In the muddy mud pit
She's crafty - and she's just my type

Random thoughts

I think I may have spent more time outside than in today. V had two baths to wash off the mud. It was a good day, but my feet really hurt. We need chairs for outside.

We have a dogwood. It doesn't look very healthy. I need to see if there's anything I can do for it.

I've unpacked a lot of the kitchen, but there's so much more to do. There aren't enough hours in the day - or I need too much sleep. Yeah, that's it.

We also have violets scattered throughout the backyard. Oh how I love violets.

This house is bigger and grander than any I've ever lived in. That's not to say it's that big or that grand, just that I'm used to living in tiny, cramped places that don't have any drawers in the kitchens or bathrooms. It feels like I'm staying over at a friend's.

Today, V and I put out a new bird feeder. Chickadees were chomping on seeds within 10 minutes. That was pretty cool.

Oh, violets make me so happy. They bring back such wonderful memories for me! Your processing is so cool on these images!

How wonderful that you are setting up your home! It is so much work. And a bird feeder! Great! I wish you lots of love and happiness in your new home!


Yay for new place! And lots of storage space.

Don't buy garden tools new. Look on Craigslist; you can find lots of useful stuff cheap or free.

Just checking in to see how things are going. How perfect that you have violets! Love the barefoot-in-the-mud photos, and the blue hat is fab. :-)


Sounds wonderful, hope you will be very happy in your new home. x

How exciting to be getting settled in! Your pictures are very attractive. Did you do a treatment or effect on them? They look like a linen.


Maya, I'm very excited for you, and I can't wait to visit you in your new home!


Yay for space. As you can probably tell from my last post, I'm a big fan of SPACE!

But give it a year and tell me how large it feels. Hee!

And your photos are wonderful, wonderful, wonderful.


Congratulations on the new place it sounds wonderful.

I love V's muddy hands a cute hat in the previous post too.


Absolutely take your time unpacking. it feels good to get it all done, but it feels better when you know your place for everything is just as it should be.

I'm excited to see pictures :)

And yes, craigslist is the place to find stuff now.


Welcome home my friend!


I found you a few weeks ago, here on the internet... I adore your blog, and am glad that you'll be continuing!


Aren't days where more time is spent outside than inside wonderful! I'm glad to hear about your new house!

spread your wings

sounds wonderful. I wish you much happiness in your new home.

I think the dogwood's just haven't fully opened yet. I always worry about mine and then the next thing I know I'm saying they are more beautiful than the year before.


I love your violets and long for them. As a child in Wisconsin, they were easy to find in the spring. As a grown-up with children, they are tough to find in suburban Washington. My grandfather picked a bouquet of violets for my grandmother when she gave birth to my mother. How sweet.


Wow, these pictures are gorgeous. Especially that first one. I couldn't tell if it was a texture or some cloth.
