time flies

Time sure does fly doesn't it?
It seems to go by even faster between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
This year, my way of dealing with the rush of days
is to slow myself down and let them go by,
enjoying the moments and not thinking so much about the hours.

simple and pretty

A couple of my favorite new earrings.

Simple and pretty in silver and gold.

Align CenterThese would be just right for the holidays.

Both are available in my Etsy shop.

a time to remember

What a nice surprise this morning
to find my 'wear my ring' necklace in this sweet treasury.

Many thanks to amberike for including me!

how to store and organize cats

It's probably because of my OCD tendencies
that I found these so hysterically funny.


Thanks to MsBelle for posting this on Tumblr.

Made My Day!

Seriously! How lovely!

I've never been the frilly type,
but wearing one of these would change my world.

They can be found at Thongbai Tatong's shop on Etsy

pebbles and pearls

warm autumn colored freshwater pearls
on chestnut brown knotted silk
in my shop now

I can't walk by a pile of pebbles
without picking some up and putting them in my pocket.

which travel a long way underground
before they come to the surface."

I Ching

It's been four months - a quarter of an entire year - a long lazy summer - since my last post.

While I was away, 1000 Markets closed. Sad. I loved having a shop there, but when that door closed -

I opened a shop on Zibbet. You can visit it here.

And I got a Tumblr account. I love a pretty picture. Each one, I'm told, is worth a thousand words, more or less.

Now I'm dusting off the old blog and rearranging a bit in preparation for the long quiet winter.

I may even sneak around late at night, tweaking past posts, making them more to my liking, because I'm funny {weird} that way.
