Window box ideas 2017


This is a post from a few years ago, but it was so spring-like this weekend, that it has me dreaming about my window boxes again.

Paper Roses


On my quest for goodies to fill the shelves of the shop, sometimes I see things that make me go "Hmmmm...."

Mrs. C's book report for kiddoes and tweens

Today's book selections are for the kids. (Now that I'm working in an elementary library, I have found that things I loved to read as a kid (Richard Peck, Beverly Cleary, and Susan Beth Pfeffer) aren't necessarily what kids want to read now. (Disclaimer: Peck and Pfeffer are still writing today, but the books they write now are vastly different than the books they wrote then...Are You in the House Alone, anyone?)

Pantone's color of 2017




When I was a kid, I was a little bit obsessed with houseplants. I'm not sure why, but I remember there was a lady in town who had a Wandering Jew plant that grew all over one wall of her living room.

It was all at once both fabulous and creepy.

Why Can't We?




Friends, I have wanted oh-so-much to write about the fracas that encompasses all our lives in some form or fashion as of late.

But it's not my job to tell you that I am compelled to be the female Rodney King (why can't we all just get along?) and so I am reposting something from a looooong time ago. It's a Valentine's Day post, but I think it's time to think about noticing and relishing the little things...that upon reflection, are not so little after all.
