that yellow bee pitcher

It's finally Friday and boy, am I looking forward to the weekend.

I've been racking my brain over my 'ten facts about me" list.  I had no idea how hard it would be to come up with ten.  But I promised, so here goes...ten things about me that you don't already know.


1. I hate peas, alway have since I was a little girl.  I don't know why, but just the thought of them makes me queasy.
2.  I love crafts of all kinds and actually have a separate blog dedicated to my crafting adventures.
3.    My camera is a Nikon D90.  I love it but freely admit that it is totally beyond my abilities as a photographer.
4.  My dream is to leave my State job next year, (yes, I am a government worker) and pursue my love of all things domestic, becoming as self sufficient as possible along the way.
5.  I have more designer paper and beautiful fabric than I will ever be able to use but I continue to buy it and hoard it.
6.  I really don't like to paint walls...in fact, I really, really, really don't like to paint walls.
7.  I have to choose to be content and not think the grass just might be greener in someone else's yard.
8.  I would rather buy new garden plants than a new pair of shoes.
9.  Our dog sleeps in the bed with us.  In fact, he usually ends up between our two pillows.
10. One day I want to open a little shop on etsy.

That's it...
Since so many of you asked, I purchased the yellow bee pitcher at a local shop in town...and yes, I adore it, too.


For those of you who noticed, you're right, that is a golf ball in my little white pitcher.  It seems there is always something stashed in there, including trains, hot wheels and even a harmonica. 

Have a wonderful weekend.  My sister's in town so I'll talk to you all on Sunday.

  5. The veggies WERE yummy! lol
    I too hate to paint walls, but sure do love how it looks when they're all done! I love peas though...especially sugar snaps!
    Have a great weekend

  6. You have quite the eye for decorating, I do love that bee pitcher.

    I too love crafts and sewing. Anyone that is crafty has a stash of supplies but there is always room for more. I have fabric and if I sewed each day for a year I would not make a dent in it.

    I tried Etsy but you have to really get the word out if you have a shop. So mamy seller there that shops get lost. I remember when it first started out. The shoppers there love to see loads of pictures so your camera will come in handy for taking good photos. I have been looking at the Nikon but I think its over my head.

    Hope you are staying cool.

  13. I know what you mean about craft supplies. I have some much yarn, fabric, and general craft stuff that I'll never use it all. Although I promised myself I'd stop buying, seems I'm always "needing" something now that I have a blog.

    Like you, I have a Nikon. Mine is a D60. I don't know how to use it either! Kind of odd to have a DSLR but to only take pictures in automatic. I really need to read the book I bought or to take a class.

    Would love to see your craft blog!
