November is a month of reflection for me. Recently, hubby and I took a walk thru the woods. I turned around to see what was behind me, I was surprised by what I saw. It was a whole different view. It occurred to me at that moment, that we shouldn’t be afraid of looking back at what happened in the past. You might be surprised at how far you’ve come. November is the month my boyo collapsed in front of … Continue reading “Reflections”

Time in a Bottle

Soooooo, well,………you see…., let me put it this way….hmmmmm. Ok, how about this? It seems I’ve let so much time go by since I last wrote a blog, I may have forgotten how to do it. No, no, it’s not that(well, not completely at least). excuses excuses…, It’s amazing how time can slip through your fingers isn’t it? Even when it feels like time slowed down to a painful crawl. The reality is, that time moves as it always has … Continue reading “Time in a Bottle”

Stacys Art Studio gets ready for winter

I love the seasons, their changes make me happy. The trees, plants, sky, temperatures and colors change from season to season. I tend to change along with it, inside my house I change out comforters, pillows and curtains. Once I’ve settled on the color of my walls, I try to keep them a neutral color, because I like change so much that I’ve tried to confine those to pillows and fabrics. Things that are easy to change, unlike wall colors … Continue reading “Stacys Art Studio gets ready for winter”

Mornings with Molly…love

Love is a beautiful thing. Love can grow immeasurably, love can give you the strength to endure great pain, and love will help you do things you never thought you would, or could do. Love will keep you from giving up, when things are too hard to face. Recently, our sweet boyo started having a new after affect condition. If you’ve read my blog, you’ll know these are conditions that appear later in life from treatment for  childhood Leukemia. I … Continue reading “Mornings with Molly…love”

A Secret Garden Stage Two

This was the second stage of the secret garden. I thought I’d share a few pictures of this part of the process. I put in some fake grass just to brighten it a bit. I laid in a row of bricks around the edges and then thought that perhaps moss might grow along the little beds….we’ll see…. No furniture as of yet, except for the little foot stool, and the shelf unit that used to be in our old camper, … Continue reading “A Secret Garden Stage Two”

My Studio puts on Her Summer Attire

As I sit at my little desk, writing this post, I’m enjoying watching the rain fall steadily on my mostly finished backyard. When you live in a semi arid desert, rain is highly valued. We tend to have some severe droughts and have been heading into a bad one. However, the summer monsoon rains will sometimes save us. I hope they will be many and strong this year. We already have a major wildfire burning called the Ute fire. It’s … Continue reading “My Studio puts on Her Summer Attire”

A Secret Garden

  Everyone should have a secret garden. Whether it’s a courtyard, patio or window ledge, secret gardens bring joy to your heart. I remember my first secret garden, it was a hidden place among the woods of Wisconsin when I was a little girl. I didn’t realize that it was a secret garden but I knew it was special, so I kept it all to myself, my cat and my books. When my family couldn’t find me, you can be … Continue reading “A Secret Garden”

Little Things

It’s the little things that always make the biggest impact in life and in decorating! As I’ve shared before, I love using painting drop cloths for curtains, and various other things. Lately, I made an addition to the drop cloth curtains in our bedroom. It was a small thing, but made a huge difference. I thought I’d share a few pictures. A few years ago I ran across two beautiful sheer curtain panels in my local second hand store. I … Continue reading “Little Things”

Mornings with Molly-Joy

Joy is my favorite! Yesterday we found out that there’s nothing new wrong with the kiddo’s heart. Relief, relief is even better than joy. I’m not sure that I’ve ever written about the complication, that he’s had with his heart over the last 13 years. It’s something that we choose not to think about, since there’s nothing that can be done about it. About 13 years ago, during a regular checkup they found a clot that is attached to the … Continue reading “Mornings with Molly-Joy”
