When the size of your home is something of a novelty, and there are five people living in it, naturally, people on the outside looking in become curious. What is it really like living there? It brings to mind the... Continue reading

Thank you! Life has bumps and hard turns, even in the little house. But we are blessed and try to remember gratitude for our abundance.

When words or word pictures come to me that I've never met before, it's like meeting someone exciting for the first time. This was one of those times. Thanks for the love!

So appreciate that!

Such a compliment! Thank you!

With early-week rain followed by abundant sun, it was no wonder the grass had gone shaggy by the time we got back from three days away. We all know grass grows, but I'd almost swear that, in a cat's-away-the-mice-will-play fashion,... Continue reading

When I feel my energy flagging, I know to take a look at a few things: Am I getting enough protein? Am I getting enough greens and fruits? Am I getting enough rest? Eggs, nuts, nut butters, wild game, wild... Continue reading

I'd love to have a photo gallery of the Shelter Collection houses. If/when I receive pictures, I'll be sure to share! Note: the house plans came out just last year, so understandably, there is a delay between the release and when the plans are purchased, a lot is found, finances are in order, a contractor is secured, and the building is actually complete. Waiting is hard!

This sounds like the best kind of discovery!

Oh, the idea of a 3' by 15' bed of lily of the valley is blowing my mind! Thank you!

That time I perused my ample seed collection in mid winter, I took note of those two packs of sweet peas I'd purchased, but never planted. This year, I determined, there would be sweet peas to pick. There's never lack... Continue reading

Not on the ground, but I had to laugh when, just after I published this post, it began snowing heavily, like wet cotton balls falling from the sky! You never know in what form precip will fall in April and May!

The photos in these descriptive posts are simply inpsiration photos that I used to give an idea of the feeling of the interiors, not photos of the actual homes in the Shelter Collection. The second floor in all the Shelter Collection houses features ample headroom, even for tall people, so no worries (ceiling height is around 7' at the eave and 9' at the peak)! If you'd like to see the actual floor plans, they are available at: shopcarmellarayone(dot)com

Oh, Ashley, ask any one of my boys and they'll tell you I'm the WORST person to ask when it comes to music recs! I'm not inclined to compile playlists or build music libraries. That Saturday evening, I did my typical thing and chose a 'recommended for you' selection that was front and center on the page called 'acoustic evening'. I loved it! Every single song. Win!

When I see one tucked almost out of sight, and nearly out of mind in a thrift shop, I stop to consider. There's something about a thin vintage picture frame with a bit of history rubbed in, that draws my... Continue reading

Loves, this was my Saturday night! It's nearly all I can do not to pause right here and apply a whole strand of exclamation points behind that sentence, because excessive exclamation would be entirely appropriate. With my fellas away at... Continue reading

Thanks, friend.
Somehow, it did to mine as well.

You might remember the story behind this one. I've never regretted the rescue, the new lease on life, the purpose put back into a purposeful thing. It's just a handbag, yes, but the idea behind the rescue is so much... Continue reading
