My Latest Creation

I started working on this necklace about a month ago and it just wasn't coming together. But this week, I felt like finishing it and I think it turned out really nice!

We just returned from Alaska and what a trip it was! The weather was unexpectedly beautiful. We were prepared for rain, but all we got was sunshine! No complaints about that.

It was chilly near the glaciers but in the towns we enjoyed very warm 60's.

OH FALL IS ALMOST HERE!!! It is my favoritte season. These are a couple of things I've made recently. The floral skirt is from fabric in an earlier post. I just bought the cardigan yesterday at Target. The solid green is a copy of a skirt I bought several years ago at Gap. It is pumpkin orange and I found it on a sale rack.

The Dining Room

We have been in our home for 5 years now. Our dining room is a room we've neglected. I would pile boxes in there. Logan's science lab stuff was strewn in a corner. The room was in a constant state of "mess". We didn't have a "real" table and chairs to put in there and we often joked that we'd get a real dining set "when we grew up". We've been in an organizing phase over the past year and this room was on the list to fix up. So over the weekend I cleaned it up and moved the furniture in there that we had been using in our breakfast room and MAN it just really set that room! I had to take a picture and share it. I guess this means Todd and I have grown up. I look forward to hosting some grown up meals in there.

Little Stinkers

Todd was out taking care of our chickens when along came a momma skunk and her 6 babies!  Notice the tails sticking up in the top photo.
