Pink hearts, yellow moons, orange stars and green clovers...A four leaf clover at that! just in time for St. Patty's day. While Tootie was volunteering at her niece's school garden yesterday the teacher brought in a bag of clovers to share with the kids and the first one she pulled out was this HUGE four leaf clover! How lucky can one be?
Hope everyone has a happy St. Patricks Day!
We have finally set the dates for the long awaited series of clubs at ReForm School.
Please RSVP if you plan to attend the first meeting.
Meeting times as follows:
Book Club - Monday, February 21st. 7-9pm
Camera Club - Monday, March 1st. 7-9pm
Pen Pal Club - Monday, March 15th. 7-9pm
So here's the skinny on what the clubs are all about
(in case you haven't heard)
Book Club - Haven't picked up a book since high school? Well now's your chance at ReForm Schools Book Club. Together we'll be choosing our books to read and discuss monthly. Our first title will be selected by a vote via email before our first meeting. Anything goes but we're thinkin' the classics might be a fun place to start. What do you think?
Camera Club - Polish up your lenses for the Camera Club! We'll be assigning various subject matter and exchanging ideas on photo techniques and equipment ... and what's a camera club without lots and lots of picture taking. All cameras and skill levels welcome. We'll even have a monthly photo contest where favorite photos will be displayed in the shop (with photographer credits of course).
Pen Pal Club - Sharpen up those pencils for the Pen Pal Club! First we'll exchange names with pen pals near and far. Perhaps Margo in Maryland or Svea in Sweden. Stationary and stamp swapping is also on the agenda as well as a little time for catching up with family and friends the old fashioned way. If you love snail mail then this is the club for you!
Last but not least..
We really want your input! Please send us any pointers or ideas on how we can make these clubs a big success, cause remember "none of us is as smart as all of us"
Please RSVP and send all tips to:

Great Day At The Flea!
Take a look at the incredible loot we scored at the Rose Bowl last weekend! There's nothing better than starting your morning finding tons of great goodies at the flea market. We wish we could've stayed longer but alas, the shop awaits!
Most of the items came from a booth where everything was $10. We're all set for the summer which we plan to spend doing alot of picnicing and camping. The umbrella was only $5. It's in perfect condition and we're pretty sure the handle is bakelite.
World's Best Oatmeal!

If you have a slow cooker, you simply must try this recipe. Toss the following ingredients in your crockpot at about 9 or 10pm and you will wake up to a perfect bowl of pipin-hot oatmeal. It's good stuff!
1 cup - steel cut oats
1 cup - half & half (fat free is fine)
4 cups - water
1/2 cup - brown sugar
set your pot on low and it'll be perfect in the morning (unless you're known to wake up at noon or something). If your slow cooker has a timer you can set it for about 8 hours. Makes 4 servings.
Here are some pics of the terrarium class we taught for Home Ec on Monday night. The class was at full capacity (yay!)and the group was so much fun. This is the 3rd or 4th class we've taught and we've yet to see anyone botch their terrarium.
Students can never resist playing with the toy animals!
OK..OK...so we know this idea has made the rounds already, but I couldn't resist sharing the letter I made for my beau. I got the idea for the text from a postcard he mailed back home to me while we were on a trip in San Francisco. The trip was many years ago and when I gave him his love letter, he immediately recognized where the words came from. We've decided to hang the love letter over his side of the bed while my original postcard hangs on my side.
We Cannot Tell A Lie...
We love this new print that just arrived from our friend Jill K In LA. Now available in the shop and on the site. Get it here
Natural Stage Project
This past Sunday we took a little hike up Runyan Canyon here in Los Angeles to meet up with Hikes Without Mics for the latest installment of Natural Stage Project. After a short trek, we laid out our blanket and enjoyed some food, friends and great music by some local talent like Roman Candle and our favorite of the day Homesick Elephant .
The weather was perfect and we couldn't think of a better way to spend our Sunday. We're hoping to work up our nerve for next time and show off some of our ukulele skills.. Not quite sure we're ready for an audience.
Even Otis had a great time.
Natural Stage Project takes place the first Sunday of every month. Locations vary. Check out more pics of our day here
