A page I follow on Facebook shared this awesome Fiskars tool - I immediately added it to my Amazon wish list (Christmas is coming!)  I don't spray my lawn with any chemicals, I choose to dig up weeds by hand which is hard on my back.  This looks like a better solution. Does anyone have this tool?

my eclectic decorating

I went furniture shopping with my daughter - I rarely step into a furniture store.  The salesman was all about choosing things that matched.  Well, it's my daughter's house and she can choose what she wants but when he directed those statements to me I just shook my head. Many of the items in my house are things I've picked up at antique stores and yard sales.  I buy things because I like them, not because they match something in my house.  This little cupboard looks like someone made it for their little girl.  I didn't do anything to it as I fell in love with it just the way it is.  The red linoleum used on it reminds me of my grandmother's kitchen - maybe that's why I fell in love with it.

My writing workshop group has an anthology of our writings coming out in September. One of my stories is "The Moonlight Garden."  One of our members just created a blog for our anthology - Driftwords Anthology.  I'm the first featured author - very humbling!

Re-entering the blog world

Greetings all! As you can see, I've been "missing in action" for the past year.  Life became so busy I decided the one thing I could give up was my blog. I've missed it :(  I am going to attempt to get back into blogging.  This time around, I've changed the name of my blog as I will hopefully post about gardening along with other things that interest me.  I may also post some of my writing.  For now, I'll leave you with one of my recent flower pictures. This is my morning glory gone wild. It's growing through my alyssum, which has also gone crazy!
