A Simple Life

That’s what I have been striving to live these last couple of years. I work a lot, play a little, and just really enjoy my life. Good friends and family are a blessing. Finding lost friends from long ago are doubly so. Spring has finally arrived with a week of 80’s in our forecast – time for yard work and poking in the dirt. Gardens are in need of tending – the weeds are winning. Life is pretty simple here.

Speaking of simple, have you all seen the new magazine called A Simple Life? If you are familiar with the books of Jill Peterson, you will love the new publication. Primitive homes, historical accounts, places to go,  and so much more. I am honored to contribute a project to their winter issue, so be sure to check it out. www.asimplelifemagazine.com I promise it is well worth a subscription!

I am finishing my project for Create and Decorate’s December issue (yep, deadlines for projects run that far in advance.) It does seem odd to work on winter projects in Spring, but that’s how it works.

If you haven’t checked out my web site recently, you’ll find some new pages: Antiques & Vintage, New Offerings, and Close Outs. I am trying my best to downsize some of the things I have collected over the years. I hope some of you will find treasures you can’t live without. I am trying my best to keep up with adding new things – it’s hard. Too much going on, but I am trying. Please visit and if you are searching or collect something, email me – I have a little bit of everything to pass along to someone.

The gardens are calling, so I will leave you with this thought:

The best things in life are nearest:  Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you.  Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life’s plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life.  ~Robert Louis Stevenson
