oving these vintage Portuguese transportation ads — particularly the awesome lettering, which I found over at Dias que Voam, which you should visit PRONTO.
The majuscule letters (do we say that in English? for capital letters?) at the bottom of the first ad above kind of remind me of the style of lettering I used for lettering the names on my last round of family tree orders (finally shipped!):

Today I learned that Megan Fox has a paper phobia and, thus, despises paper. I always knew that my distaste for her was warranted. Even before I saw those wretched previews for that wretched movie, Jennifer’s Body.
HOW CAN YOU HATE PAPER?!? Which makes me question whether or not she ever really graduated high school. Or junior high. Or any other school, for that matter. Because I’m pretty sure schools harbor LOTS of paper. Sometimes even collected and bound in things called BOOKS.
Here are the paper patterns I selected for the family tree I’m making for a friend. Cover your eyes, Megan Fox.

More leaves to add, and then, obviously, the names.

In celebration of our official foray into Fall, I give you these swirly, falling leaves, courtesy of Kite Tail Press.
Here in New England, the leaves are just beginning to change color — the greens to the ochres, the ochres to muted sepias… Gazing around, the brisk breeze lapping against my cheek, I can feel the reds and oranges on their way in for a visit. I’ll pay homage to them once they arrive. Promise.
