A hot dog. A Wienermobile was right next to this little ingenious photo-op, but silly me didn't get a shot of it.

One of my favorite things at the museum is the Dymaxion House. It's crazy to think how different the suburbs might look if these houses had actually gotten manufactured.
Other randoms:
- Check out this yarn. Yum!
- And check out this etsy shop,
Thrush. It's full of fabulous vintage clothing and other goodies. I love how she names the items.
- I love this rag rug tutorial from Moda Bake Shop.
- Oh! An update on the cloth pads: Awesome. They worked really well and were super absorbent and really comfy. I had no issues with bunching or sliding around. At first I was rinsing them out in the shower, but it took a while and the cold water was torture, so I started filling up the sink with cold water and letting them soak for a while in there first, which helped a lot. Once rinsed, I put them in a glass jar filled with water until all of them were used so I could wash them all together. When I buy/make more I think I'll rig something else up for storage. I felt pretty weird saving them, which is normal I guess when you start saving something you're used to throwing away.
My favorite one was the "medium" size from gogreengirl. It fit really well. The liners seemed a bit overkill, a little too thick for me. I think I'll try making my own liners. Anyone know where I can find organic, undyed/unbleached cotton flannel?
