About Ali

I enjoy wood paneled station wagons, German food and senior citizens (I am 80 years old at heart). Nearly every weekend I am taking photos at other people's weddings and I have a blog of my own (but I don't update it often enough). I love to paint, sew and knit.

    I recently started a design blog of my own ( and I was wondering if you would like to put each other’s links on our pages?
    You have some really interesting posts that I think would be beneficial to share with my *future* audience (hopefully haha).

    well…it sure is big and boxy, like giant Ikea store. the neighbors must hate it! I was disappointed in the cheap construction. but the owners seemed happy.
