Big mug of tea.

Garlic planted.
Some leaves raked.
Mulched garlic.
Bit more garden cleanup.
Dog walked again.
More tea.
Needle felting here and there.
Salad made.
Wine poured.
Lasagna reheated.
More tea.
Nice hot bath.

All done for today.
And this song in my head for most of it.
Not sure why.
Just popped in.
Have a great weekend all!

I've got mail!

Have I ever mentioned the fact that I love whoever began Etsy?
For those of you unfamiliar with this site, it is a showcase for all
things handmade, collectible, craft supplies and
 thousands of..just...beautiful stuff.
If you are an artist or crafts person, this is a great place to showcase
your work for next to nothing.
The website can go into more detail.
ANYWAY... I have been a faithful Etsy buyer and seller for a few years
now and just the other day I received a package from one
of those fantastic suppliers.
Dory of Worthy Goods Textiles has beautiful organic fabric,
fleece and some amazing vintage items in her shop.
It was these vintage bobbin spools which caught my eye...
They have a beautiful, dark patina and I have big plans for them.
We'll see if time allows for the creative ideas I'm trying to marry them with.
Dory even threw in an extra spool as a gift.
Thank you!
Have a look at her shop and go get lost on Etsy...
you won't be disappointed!
(P.S...from now until December 7th, I'm offering FREE SHIPPING!)

Wordless Wednesday...

Going South...

After hours and hours I'm finally ready for my flight south.
My bag is packed...
I've been doing lots of wing exercises to build up muscles for the long flight...
Toughening up my feet for landing and take-off...
My eyes, bright and alert for the exciting and breath taking views...
Yes, I do believe I'm ready to go!
Adios Amigos!

Encouraging words to live by...


Just a little reminder of the important things in life.
