Surf & Sand

I was looking for a new color for our Brickhouse lights and I was thinking about the Beach. So this morning I mixed some colors and came up with our new Surf & Sand Lights. What do you think...does it make you dream about being on the beach?

Weed or Flower?


Legend has it that Queen Anne, the wife of King James I, was challenged by her friends to create lace as beautiful as a flower. While making the lace, she pricked her finger, and it’s said that the purple-red flower in the center of Queen Anne’s Lace represents a droplet of her blood.

A weed is but an unloved flower.

~Ella Wheeler Wilcox~



I hope you agree this is a beautiful flower and not a weed!

Cleaning House

Well, not the whole house, just my craft room. I really should take a picture of how it looks right now but I am not brave enough to show you what it looks like. Just picture this...our house was lifted up and shook around by a giant, and then placed back down. Get the picture? What a mess! Not sure if you are like me, BUT I can't craft/create when my house is a this week I am cleaning and organizing starting with the craft room.  I have 3 different work areas in my craft room: my painting area, the tart making area and the light dipping area; and they all need to be orginized.  This is going to take awhile...wish me luck!

Love this! Photo from Pinterest.
All this cleaning and orginizing is cutting into my PINTEREST  time!  If you aren't familiar with Pinterest you have to check it out. Just be can be addicting. Now for all of you that are suffering with this heat wave, I linked you to some winter scenes on the pinterest link above! Enjoy and stay cool!

How we spent our weekend.

 This past weekend we packed up some goodies from the Brickhouse and headed out to a Craft Show at  ARMSTRONG VALLEY WINERY.

The Barn/Tasting Room at Armstrong Valley Winery.

A nice place to sit and relax with a glass of wine.

Some visitors to the winery relaxing in the shade.

Our "neighbors" Kirsten and Deb selling their wares.

 I wonder what they are discussing?

Here's your sign!
Artisans Row!

Tim and I loved this customer..he had us laughing so hard!
Still talking about the candles! :)

What a fun way to spend a weekend. We are looking forward to the next time!

Looks serious!
