Wow. I can’t even believe that I’ve been posting so consistently. I am laughing!! In this week’s installment: My Visual Nirvana…GLASS!!

I love glass anything….as long as it has color in it! After visiting Murano, Italy many times, I have fallen in love with glass art. I collect glass, one of the few things that I do collect. I DISLIKE dusting, so I don’t do the collectible thing (like those scary dolls or Hummels or whatever!!!), but I am very attracted to the randomness and the play of light with glass artwork. Especially the glasswork from Italy. Yeah, Italy. The country where I’ve traveled to tons of times yet I’ve never had a bad meal there? *big smiles* And yes, I do dust my glass pieces, hehe!

Christmas to Color…by ME!

Gardening is Good for your Soul…

I think my favorite thing to do is gardening. Why? Because when I am doing it, I am not worrying about a thing. I find it highly therapeutic and relaxing, even though I've digging and carrying pails of water around the yard. I've just moved to a new house, and I've...
