We have a small studio apartment, but it has a wonderful deck overlooking the marina. I'm already looking forward to those mornings when I will take my coffee out to watch the sunrise. Sue

Mike just came from the post office with a small package. Good things always come in small packages. It's jewlery from Lisl Hector. Thank-you Lisl. These sterling silver pendants can be customized with a word, letter, phrase, or picture of your choice. Sue

What a perfect time of year to be unpacking these new beeswax and soy candles. It's twelve degrees this morning, but I feel like I'm in the garden with fragrances like hyacinth, green tea and rhubarb, magnolia, garden cucumber, lavender barreme, and lemon sage. Sue

I'm not giving up on my blog yet!! It was only eight days ago that I took my first picture and wrote my first post. It seems like forever. I'm feeling nervous about my blog. Nervous about what to say and how to say it. Maybe tomorrow it will be easier. It's only been eight days. Sue

This morning I decided I wanted the one hundred pound cement garden finial in the window at the store. I thought about it when I went to bed last night, but I thought it would probably be too heavy. It looks great in the window and it was really really heavy!

Mike works in the shop on Sunday. It's my day off.....unless someone stops in to buy ribbon. This causes my husband to panic. He calls and I walk down to measure and cut the ribbon. I love ribbon and I love Mike, so don't worry , you can always buy ribbon on Sunday.

I want to thank David. He has given so much of his time and every ounce of his patience to help me with my blog. I can't even remember how to find my blog when I get up in the morning! Thank-you to my daughters, Mary and Sarah, for pushing me to creep into the twenty-first century. " YOU CAN DO IT MOM!"
