You Won't Believe What Was waiting For Me

There are days, when you can't help but laugh.  This is an actual photo of my mailbox, when I came home.

Now you may wonder, what happened?  As did I.

But I would rather hear what you think might have, or should have caused the changes.  Entertain all of us please, with your answers.

Who Is Leading Who?

If you want to see one of the cutest short videos of a tiny boy and his dog, watch this one.  It makes me smile every time I see it.

Whimsical Bracelets!

I am packing up my glass art bracelets for the Gathering in Rochester NY, and thought I'd show you one of my bracelet cuffs that I will have available at the Bazaar.  They are all one of a kind and whimsical, of course.  I will have my beads as well, some sculptures and new styles.

This morning, I am debating whether to make one of the bracelets with a breakfast theme.  Whether it is bacon and eggs or one with pancakes, I am still on the fence.  What do you think?

From Alpine WY to Atlanta GA

Goodbye Wyoming, Hello Atlanta.

What a wonderful trip filled with family.  From my week in Cheyenne with my Mom and sister, to my days South of Jackson on a ranch for my niece Brooke's wedding and all those crazy Lambersons.

The ranch electricity is run by propane.  If you are a glass person like me, you know how we are pretty well versed with it.  It was interesting that the little tiny lights in our cabin were run on it and we used a lighter to ignite it.  And as we are always cautioned about ventilation, our lights were on very little.  I could smell it and that didn't make me relaxed.  Our flashlights got a good work out though!.

And daylight was beautiful.  We were nestled in a valley with mountains and nature surrounding us.  No cell phones or Internet but dozens of hummingbirds.  I made it through 4 days of no Facebook or online Scrabble without getting the shakes from withdrawals, but I am happy to be back in Atlanta for a few days.  Rochester NY will be my next stop. Looking forward to the International Society of Glass Beadmakers' Gathering.

Could This Mirror Have Started It All?

I have always loved this mirror at my parents' house.  It was hung in my childhood bedroom of course after I left.  So I get to enjoy it now.  I wonder if it had anything to do with my love of glass and my career.  Do you know what started you on your career?  Would love to hear about it.

Sunny Western Days

I am enjoying sunny days visiting relatives, the Botanic Gardens and getting a taste of the Rocky Mountains of my youth.  It's so different from Atlanta.  

I am not sure if I would be as comfortable living in a small town again, but it is really fun for visiting.  And I love the large expanse of sky.  

If you could, would you wish to change locations and live somewhere else?  I would love to know.  Catch you later.

Good Hair Day

You know it's going to be a good hair day, when you see a Giant Schnauzer's photo on my blog.  This is Clark and he belongs to Adam, who cuts my hair.  It sure makes the day nice, when greeted by him and getting fixed up!

Social Goats

Normally, I don't write about goats.  Kids perhaps, but not goats.  But yesterday, as a surprise gift for our wedding anniversary, we went to The Social Goat Bed and Breakfast in Atlanta.

Yes, they really had goats in the city.  Note: Example A. "Tallulah"

And they had Tom Turkeys

And also roosters, who crow waaaaaaY too early on a Saturday morning, chickens and cats.  But they also make wonderful subjects for photos.

And I also enjoyed some of the surrounding vegetation.
Don't know what kind of flower this is, but it was about as tall as I am!  Anyone know?

The B&B itself was really nice.  We left early this morning to return to the 'burbs for previous  appointments.  But I'd be happy to return sometime to the city and all the animals.

Hope your 4 th was fun!

See you soon!

Back Massage is Child's Play

What a great idea! A tee shirt with a road or train rails on the back... you get a massage with the wheels.  (choose the toys carefully) and your kids or grandkids have a fun little track for their enjoyment.  You can find this t-shirt and one for train buffs here.

This reminds me of years ago when my husband would read bed time stories to the kids.  Once in a while, the kids would tip toe out of their rooms and tell me, "Shhhh, I got Dad to sleep".  That would make me laugh.

Hope this week is filled with family and friends.
