I am starting to get a little itchy around my neckline where I got a good burn at the first Clemson home game of the 2015 football season. It was the only place I overlooked a triple application of SPF 55 sunscreen. Last weekend was full of football, family and, yes, fun. (Can’t help but… Read More A little Clemson love
It is about 9 on a Saturday morning and I am about to get started on a full day of crafting. I just need some caffeine. A little sunlight. And lots of glue, paper, glittery bits and memories. Scrapbooking, art journaling and photography along with a little mixed media all rolled into one happy morning.… Read More O Crafty Day!
1. Never pay full price for perennials if you don’t have to. You can always find a friend or neighbor who has some to transplant. Case in point, these beautiful irises from a friend from church who put out a desperate plea that she was being taken over by them.

I brought them to our marriage and they’re our little buddies. They’re also spoiled by their “grandparents”. Morning and evening walks are… Read More Meet our two babydawgs

This is picture Number One of seven celebrating the arrival of a working smartphone. I have missed posting these random photos of daily life. This puppy is a Chi-Morky-zu. Chihuahua mixed with a morky (Maltese and yorkie) mixed with our Maltese/shitzu. How’s that for a designer dog?
“Goals that are not written down are just wishes.” I saw that statement on fellow blogger’s Facebook page earlier this week and shared the link on my own page.
