Ooh, saving this photo by Sherry and John Petersik for inspiration for a future art project:

I still have lots of leftover paper strips from a paper chain Christmas ornament project. The framed art on the right side of the photo above would be perfect to use some up!

November Noms: Dark Chocolate Mousse

The other night, Mr. E made dark chocolate mousse:

Dark Choc Mousse

Dark, very rich, almost bitter. It was fine in its own, but I discovered that my vanilla lactose-free yogurt which I think is a little too sweet pairs with the mousse perfectly. Yum! :)

Stopped by a Chipmunk Doorstop

World Market sells this cast iron doorstop as a squirrel…

…but to me it’s clearly a chipmunk. (Chippies hold their tails straight & low to the ground, while squirrels hold ’em curved & high. Although the tail does look thicker than a typical chipmunk tail. Ohwell.)

Darn, does it’s have to be out of stock online. It’s so cute. :)
