Thank You! Thank You!

There were close to 40,000 in circulation (20 or more of which are in my apartment, 1 in my car, 5 at my parent’s house, 2 at my desk, 1 to be framed, 2 to send in the mail, 1 […]


“Winter is the time for comfort…it is the time for home.”  – Edith Sitwell Snowflakes.  Hot cider.  Railroad insulator glass jars illuminated by holiday lights.  Corn husk angels.  Gaudy old ornaments from great aunts mixed with falling apart crafted ornaments […]
