Great Grandma's Pineapple Lace


A couple of months ago, my father gave me a box of my great grandmother's needlework. In it I was excited to find this bit of lace edging that she had crocheted. It is beautiful!

Sea Life - Baby Mobile


I finally finished my Sea Life Baby Mobile!

    And it couldn't have come at a better time. My baby is now 2 months old and starting to recognize his surroundings. This mobile has him mesmerized!

Sea Life - Ochre Sea Star


Here is the fourth animal for my sea life baby mobile: a pair of ochre sea stars!

Ochre sea stars are native to the California coast and come in two colors, orange and maroon. Interestingly, since they are not fish, the marine science community is trying to move away from the popular name "starfish" to the more accurate name "sea star" to describe these animals.
