You have the any moment

“If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself but to your own estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.”

I want to save this house..........

This little house in Story, Wyoming just begs for me to fix it up and make it "alive" again!
Horse shoes above the door bring luck to the home!
All of the window have cute shutters and I love turquoise!
Kitchen has original cupboards with original smoke damage!
Scarey wiring with interesting instructions!!
Peeling paper and great wood floors.......
And frightened look on the face of Renaissance Soul Mate lets you know I'm serious about aquisition!! Going to wait til first of the year to make an offer though!!

Best Motivation Video Ever

I got where I am by trying, trying, imagining, inventing, trying, Mom always said, "Try, you'll never know if you don't try but will always wonder too.". Thanks Mom for giving me my try!!

Flicker reload!

Originally uploaded by sugar++
One of my favorite things to do on Flicker is go to interesting photos in the last 7 days and click the "reload" button til I find something I love! Today it was this!

They came, three by three!

Any one wanting to claim this crew?? One dog......two goats!! At large!! Just trip trapping down our lane on a Sunday afternoon. By Monday, I decided to post their picutres on Facebook! And it looked like this!

"Cmon people!! You would notice if these guys were missing from your home!! Escapee #1, looks innocent but is truly the leader of goat gang!!"

Accomplise (sp) number two, larger of the two goats and happily hoofing around and eating flowers, trees, etc!!

And, ths smallest member of the gang, but probably the most dangerous!! Follows the previous two but answers to no one!! Please share this all around the Facebook, as children are becoming quickly attached and you know who everyone will be mad at in the end!! End the crime spree of the goat gang on Highway 14!!

 And it ended with this!!
Goat gang rescued!! Thanks to all who shared and forwarded dog + 2 goats on the loose! Their owner called and they have been picked up and spirited home.....but they really liked it here and I'm sure now that they know the route they'll be by for visits!!

After I tweaked my bathing arena....I moved on to the jewelry.....a few gypsy shoots had rendered the site a mess!!
I keep all of my bigger pieces and perfume in this old medicine cabinet. I kinda have a thing for those!
An old rake keeps all of my bracelets and bangles ready to jingle jangle.....I like a little noise with my decor!!
Two old glove forms keep my rings and the jewelry box next to them holds masses of earrings!
Not sure what this was originally for, but it twists and turns with all of my necklaces now!
I wear my jewelry if it is visible all of the time plus when it's all grouped together, it's ART!!

Brave Girls

Signed, sealed delivered I'm going to be a Brave Girl!! I've never thought of myself as not brave, but I often let the tide of others needs sweep me away and what I need or want gets set to the side until everyone else settles in. Soooooo, I'm taking the 6 week online Soul Restoration class from Brave Girls, , starting in January and then to get me out of my box even more, I'm traveling to McCall, Idaho the middle of July for a 4 day retreat with other Brave Girls,!! It's time for some changes and I'm gonna make them happen!!

A little bathtub tweaking!

Bathtub area Before: Blah, blah, blah....

And Bathtub are After!!
Two coats of turquoise paint!
Handmade vintage light pink medicine cabinet, favorite piece!
Silver, turquoise and pink accessories and a mirror.

A bucket full of tea lights and vintage silver molds to reflect candle light and this is a bathtub oasis!!
I'll take some pictures in the dark when it is all lit up and bubblized!
