The majority of my wardrobe comes from discount stores, consignment stores and other second hand places. Digging through rack upon rack of used clothing, I feel the need to wash my hands as soon as I can. Some garments are so saturated in fabric softeners that it takes several washings to get them clean. It's all worth it though when you walk out with your latest bargain. When I discover a sweater, jacket, vest or pair of pants with the pockets still stitched up, I know I've discovered virgin territory in a used garment! My fingers will be the first to explore and caress the inner world of a new pocket. There are fresh corners to explore and depth potential to measure. It makes me smile knowing my fingers will be the first and I imagine the things I'll be able to carry in them besides my fingers. I love a brand new pocket.

This is a bee's behind! A happy bee's behind covered in pollen. I grin every time I see this so I decided to share. I hope it makes you grin as well!
Now for some other flowers from my garden...
Angel's Trumpet unfurling at night...
Purple Coneflower and visitors...
Morning Glory waiting to show...

Last night I opened up this awesome package! Look at how beautiful the artist drew on the name! I immediately recognized the return label and was thrilled to discover a beautiful pair of hand made earrings inside (green to go with my eyes) as well as a copy of a gorgeous watercolor that I have admired!
I love my boyfriend❤️ and I love the work by the artist as well! Thank you Steven and thank you Gwen!

Me, and my fellow fire sign buddies, Kristen and Jen hanging fireside last weekend! I am a campfire kind of gal. I love being near a fire and not only for warmth reasons. I reckon it has something to do with the fact that I am a double fire sign. My sun sign is a fire sign as is my moon sign. Of course, a lot of folks don't put much stock into the planets and stars and that's okay....

It can be hard having a holiday birthday as mine is from time to time. I was born around Thanksgiving. I always loved it though.
This year my son got married on that weekend so I didn't do a lot of celebrating. My sweet beau helped me celebrate in style last night just a few weeks later. He fixed a fabulous meal. Homemade veggie burgers and a blueberry crisp for dessert!
