As a shop owner, and sometimes more interesting to people, a year round resident in Door County, I get a lot of questions about what my house looks like, what do I do in my spare time, and is it hard to live here year round with it being such a seasonal spot.
I can't say that I'm all that private as an individual, but I don't really feel the need to put my stuff out there, you know just to show off.
Sometimes I have to admit that it irks me a bit when people find it hard to believe anyone could possibly live here year round, but I won't go there today.
One day last summer, I decided to share what my life really is like outside of work. My husband, John agreed to follow me around after work one day and take some simple pictures of what it's like to just be me.
Getting ready to do some gardening.
Just put me in the kitchen and I can work some serious magic.
Of cousre, we grow our own food. All organic, and we plan our daily menu's as to what's ripe in the garden.
I'm so thankful for good friends who help tweak my outfit when I feel like I have nothing in my closet worth wearing.
Actually, that's Robin of Magnolia Pearl and I dream of floating around my neck of the woods in anything she makes... the Pig, the bank, post office, the Bowl... you name it I wouldn't care.
I have noticed she does wholesale accounts. For some reason I have a feeling her clothing could be on the high end side.
Any one want me to check into it and wear it with me?
Just let me know.
Then go see it all at MagnoliaPearl.com

I was perusing blog land when I noticed a new post by Altered Ever After.
Candyce and Jill had a fabulous booth at our Vintage Market, they have been featured in numerous magazines and are about the cutest and sweetest Mother daughter duo I've seen.
Candyce had posted pictures of some of her new Valentine works, and mentioned that they needed a good home.
I'll take one! (Sure I said it more than once).
I thought she was joking.
Look what arrived the other day!No details are left out, even in shipping.
It's hard to really see the details with the lack of a great camera, but I love the old safety pin, the little tag that says "hugs", all a top a vintage building block.
Thanks, Candyce... you made my day!
