Bowl of Scraps

There’s a lady who sells these handmade bowls at a farmer’s market I attend on the weekends. They are made from strips of fabric she refers to as scraps. Her display has so many colors and designs it’s difficult to choose, but if that’s… Continue Reading “Bowl of Scraps”

A Faithful Following

I read a post in my Reader this morning by Mama’s Empty Nest. She doesn’t know this, but she inspires me. She’s been Blogging for 10 years, but doesn’t have a huge amount of followers. (2,000ish) To me, that’s inspiring. I’ve been Blogging for… Continue Reading “A Faithful Following”

A Handwritten Note

I woke up this morning, took a glance at my phone and turned it off. Yesterday was not a pretty day at work, so this morning I took some time to manage my state. To let go of yesterday and stand firmly in today.… Continue Reading “A Handwritten Note”

The Cookie Sheet

I saw it at Christmas, but left it. It’s the New Year and I still have money leftover from Christmas. I walked back into the store and bought it. This wasn’t a need, it was a flat out want. It’s red and shiny, which… Continue Reading “The Cookie Sheet”
