This weekend was grey and rainy again. Again.

We managed to make it feel cozy, though, instead of bizarrely unseasonal.

French press coffee from our latest thrift store find, Ginger-Rhubarb Buckle from this book, and glowing candles all over the place helped.

I finally saw this exhibit and, as I expected, I loved the prints by Hiroshige the best.

#99 of his 100 Views of Edo series was my favorite.

For me, art museums are like churches, holy places, sacred sites--repositories of beauty and knowledge and power that never fail to take away my breath.


  1. love the reflections in puddles!

  2. I completely agree about art museums. I dislike it when people don't whisper. Beautiful pictures.

  3. Love this set.
    My grandparents just got back from Japan and the art and architecture are always nothing more than stunning.
    Did you know that 400 years ago they moved a sacred castle- a whole castle? Sounds like a great exhibit!

  4. I totally know what you mean about art museums.
    At least you made your rainy weekend beautiful. I love the coffee cup in the second photograph - that's an awesome find!
