december plan....

                                 tidy up
                                then play

    tidy up -  i am not a good housekeeper, so i'm not
    gonna say ( clean ) .  in a book I read they kept a 
    tidy house, which made me feel good and i can 
    just picture all kinds of cute there.

    walk - surely I can walk 30 minutes a day!! i'm workin
    up to 10,000 steps a day, and I know it's not impossible.

    then play - though some play has to stop. stayin on the 
    internet for hours on pinterest, on facebook, on instagram
    which means an awful lot of sitting. so the play i'm talkin 
    about is knitting, crocheting, drawing or being crafty in any 

   my motivation is all the crafty plans I have in my head
   so I started today

   tidy up


   then play

working in my room...


    i moved around my art room and bought an ott lamp
    so I could see better

    i tried it out this morning, sewing up my granny 

    then sewing the rows on

    while i was in there I took some pictures 

    it's pretty in here

    with all my favorite things

    and all my favorite colors

    books and toys

    quite a nice place to work

    And listen to pandora 

    makes me smile

a new look.....

sometimes you just have to change things up, don't you
new colors and fonts are sooo much fun
i think this is just the beginning

anyway.... isn't this the prettiest wreath?
i saw it at my favorite shop in town...the vintage rose...

these were outside
i haven't ever seen this many of them together
such a nice color

at home I found some doodle bug holes
but had no luck stirring them up

a random post for a cloudy monday

stuff I did this weekend

rode the four wheeler 
down country roads
and on the farm
through pretty woods

picked some pears along the way

welcoming fall on a nice cool day

then home to cozy up and crochet

walking again

   it feels so good to be walking again
   we have lots of pretty places for it around here
   a tree covered track
   where I found these mushrooms

   a cool flowing river
   with camper trailers to drool over
   and fishermen to watch

   and today we walked by the lake
   close to the edge of the water
   and through the shady trees

    I'm looking forward to next weekend's views
