Facebookin',shoes and sharks

Facebook been berry berry good to me. (Old SNL joke).

I have reconnected with some old friends and family members of the foster kind.
Also some old classmates. One of my classmates from my time at Oak Hill Academy boarding school and I are doing a seed swap. She actually owns a tree farm and we got to talking about my greenhouse and heirloom seeds.
Today, this came for me and it is just the bestest package of seed I have ever recieved.
Look at all those little envelopes filled with future deliciousness. There are fruit tree sedds, nut tree seeds, herbs and vegetables. And some flowers. She also sent a bag of black walnuts to eat, and some of her favorite recipes to use them in.
And a sweet card with a pup and a kitty on it. Thank you so much Elaine. I'm so happy to have gotten in touch.

Went to the big city Tuesday and bought these on clearance. I'm rockin' now baby.
Danckins, hey for 11 bucks I'll teeter around like I've been drinkin' till I get used to them, heck I teeter around for a lot less than that deal.

Okay now ya gotta hand it to this guy, He lost his arm, probably to a shark. Now did he just mope around feeling like "oh I lost my arm, I'm gonna hide my hideous stump?" Nooooo
He totally OWNS that shark !

Erma Sez......

"These earrings look so juicy, I could just pop them in my mouth".

A few months ago I was flipping through a beading magazine and saw an ad for these lucite beads that just popped off the page. The color was so rich and vibrant.

I immediately thought "I wonder if I can get them in a rainbow pack".
And golly gee if they did not have them packed just like that.
Orange, blue,deep pink, light pink,green,yellow and white.
Bad thing was they have a minimum order or they throw an extra charge on there, and their shipping was high. But I had to have them so I ordered. They are gorgeous.
Good thing is, I have been seeing other lucites that are pretty juicy too.
They are fat beads, but being lucite, they are light. Even when paired with all brass findings as these are.

Erma is sporting "Orange ya glad to see me"? in the first photo. And in the second she models, "Lollipop Hearts".

One World One Heart Blog Event

CLOSED. Heidi # 142 from Digital Misfit is the winner of the door prize.

It's that time of year again peeps, time to wing our way around the blogosphere. Stop in and look around. Introduce yourself and say something about each others blog. A worldwide event to bring us bloggers a bit closer and to share a piece of each others hearts.

Lisa over at A Whimsical Bohemian has generously hosted this event each year and this will be the fifth and final year. So please try to visit as many blogs as you can, and please visit HERE to read the rules about this event and a link to all the fabulous blogs all ready to be visited.

Here is a bit about what we are doing :

"One World One Heart is a worldwide event for bloggers only. It gives all those who blog a chance to meet and mingle and form connections with those they may not have otherwise met from all over the world. In the past 4 years this event has grown to over 1,000 participants with lasting friendships (and even one love connection) formed along the way. Think of it as a GIGANTIC open house allowing you to travel without ever leaving your home........going from blog to blog(in various countries) seeing the wonder each one has created and meeting all the fabulous people behind those blogs. As a bonus each blogger participant will offer up a "door prize or prizes"....just for dropping by, saying hello and seeing their world. It's really that easy."- Lisa

Last year there were hundreds of blogs signed up you could visit and I got to a few hundred but could not make it to every one, this year I have a personal challenge to try again.

Sooo please look around my humble blog, I took a bit of a break from posting for awhile, but I am back.
My blog generally deals with our life out here in the woods. We have 4 Jack Russells, and there is my husband Larry and me, Diane.
We live in a house the two of us built and we try to live as richly and frugally as possible.
I am an artist and I also design and create jewelry. I love to cook, although I am a low carber mostly now. We also have a garden every year and I grow in my greenhouse also.

For my fellow bloggers I am sharing a chance to win this necklace, "Have a Little Heart"... thank you for stopping by and please leave a comment about my blog to be entered for a chance to be picked by random number generator. Please be sincere in your comment, and please do not cut and paste the same "hello, I like your blog, bye" comment on each blog.
We be VISITIN' don'tcha know.
Oh, and if your contact info is not active on your profile, leave it in your comment....let the winging around commence...

Teddy Tucker has settled in

Teddy has a name we didn't even know about. Last summer when we got him, the vet handed me a little envelope with his tags in it. I didn't look at them until a few weeks ago when I thought I should put his shot dates on the calender.
Inside I found an ID tag with "Teddy Tucker" engraved on it. hahaha Little Teddy Tucker is what we call him now.
He has settled in very nicely.

I've been working on some items for the shop and finished this today.
I love old watch parts.
This has small pearls, tourmaline rondelles and metallic seed beads.
