Special Saturdays

These are the kind of days that I like. Nothing to really do. No pressure no time lines or deadlines. Today was one of those for me. I didn't even really have to go grocery shopping either. Just stay at home and get a whole lot done at home but it was all fun easy stuff. Washing dishes vs. making something handmade and then trying to sell it. It is nice and warm out. The window in my studio has been open all day......there is city sound....traffic, people, children, music, birds, dogs barking and so much more......I received a Mother's Day card early along with cherry smelling soap in the shape of a rose so that all you have to do to use the soap is pull a petal off.....really lovely. I can't wait to make my cards for my two partners and of course I always have a neat thing to tuck in the card. That would be a bookmark. Today I didn't have to make a bookmark because I have many to share. I have these prints too and there are many of these to share. They would look really nice framed! I kept the Baltimore Oriole bird print because I pretty much grew up in Maryland. Where did you grow up?

Stormy Days

"Earth hath no sorrow that heaven cannot heal."

Thomas Moore

May God bless you in this time of trouble with the healing certainty of his love.

Yesterday's disaster in Alabama due to tornados is on my mind. Today we are in the path of this ugly storm. All the way up here in Southern NH. Clouds are black and it is windy. Humid and warm. Grey skies.......threatening rain. It is not quite noon.....the peak of warmth most days up here at this time of year. Shorts kind of weather and a short sleeved shirt oh I suppose you could wear sandals too. I have done sandals in the rain it is not fun! In fact I was in a hurricane in FL.

Arrival of Spring

From the looks of dates here I have been very busy. I am late posting an Easter Greeting so I thought well why not add it now. So Happy Easter Greetings to all. I hope things went well for you and you had a wonderful day on Sunday. Many blessings!

We are arriving at Spring now. Beautiful bright yellow forsythia bushes have burst open and the lilac is leafing once again. All of the daffodils, also tulips and hiacynths, mostly the small plants like snowdrops have popped up out of the ground. Just this past Saturday we got enough snow that it coated everything. It has been coolish and rainy since but the next two days up here in southern NH we are looking for the 60's and that is going to make a lot of Springtime pop here!

I am feeling better healthwise......I had a rough Fall right through Winter. Feeling a lot better now! Thanks for all of the prayers! I am so grateful to have my windows open in my studio and I can hear the birds chirpping! The best sound in the world to me is that! Frogs croaking would be the second best!

A Sunny Sunday

Today I can get some more photography done. Yay it is a sunny Sunday......then I will be posting and listing my goods in two shops at I did some reasearch while my shop was down and Etsy by far has the best set up and the costs are very reasonable compared to other venues. Here is a sneak peek at what I have to list for sale. There is a lot more including supplies, jewelry, hand made paper piecings, my art, art bookmarks and so on. Check out and for vintage!

Saturdays Are For Sleeping In

I slept in until the phone started ringing at 10:15 this morning. I got about 6 hours more sleep than I normally do. How is that for sleeping in? I was up at 10:15 AM. So in an effort to post today I have decided to post later than usual! Do you need an alarm clock to wake up? I don't! I am magically up at 4 AM or so every morning. This is quite the clock but it doesn't work or at least wise I don't know if it truly does or doesn't so I say it seems broken to me. Great for decoration though! This alarm clock is an antique that belongs to me.

There Goes March

I did not post for all of March and so I decided today would be a good day to start writing again. I actually can't believe this and I am not fooling. It is snowing here in Southern NH today! It started last night about 10 PM and now at 7:11 AM it is still snowing a wet heavy snow that sticks to everything! Yesterday this storm was in FL. My sister was there too. Last night she told me about how she heard the tornado sirens going off during the afternoon yesterday. Brought back memories of when I lived there not too long ago~5 years ago this May. I love to watch snow falling! Wherever you are I hope you have a wonderful day today!
