Dropped by the Vancouver edition of Maker Faire this morning. Charlotte was keen to support her Aunt Fiona and Gen Why Media. It was a cross between a science fair and burning man. I think Charlotte got the most out of Gen Why’s artists speakers (until she started making pig noises which is when we decided to make a move…)
Ever since Charlotte was born I’ve taken on a new handy man persona. Before Charlotte I used to loathe fixing things or even putting things together. Now that I have a little one looking up to me I feel there isn’t any odd job I can’t handle. For instance today I installed an Eames ‘Hang It All‘ in Charlottes room without so much as a curse word (maybe one curse word and a brief moment of panic). This wooden ball classic was designed in California in 1953 by Charles & Ray Eames. Who says you have to stop buying beautiful furniture once you have kids?
Eleven days late on this posting, so sorry. That might explain Charlotte’s refusal to smile on this one. Happy 19th!
Charlotte loves going up and down our little step over and over and over… Her friend pig is always along for the ride.
