j.crew cableknit/ beads from afghanistan

one of my favorite things about northern california?  there are towns that only stretch for one block.  some of them aren't the size of a neighborhood.  my mom will tell me about the neighbors down the street (10 miles away) and she'll mention a town that used to be there.  some of them fade away, and only one or two people know that they ever existed.  there's a crooked mansion near my parents' house - according to our neighbors, it used to be a one-room schoolhouse.  you can tell by looking at the architecture.

  9. nice sweater, looks very cozy.

    while my town is small, it's not that small, but i've seen a few places around here that seem a lot like what you've described. kinda eery in a way.

  13. I love your cream cable knit sweater! The colour of your beaded necklace is so lovely! It's weird to think that towns that once excited don't anymore!
