Bravo!

I'm applauding you! Finding yourself is so vital to contentment. I, too, have learned that the natural course of life reveals to me more and more who I am and what is really me. The best thing we can do for ourselves is to embrace that and let the things go that don't support or describe that.

Pound a nail, hang the calendar. Unscrew the broken towel hook, replace it with another (good thing there were more than I needed in the lot auction from eBay). Glue the wooden T-cap back onto the bentwood coat rack. Fixings.... Continue reading

Words about contentment inspired this series that celebrates ingenuity, creativity, and resourcefulness. Join me in the comments and share what you've done with what you have. It seems freezers can swallow up food, hiding it in a jumble of frosty... Continue reading

Letting go of things can be difficult at times. We're more inclined to bring in, to feather our nests, to set up shop. It feels better, feels prepared and accomplished - responsible even - to have abundant stock, stacked up... Continue reading

Although I'm most definitely a winter girl (love the quiet, tucked-in feeling & the blanket of white outside), about this time of year, I begin thinking of blooms. Thus the purposely late-planted narcissus bulbs, timed to bloom in the early... Continue reading

I gobbled this one up in a matter of days. Simple Matters by Erin Boyle. Those of us in Erin's following could finally let out a collective exhale (and a squeal of delight) when this much-anticipated book released two weeks... Continue reading

I, too, made mine a different size than the pattern, but no, mine isn't long enough for straight needles, as I was intending it for cosmetics when I made it. But altering the pattern measurements, making it longer and shorter would be an easy way to make one that would. It was a fun bag to make, no?

Nellie's friends gave her dental chews, which she thinks are fabulous. They're shaped like toothbrushes!

So far so good with the spray nozzle. This one is superior in quality to ones that come with a plastic bottle.

Yes, a basement could easily be added, with access below the stairs going up, where the half bath is currently. You would lose the half bath, but gain a basement.

I confess, I always have my slippers on! These shots were taken in a hurry, and I'd left them behind...
