Sometimes in the pain {you find your most tender heart}

I don’t usually write about my parent’s divorce. Coming home does that to me. Far away you don’t see the day to day pain. You don’t see the details. You don’t feel the details. It is easier where I stand back in Colorado. Far, far away from where the hurt is.  But I guess it can follow me there too. One of my closest friends has said that a divorce (especially a divorce caused by an affair) is a death …

Link Up {Show Off Your Goods}

My friend Jen has a fun link up today. I am pretty lazy with linky parties so I thought I would break out of my shy shell…hmmmm Jen’s post today is all about “Show Us Your Shoppe”. Because we have the whole shop on sale to make room for new merchandise I don’t have a ton to show but I DO have crazy low prices to show and three brand new sale items.

Summer of Art {won’t you join me?}

(photo taken by my rock star, photographer friend Tiffany Kirchner-Dixon) I have left this summer wide open. I wanted to make sure that we had time to do more hiking (our favorite family activity), work on the house, work in the yard, read books with the kids and MAKE ART!!! Really, really, really make art. Sometimes the business of business is…well….business! I am giddy just thinking of the paint and messy hands in my future. If your heart flutters a …

Pretty {For Pretty’s Sake}

While I was in California I received the most thoughtful gift. A woman that I had never met in person gave me a gift that I will treasure because without even knowing me…she knew me. We both have a love of vintage clothing and design. She gave me a collection of vintage collars. I have no idea how I am going to display them but I will display them. They are intricate, delicate and stunning. Pretty…just for pretty’s sake. We …
