Day 31 – Collectables

Day 31 - Collectables

Once again…  Mt. St. Helen’s ash glass.  Shiny.  And that is all I have to say about it.


Day 22 – Circles

Day 22 - Circles

Today is a milestone in my beautiful daughter’s life.  She has officially stepped onto the first rung of the teenage ladder.  It is bittersweet for me, as it is just one more step closer to her adulthood.  But for now, while I have her close, I will continue to guide her, to love her and to appreciate every moment, good or bad.

Happy birthday, to my sweet girl.

Day 14 – Jewelry

Day 14 - Jewelry

I could bring You Jewels — had I a mind to — by Emily Dickinson

I could bring You Jewels — had I a mind to —
But You have enough — of those —
I could bring You Odors from St. Domingo —
Colors — from Vera Cruz –Berries of the Bahamas — have I —
But this little Blaze
Flickering to itself — in the Meadow —
Suits Me — more than those —

Never a Fellow matched this Topaz —
And his Emerald Swing —
Dower itself — for Bobadilo —
Better — Could I bring?

Today has been a day of distraction.  Sparkly baubles; shiny gold; gleaming silver.  It was hard to ignore the call of the Shiny while I was at work and I “mostly” ignored the temptation.  Mostly.  And when I got home, photo after photo of a plethora of gilt gorgeousness for my eyes to feast one.  I love A365….
