Gold Mining

Vein of Gold
Research...the slow and steady crawl toward learning something new and being able to translate it into something worth your time and energy. I have discovered a small, but shiny vein of gold in the Arts & Crafts Movement of the late 1800s, and I'm following it diligently in hopes of finding the mother lode to share with you. I appreciate your patience as I dig through the debris.

More Home Decorating

I just started my research for the next jewelry period, the Arts & Crafts Movement. Since good writing is founded upon good research, and since good research takes time, I've decided to show you more pictures of our house today.

My amazing decorator, Armina Wylie, has flown north for the summer. Standby for more pictures this fall!

For Everything There is a Season

For Everything There is a Season
I'm sure some of you noticed that I did not post last week. I didn't want another week to go by without a word from me. Our family has lost a very important friend and father figure. He was in the hospital all last week, and his passing today was peaceful and painless. I am grateful for that. In honor of his life, I am practicing some moments of rest and silence from my usual labors. Next week will be a better week for writing!
