A favorite little spot in my home. This is in our kitchen (and before I post one more picture of WHITE walls I must tell you that we rent. And even though we've been here for so long, I have zero desire to paint *someone elses* house. So white it is.). Anyway...the top picture is mine from kindergarden, and is quite telling of my temperment as a child--as precise as can be, and as 'normal' and happy as I could muster. Interesting. Calvin's, below is one of my favorites. It's a drawing he did when he was 3, of me on Christmas morning (when we host a brunch). You can see I'm wearing a chef's hat and apron (I didn't wear the hat, by the way), and flying all around me are kitchen utensils. There's a crazed look in my eye. I love, love, love this--so accurately captured! And above the two pictures is a bottle opener in the shape of a woman. I know, it's a bit strange, but a friend of ours bought it for Steve in Bulgaria, and somehow it's become a bit of a taliswoman of wherever we live--it's literally one of the first things that go into a house when we move in, and gets hung in this bizarre fashion. Don't ask--it doesn't make sense.
