Albany Excursion

Last week I spent a day in Albany, hanging out with my moms and spent a little time at the Empire State Plaza, which is actually a cool place to explore - I hadn't been downtown in a long time and it was a prefect sunny day!

The Egg
The Capitol

Corning Tower

I also spent some time in my mom's garage - seriously trying to figure out how I can get this huge, homemade tool cabinet thing back to Boston before she sells the house. It was there when they bought it and I've always wanted it, and I can have it IF I can figure out how to transport it and get it up my switchback stairs.

I have to have it. Beautiful pulls, crackly patina, label holders, and it's GRAY - !

Labor Day Report

Friends of mine have been finding all sorts of delicious wild mushrooms this summer, and I've been a little jealous so I jumped at the chance to go with them on a Mushroom Walk hosted by the Trustees of Reservations.

I found three edible mushrooms, but only this one was tasty. There are SO MANY DEADLY mushrooms out there - really a murderer's paradise! Right now this is the only one I'm not afraid to eat because it doesn't have any lookalikes.

Foraging is totally fun, and I'm excited to learn more, but it's easy to get over ambitious and nearly poison yourself and friends by thinking horse chestnuts were edible...sorry B & M!!!

I also got three BIG batches of arrows going to replenish my sadly empty shop! I also figured out how to add a mailing list - so sign up to be notified when they're done!
