A moon in the afternoon

I have resolved to quit complaining about grey days.  I am even trying to become inspired by them.  Here is an ornament I made today for my shop 

DSCN0418 Yes it’s gray, but it has crystals that seem to find light anywhere.  I really like how it turned out.

I will also be putting this Affirmation Mirror in my shop.  It is a little pick-me-up every time you look at it.

DSCN0410 I read that you should put plastic wrap over the mirror when taking its pic…hmmm, not so sure.


This was a busy weekend…the first of 3 nutcracker performances…

again, Mia dances…I just drive:)

Mia dances 3 dances in the performance.  Snow, Tre-pak (sp?) and of course Waltz of the Flowers.

DSCN0348 The pictures turned out pretty lousy, but this is Snow.

DSCN0381 This is when the dainty and sweaty ballerinas were greeting the guests.

Speaking of snow, it did.  This is out of the car window on the way home.  Pretty, even I had to admit.



Oh!  Guess what!  I lost 9 inches on Sunday.

DSCN0402 I think I going back to have more of the stuff removed.  It almost looks like a grown out hair cut, doncha think?



Last of all, one more ramble…

It’s never a good week end til you spend money!

DSCN0399 Her name is Grace.  Isn’t she lovely?

It is my first Sid Dickens.  I always wanted to own one.  Well, truthfully, I want them all.  But Mary is my first choice and she feels right at home, I hope.



I just realized…THIS IS MY 100th POST!!!  I will have to think of someway to celebrate!  I’ll have a spot of wine.  I’ll let you know what I dream up for all (or some, or one) of you :)

OK, you made it to the finish line!

Cheers and a big, warm hug, Lisa


  1. Hello Lisa. Now I had my hair cut just the same length as yours. Correction, I cut it! Now it has grown a bit I like it better! But I think it suits you as it is. I always feel like having mine cut short and going grey, but always chicken out.
