Well, hello!

i do hope you all had a fabulous Easter! We had family come down and it was so fun!
Other than that, I've been very boring and just trying to work and keep my etsy shop's fun but can be time consuming. I've added a few goodies today, the album above which I know I'll probably regret selling, but can't keep it all!

a cute wood caddy to store some things in your studio.....

well, what can I say about these? They're just plain fun!

and a sweet little vintage measuring tape made in Japan. Hoping you all are having a fun week so far, and that wherever you are that the sun is shining!
xoxo, Gail

What does happiness and contentment look like to you?

for me right now it looks like this.....beautiful white cherry blossoms on my tree in my backyard....

on days like today they look like heaven against the blue sky...even though it's still cold outside...

some days i tend to over think things, do you do that too? when the world is too much with us?
it doesn't seem right to do that on a day when the sun is shining and everyone in my family is "mostly" healthy.....tonight we're having one of my favorite "meals", nachos, but because we're observing Lent, there is no meat which doesn't bother me at all, I've never been about the meat.
For me it's the guacamole, sour cream, salsa, cheese, beans, etc......making myself hungry.
Tonight is probably a night to watch a "calgon, take me away" type movie, snuggle under warm covers, say my prayers, then drift off.....sometimes i think too much and worry WAY too much!
today is one of those days.......tomorrow is a new day....i do hope you all have a lovely Spring weekend and do something you enjoy.....:)

Out of the mouths of babes.......

So yesterday my dd (10yo) was looking at my blog and announced "Wow Mom, you haven't blogged since April  1st"! And so I said "I know, I just haven't had much to say!" which is true...I've been working and cleaning, working and cleaning, kind of sounds like drudgery, right?
Actually, it's not really that bad, things are just kind of limping along but I have been keeping my Etsy shop filled up, including the items above, all just listed minutes ago.
Our weather has been typical Spring weather in Oregon, I was taking these photos out on our back patio, and within 15 minutes it was hailing!  Oh well, not much we can do about the weather, right?
Hope you're having a nice, balmy Spring day where you are!
