A Bucket List?!

Raise your hand if...you have a bucket list.  You do?!  I'm jealous.

I often think about starting an actual Bucket List, but then I think about where I'd put the list, and then I think about forgetting where I put the list, and then I think about getting ticked off at myself because I'd forget where I put the list.

Then I stop thinking about making the list.

If I WERE to make an actual Bucket List, here are a few things that would be on it...

     *travel to Santa Fe
     *travel to the Badlands
     *travel to the wide open west
     *drive up Mt. Washington
     *travel to Wolf Sanctuary in Ipswich, MA
     *zip line (withOUT getting hit with vertigo)
     *walk a half-marathon
     *walk a whole marathon

Just a few ideas.  The funny thing is that I don't even like to travel, but I noticed that more than half of my ideas involve traveling...what's that all about?!


We don't live that far from Mt. Washington, so I guess we could do that one.

Slip Sliding Away (Am I?!)

No walking at all since this past Thursday, although in my defense, the temp was around 90+ degrees with humidity of 65%.  I barely walked to and from my car, never mind anything else.

But...the weather is gorgeous now and still I have not walked.

I've seen photos of myself lately and man, I am big.  Big and uncomfortable.

Yet still I don't walk.

New Etsy Sales...Yay!


Newest sales in my Etsy shop!



These six square envelopes are my own creation and I just love them!  They're perfect for notecards, small photos, and even a candy (which I may or may not have already eaten!)



The woman who purchased envelopes and gift tags must love paisley as she bought both items.  I so LOVE the colors!

My Cottage


My cottage, my own personal sanctuary.

If I had a place to sleep inside of my cottage, I'd sleep out there on the nights that it rains.  Other nights, too.  

To me, there is no greater lullaby than a good, steady rainstorm.

Night.  :-)

I've Been Busy in My Etsy Shop!

I finally photographed and listed the newest creations in my Etsy shop!  While I love the creating, I don't necessarily love the photo-ing! (is that even a word?)





The above four are all metal washer pendants, one of my favorite items to make.



The two antique book pendants are both done in antique copper pendant trays, which I also love!




Lastly, mini envelopes...probably by all-time favorite!

Thank goodness for the weekend, that's all I can say!
