In 2015 I moved to Southern California, back to where I am from, with my little family. It was a wonderful time, California treated us well. I started this blog, very casually. I have created and lost many blogs over the years, as I have been online so long now. This one is still here, I am still here, and its a wonderful life. I will continue to share, and hope to even more. Back in New Orleans! So much to see. I did not give this site a themed name, other than my own, so it could carry on. And here we are. I will add more soon! Happy New Year!
I took my daughter thrifting today. I have to first say that my nine year old daughter actually does not know much about curse words because she has been mostly home schooled and an only child. I have done my best lol…. but I helped her get this cup off a shelf, did not read the words. And she holds it up and says “Look Mom, I’m the f—–g Birthday Girl!” ? omg so I had to teach her about the f word and not to say it. I am still laughing to myself. I was so caught off guard there.
She is home schooled lol.
My nine year old daughter just had a visit from the tooth fairy and got $20! So I took her to Five Below which is like tween paradise and her money goes a little further. It is such a fun store. I took lots of pics. I really like their t-shirts. What would you buy at Five Below?
Can you tell what this is? Four glow catchers hanging in the dark, side angle. I did not take a lit shot because this is my laundry room. ? Making my way through this dark universe with my glowies. Somehow. lol
I finally found the perfect oversized coffee cup. This is about as large as I can go. It feels like I am drinking from a pyrex. lol! But it is so stylish and looks great with these fuschia flower cuttings from garden. The mug is filled with organic decaf and chocolate almond milk. Yum. ☕️?
I have created a new thing, the Glow Catcher™️, and have been busy making them! They take forever lol. My latest is this one, Glow Catcher™️ #11 ?✨✨?⭐️?✨✨?
You can find my glow catchers in my shop here: Glow Catchers
This is one of my new pieces. I took a vintage glass trinket or candle holder and created a glowing galaxy effect. I added a vintage filigree star and antique silver crescent moon, and sealed them in with resin and a dash of holographic glitter. This will be in my shop at glowies soon at this link: Glowies Decor
My plums are ripening nicely. Their rosy color blushing across their juicy skin, soon they will be ready to eat. They are going to be so juicy and sweet. Not pictured, my neighbors peach tree hanging into my backyard. It is a large branch, heavy with juicy little peaches. Waiting and checking on them daily! ????
I just love Hobby Lobby. It is a huge store filled with rows and rows of colorful, shiny holiday decor. I was amazed by the shelves full of different Nutcracker doll statues. They had pirates, fairies, snowmen, and more. I took some pics and also made a video. They are so adorable!
I am so busy these days, life needs to slow down! In the meantime, here is yet another new blog. This site will feature random things like my painting and art, glow in the dark jewelry, and my new apparel and home accessories line. Also my dog. And life in Southern California. Life is good. 🙂
