This little guy was a stencil I saw downtown seattle on one of my walks. It was only about 6 inches tall.
Tracy found this in Portland on a recent trip and HAD to have it (it was a killer deal...we think the store owner was high or something). Not really sure what to do with it now, but Tracy is beyond thrilled.
I couldn't believe it when I received an email from one of my favorite artists (janne robberstad) that I had won something! I never win anything...in fact it is so bad that Tracy won't even let me stand by him in las vegas because it's clear that I change his luck. So this was exciting. Included was a Janne designed mousepad, mirror, music, self adhesive velvet trim, an embroidered face that I will certainly incorporate into something, hand printed papers and more! and it all came from norway!
So I know that I have a food blog and I should have posted this there, but I have more readers here. ;-) I am just CRAZY about this new bean company Rancho Gordo (well, new to me). The beans are out of this world, easy to cook and delicious in so many recipes. Here, I just made a miropaux of carrot, celery, onion and garlic, sauteed in olive oil and then cooked with the beans for a couple hours. Everyone needs to eat more beans and this guy is the one to buy them from.
