Welcome to my little corner of the world where the cattle graze peacefully in the pastures, books are being read and pottery is being made.

sentiment and viewpoint

I have been going back and forth on what subject to write about on my blog. So, I just haven't written. Like many of you, I am sure,  are a bit disorientated.  Our generation hasn't ever gone through anything like the COVID19 pandemic before.  I was going ninety miles...

last of the winter days

last of the winter days

I love winter, I love the coziness of watching a movie by the fire while curled up in a warm blanket and a cup of hot tea within reach. I love the time it allows us to rest, not worrying about the garden or yard work. To be able to thumb through magazines for ideas...

  Love. This is a fascinating word.The word conjures up all kinds of feelings. It is the profound feeling of admiration, respect, adoration and cherishing someone.  Just seeing them brings a smile to your face and a warm deep seated feeling in your heart. Some...

2020

2020

How in the world did it get to be 2020 already?  I remember as a kid, thinking 2020 was a million years away.  That we would all be riding in Jetson cars, have robots and drive through showers. I try to keep up with technology the best I can.  We do have a robot...

Friends

Friends

Isn't it amazing how people come together?  How a stranger becomes a dear friend?  How one small hello turns into a 3 hour conversation.   My second cousin, Pat, was my first  and best friend, she continues to be so to this day.  We may not see each other but...

As such a time as this.

As such a time as this.

Life can be a bit tiring sometimes.  With the news blasting 24 hours a day, hateful opinions, rudeness and dramatic sensationalism, it wears me out! I believe that we must possess the spiritual strength to overcome these challenges. To look for goodness and kindness....

Fall Pottery Line

Fall Pottery Line

I have been behind in getting my fall pottery line out. It seems like I have been running in circles lately.  Nothing bad, just very busy. But I do have some pretty cool stuff about to be loaded in my Etsy shop! Since you have signed up for my newsletter, I will tell...

Changing seasons

"Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, Summer is an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of all of them." Stanley Horowitz I love fall. I am that obnoxious person who puts up fall decorations on September 1st. I have always loved fall since I was a child. Raking...

Untie

Untie

I read a quote not long ago "Don't cut what you can untie".  At the time, it just meant to not cut the pretty ribbon, to untie it and save it. I have a drawer full of ribbons, twine, cords and wire that I have untwisted and saved. I use most of them. Some I am saving...

Summer Sale

I am having a summer sale! It is 107 degrees in central Texas today.  I am so ready for cooler temperatures! Come September 1st, I don’t care if it is 110 degrees outside, I will be putting a fall wreath on our gate. I am almost giddy thinking of fall and all that...

Family

I have a family reunion coming up in September. I haven't been to one in years. I was always too busy, couldn't take time off from work or just couldn't get away. I feel ashamed that I didn't take the time. In the past five years, both of my parents have passed away,...
