Playing with marbles is an all the time favourite in our house. It's one of those toys that never get old. We even have some from my parents when they were children. I love these long lasting and easy things to play with.  Here we hooked a self carved wooden board onto our Pikler-Dreieck. It's plain on the other side so when turning it around they can use it as a ramp for themselves, balls or their little cars.  #selfmadetoys

Made these for the Fall season. The large pumpkin is a carving one and the others are all pie pumpkins. The initials are monogram stickers and I made the bows and hot glued them on. Of course making the ribbon for the "T" for my daughter pumpkin a little different that the ribbon for the boys.

On the one hand, yeah, for sure. I get it. On the other hand, reaching a new stage in my own aging life, I've come to realize or believe, if you will, that what this says is a worthy aspiration... but a goal for your life? Take a look then at history at how much has really been left behind and tell me about all those wasted lives? No, I think the goal is simply to carve out a little happiness, joy, good-will in your community, and make the most of your experiences. Go easy on us, eh?

INTERVIEW WITH ATTITUDE MAGAZINE (UK)Mans, you had tried twice before to go to Eurovision with the amazing songs Cara Mia and Hope and Glory. Did you think you’d be third time lucky?  To be honest, I was totally shocked that I won Melodifestivalen because I thought one of the other contestants was going to win. So when I saw I was getting all these 12 points, I was shocked.But why? The song is amazing. I was shocked because I never win anything…Awww, are you saying you a loser?(laughing)…

I made these little clay kitties yesterday. I'm taking a tile making class at the local art center and my last day is tomorrow. But I had some clay left and I decided to try and use it all up, so I made these. Now they need to be fired and glazed. I'm thinking one could be black with some white patches and the other could be be more white with orange and yellow and brown spots. Or I might just make them both one color. Idk. I get to see how my tiles turned out tomorrow too so I'll be sure to…

It isn't often that I post a personal image or write an essay but this one is very special.  While visiting St Nectan's Glen this week my boys were struggling with missing their dad.  We discussed the ribbons fairy stacks and carved stones and how they were placed to remember special people.  This caught their 9 and 13 year old imaginations and they built this gorgeous fairy stack all on their own while I was busy taking photographs.  It had to be higher than any others there and was…

Vintage Eskimo Artisan pendant necklace wolf howls This was purchased by my parents along with a ton if other Eskimo Inuit and native art and jewelry you can find in our etsy a little less on one of their sled team runs. They had a pack of wolves and Huskies (still have Huskies) that they competitively raced all over in the 60s 70s & 80s. I am not sure if this dime sized little beauty is carved bone or stone but my guess is some kind of jasper. It has a gold tones wire wrap frame ending in…
