I have to say, this is a favorite day…the frantic rush of presents and baking is over, the dust settles, you can put on your new flannel shirt and be cozy, peruse your Christmas books. Best of all when it falls on Saturday and nobody has to go anywhere. Whether your Christmas was one of […]
A LONG short day….
We had this idea that we’d get up really early, do all of our errands and then return home by 9:30 a.m. with the day ahead of us…it looked like this… 8:00 a.m. leave home…dark and pouring… head south to Kinkos to make 20 more Christmas cards…(NOBODY in the store at 8:00 a.m.) Lifesource next…florals […]
The First Day of Winter
Today I was able to enjoy the images as Christmas steams toward us…like the view from the parking garage on the way to yoga.. the Christmas village at Gerry and Pug’s Magic at the Mill the new Fuji Polaroid film… hanging out with Whistler’s father.. and the mail that brought word from loved ones near […]
I don’t think I have the medical condition that Makes you SAD on the longest night/shortest day of the year…but I look forward to the return of light in a BIG way… As soon as the festivities are over, I begin to think of making new work and doing new things…the excitement of the possibilities […]
Blog Sloth Admission
I’ve been lazy in the blog department but then…no time to write and nobody has time to read so, what the heck…and then it hasn’t been inspiring weather, you know?

Ready for Christmas
An ALMOST wordless Wednesday…I survey the house and see we are ready…have a lovely holiday readers…xo
Four More Days!
Well, it’s true. the week before Christmas isn’t the “bloggiest” time of year. Life takes over and examining the life comes second or maybe 15th on the to-do list. Here’s what the week looked like…Carwash… kitchen retro-fit… Fruitcake! Christmas… We’re almost ready! You?
Yesterday my sister-in-law LeeAnn put a post on her quilting blog about Christmas stockings…hers and my brother Bruce’s from their childhoods. Of course I had to go hunting for our Christmas stockings, which we haven’t put out for a few years. When I was about 9 and Bru was a baby my Mom made these […]
The Christmas Studio
I really have gotten the BEST Christmas present ever (and early)…my new studio. Today was one of those Oregon days…dark, pouring rain…I mean POURING rain…ick. So, I thought, what better to do than go to the studio. (the building behind, by the way, is Legal Aid…not our house.) This photo was taken about 3:00, which […]
