What Road to Follow....



It's amazing how important your street view becomes everyday. It's your path away from your home ...away from your family, your snuggly couch, your big-eyed puppy. Yet it's also your path back to the safety of your "space"...back to your flowers and veggies...back to an 8 yr old and 13 yr old sporadically getting along....back to kitchen smells and puppy dog tails and mountains of dirty laundry.

What is your daily path?

Soothing.



Time for a good read.




Awareness...because gluten-free isn't just a fad. Especially when you are 8 years old.




Could build a whole room around this. What would you think in a dining room?

An Update....

Garlic Scape Pesto

Here's the amazing pesto made from garlic scapes that I was talking about this morning....I am on my umpteenth batch...the house smells amazing! Kevin Lee Jacobs shares it on his fabulous website, A Garden for the House. We have been dipping crackers in it...but I can't wait to pull a batch out of the freezer for pasta!

A Post for Garlic Lovers....Keep the Vampires Away!

I've Been Featured on a Great Site!

I was recently approached by Jeannie of Cutest Wedding Favors to feature my cowboy burlap as part of a "Western" theme she was showing on her site. I gratefully agreed!

I think you will agree that Jeannie did her homework! She has brought together a great collection.

The burlap with the cowboy boot is available at my Etsy shop. I can also make many variations!


I can also customize a tag with special stamps...or I can sell you just burlap bags to create your own masterpiece!

An Early Saturday Morning Walk

It's been very busy around here. Getting through the last few weeks of school is busy with grades and paper work and cleaning the classroom. I am finished on June 13th and cannot wait. Can't wait to clean my house (boy does it need it)...spend hours gardening...take the kids to the beach...and just take a much needed deep breath...

This morning I took an early morning walk...taking in the beauty nature has to offer...
