Little Changes Through the Seasons

Happy Fun Night of Trick or Treaters!
This year I have taken a different approach to getting the house "ready" 
for the different seasons.
  I call it the "little-by-little" technique,  or  "5 minute holiday decorating".

Happy Sunday!

While enjoying a quiet cup of coffee on a lovely Spring morning...I hear an unusual sound...and imagine my surprise when I look up to see this come up over the horizon!

What a treat!

Round-Top treasures to round out March

 Spring-time and Easter in Texas...
The blue skies, fluffy clouds, cool breezes and warm sunshine 
are enough to awaken Spring fever in even the most reluctant spirits.
The weather this Easter weekend was exactly this blissful.  
And if you are a "picker" or a "junker" or a connoisseur of re-purposing vintage--

New Orleans Get-a-way! Part 1-Curb Appeal

When all your senses are on alert...and you are giddy with excitement...
When your creative adrenaline is on overdrive...
and your feet feel 2 feet off the ground....

If you are a creative-type...I know you know what I am describing.
It's awesome to feel this thrill..and that is exactly
how I felt during my recent visit to New Orleans.

Top 5 Posts of 2015

As I have mentioned many times, 2015 was a blur....but I am happy I was able to keep blogging during all the transition as it is fun to look back now and see how I was thinking during that phase. 
I didn't get to do much crafting, but instead focused on my photography.  
I love this photo of the coral. 
I collected this dead find more than 20 years ago 
off of the coast of Southern California, scuba-diving with my dad.  
Even though the water temperature was very cold, 
we used to try to go out a few weekends every month in the summer--
--he would hunt fresh fish, and I would treasure hunt in the rocks and sand.  
I remember this sea fan was "blowing" right across my path, 
in the currents on the sand, at the bottom of the ocean 35 feet under. 
It looks so delicate, but it is very strong and resilient.

Fun for 2016!

Happy New Year!!

I've decided that my 'new year' 
will officially begin on February 1st!
I will not apologize that I needed all of January to process all of the holidays.
And, I'm happy to say, my hubby officially put the Christmas bins up in the attic today....
there, the house is back in order...albeit no less hectic.
I am excited about this year for many reasons...
