Working by the light of the owl

owl lamp

Finally picked out a shade to go with the awesome lamp my sister got me for Christmas. It sits next to my cutting table and sheds the perfect amount of light onto my work space, where I’ve been working all evening on a project I can’t share just yet.

This weekend is Gasparilla, an annual Tampa event that entails pirates “invading” the city and a Mardi Gras-esque parade complete with beads and lots of really, really drunk people. Luckily, it’s walking distance from our home, so we can check it out without worrying about driving or parking. I moved to Tampa this weekend last year, so I’ve yet to experience the drunken joy that is Gasparilla.

    HOW FUNNY that I would ‘stumble’ upon your blog today of all days. I’m from North Missouri, and a total pirate nerd. I went to Gasparilla last year with a friend and am so sad to be missing it this year. It’s AWESOME!!! HAVE FUN!!
