The days have been dark and gloomy recently, which means I've gone on several walks in the rain. And each time I come home drenched and muddy. It just adds more to the thrill and mood of my adventures, right? Everything is so green and covered in tiny water jewels.... Continue reading

I've been feeling under the weather the last couple days, but I'm trying to check things off my list. I've ordered new business cards and added some new paintings to the mix... I can't wait to see how they turn out. I've updated my shop a bit... kind of annoyed... Continue reading

A certain little girl is playing the role of Miss Hannigan in her drama club's performance of Annie tonight. I managed to put together a cute little costume using long strands of pearls, a bright orange boa, plastic curlers and the most magnificent polyester vintage robe (Thanks, Erin! you saved...

Does this still work? Testing. Does anyone hear me? Whoa, it's been ages since I've posted here. But I think I need to write and share and document again. I feel like I'm drifting these days. Let's see if Mermaids and Moss can give me some focus. Continue reading

I've been pretty quiet lately, here on Mermaids and Moss. I've had a lot to process and think about. My father passed away in January. He died on my birthday. I spent much of the last few days alone with him. My sister and I were holding on to him... Continue reading

Hoping to make some little winter birds happy, I recently bought this bird feeder. I've attached it to our back kitchen door. We've had a few visits, but not many. I think those little birds quickly became aware of our resident bird watcher Bear. I'm sure he's been throwing himself... Continue reading

Halloween was a success! Our evening included the neighborhood parade and pizza party, a spooky get together with friends, pumpkins filled with candy, and happy trick or treating through a beautiful old neighborhood covered in webs and twinkling lights. As usual, I put together the costumes at the last moment.... Continue reading

We squeezed in a whirlwind trip to Chincoteague, Virginia a few weekends ago. Fall is probably my favorite time of year to visit. The weather is usually pretty amazing, cool enough for biking, but still warm and sunny and not a mosquito in sight. We love the rugged natural beaches... Continue reading

We had a fun visit to the pumpkin patch last weekend. The perfect pumpkins were picked (well, except for that enormous rotten one that we accidentally brought home, but we won't talk about that). The kids had fun running through the hay maze. I indulged in two orders or freshly... Continue reading

We're pretty excited about this page about us in the November issue of Family Fun. We were thrilled to be contacted by the creative director a few months back about contributing to the magazine. She knew exactly which photo she wanted to include and I think she made the perfect... Continue reading

We picked apples at the orchard last weekend. I have to admit that over the years, my little girl has formed the opinion that picking apples isn't fun. Sob. It can be hot and tiring and most of all she dislikes the squished apples littering the ground and swarming with... Continue reading
