A quick little whereabouts

These days are full, so full that I’ve actually made a few phone calls that I’ve actually dialed and then set the phone down and forgot that I had even made the call.  I’m negative in time and trying to make it up but with this negativity, I still have to keep the new jewelry coming, filling old orders and tending to the garden that half had been removed and started over.

I’m posting a new pair of earrings that I personally adore, they’re rustic and worn with a bit of sparkle.  They remind me of a lost city or perhaps something with a bit of Caribbean to them.  They’re listed on Etsy HOWEVER will be made to order as the glass will have to be set.  I’m offering a few choices in faceted glass.

Agenda:  Necklaces, bracelets & earrings of this style.

It’s time for a change…

I hope you enjoy!






Some things are best when left unsaid SO….


Here ya go, pics of the garden, the Lil and a couple of new jewelry pieces.  Am I really supposed to be doing this? I mean making jewelry, is this my calling OR am I supposed to be doing something else?  I seem to be in a funny spot, This girl is over loaded and really disliking this feeling of pressure, but then there’s the thing I do outdoors every single day (that would be tending to the yard, a big one) and even wonder if I really enjoy doing that anymore… what the heck is wrong with me?

I’m not candy coating this crazy mind, life, dream… it is what it is and I’m slipping steadily, “Someone, can you please pop this cork and fast”?????

“She’s ready to blow”

I’ve moved into new office space, smaller and easier to find things than it was before, it’s cooler than the creek house and I’m certain will be warmer in the winter.  I’m happy here, it looks like everyone migrates to my new little cubby, *smiles.


A little display


 The new chair ( was supposed to go out in the yard ) hee hee


A vintage trash can, I love this thing… Seems I dig in it for lost things all the time.


Something special

*The Garden

If I were a true farmer, my family would most likely die from malnutrition.  If it weren’t for the acorns they would surely parish.  I managed to neglect the garden after I found the crickets munching on our future food.  I’m sticking to my guns though, No pesicides, ever!  Next year I come up with a new plan, maybe start the newbies in pots rather than sow the seeds straight into their new home.







* The Lil

Where can I start?  She’s a joy, a pain, feisty, a potty machine, a terror and adorable.  She’s never filling Simes place, he was a one of a kind friend and forever will leave a heavy place in my heart a giant hole rather.  Lil seems to play hard and sleep even harder.

The life of a pup

Can you say “Trouble”????

She’s getting snappy with me

Boy… It sure appears you have a rough life Lil!

*New jewelry

Custom orders are being re-thought as well as requests to re-make what I’ve made in the past.  Sure, I can make it again but can I make it in time???  No, I seem to have this luck of multiple requests at the same time and then make all sorts of promises that I can’t keep.  I’m sorry, I just have a lot of things transpiring at once.  One day soon I hope, I’ll get this shop in tip top shape and fire things off in the mail as soon as I get an order but while I’m working alone while holding the fort down, the song remains the same.


A new little handmade jewelry pouch

A long awaited custom order… Thank you M!

Better days ahead!

Lost and found

A late spring cleaning turned out to be a little treasure hunt.  We’re in the midst of moving my beading workbench into my office in the house, I found so many things that most likely fell under the cabinet or I just put it aside and forgot about it.  I love days like this, they make me smile.

My mood is quiet today, it shows.


A few of the found pieces were listed on Etsy yesterday.


I made Lily a new tag for her collar, making more!


Been beading again, getting ready for the triple wrap bracelets and peyote and leather bracelets, it’s a project I’ll always love doing, it’s necessary.

Also found was a black heavily patinaed pair of sterling and jade earrings, I wonder how long ago I made them.  I don’t ever recall making them, I’m losing my mind and fast.



I don’t have much to say about the garden this week except the crickets ate 52 sunflower plants and a little of the greenbeans.  I’m on the warpath,  Relocated crickets, coming soon! Who would have ever thought that I would dislike them this much?  Devistation is what I’ve felt so no garden pictures this week.  Next week will be better, I’m sure.

The Wild oats earrings are probably my most favorite pair at present as well as the green beaded wrap!

Signing out with the chartreuse beaded wrap bracelet, more next week.


June showers

Yay…I don’t have to water today!

We were blessed with late spring rainshowers, I love days like this.  Its like life sorta stops for a moment and runs for cover, this is when I feel like I’ve taken charge and can dance in the rain all alone.   Solitude is something I believe everyone needs once in a while, a time for thought and repair.

Seeking a new direction, more time, surrounding myself around beautiful souls and learning to breathe while I’m transitioning into a butterfly of some sort.  It’s the cocoon stage… please bare with me!

Sending an abundance of love my ladies,


Bringing the clothesline out soon

Nice little quad wrapped leather embellished with a golden bronze dragonfly.
