FullSizeRender Lexie in the pillows

This is my little Lexie, a chihuahua mix who is tiny but so sweet. Here she is trying to sleep under my pillows. She is a burrower. Makes a great watch dog because she has a fierce bark.

Christmas Everyday and The Girl Behind the Curtain

I need one full day at home per week to get things done. This past week being Pre-Christmas, wrapping gifts was in order. My bedroom was a disaster. It was an unholy Grinch's nightmare...and I was in heaven. I use Christmas cards from last year for gift tags, color coordinating them with the paper. The boxes that my daughters' boots came in (there are 3) were chic and didn't need wrapping, just a bow.I had finished decorating my new artificial tree with Baby's Breath  flowers as trimming. It…See More

Oysters & Pearls

My eyes spot a giant pearl, nesting in white gold. It beams like an all knowing lunar orb, looking back as if it sees me. Am I an oyster or a pearl? I wonder. Advertised smart from an online jeweler, I choose the right size, 5.5. I’m really bad about jewelry, losing it, breaking it. I picture wearing it at tradeshows, with French tips, when the appearance of my hands matters. Price differentiates between natural pearls and cultured pearls. Of three tons of harvested oysters, maybe three or four…See More
