Ive started and deleted this blog a few times now...I need to get this out so i can breath. I took on an upholstery project, two actually, a chair and couch set. Ive done stuff like this before. I really like it! its like a big puzzle that i get to work thru and make beautiful!;) well, just about everything that COULD go wrong, did.
I was hesitant to take on another big project right now, because homeschooling is coming up and i have lots to get ready for. Canning season has started and the garden needs me. Th...Read more

She always walked into the neighbors yard and drank out of the pond. That morning she didn't make it back. So I cried. fo...Read more
I don't want to be mad anymore. but I don't want to be nice either.
My flesh is fighting forgiveness.
Done this before, hurt each other. I dont have the energy to fight anymore. Its so much easier to avoid and pretend i dont wonder what your doing as the leaves change colors and fall. When it was done, it was done. I didnt to wish your harm. But I didnt want to lift you up either. i just wanted to cut it all out. I cut you out of everything and tried not to feel like I was missing part of my heart. You suck. Best frie...Read more

My parents always have their Tv on. Even if they are not home, they leave it on "so the dogs wont be lonely". When i was 12, our tv kicked the bucket, it was one of those old wooden framed ones that sat on the floor. I think they were designed to blend in... Well, when it died, my parents couldn't decide on what to get next. Mom wanted a big homemade wooden stand, with shelf space for her collectibles, and dad just wanted mom to be happy:) My uncle Ray said he could make the stand, but it would take a ...Read more

Time seems so strange to me. I cant help but think about hundreds of years ago, and the lives that still tug on the heart strings of so many. the Pangs of love that are not even for my heart to mourn yet i feel them stirring within. How silly of me to assume so much.
Ive always LOVED history. i day dream ALL the time. So much so that I lose perspective on the now. Sometimes I feel as though I have to pinch myself. Where am I...When am I? Among the many lives that have inspired me, some of my favorites are, John Henry Holiday (Do...Read more
