A bit of a quiet day in the shop today so it was nice to come home to pretty carrot cake cupcakes Erica made ~ and flowers :)

I hope everyone is having a good weekend.
I'm off to tame a little of my wild garden tomorrow...I can't wait!

Roses and Things

Sorry for my absence! Once again I have been caught up facebooking and have failed to keep my blog up to date.
 Over the past few months I have had renewed interest in roses- growing them, having them in the home and photographing them. I have planted a couple more in the garden too. They are just so beautiful. I have planted many over the years but they have been shaded out and undernourished so I have been trying to be good and rejuvenate them by cutting back around them and feeding them. Fingers crossed that they will grow and thrive and I will be able to fill my home with them once again.
 I have also been playing shop,
 enjoying books,
 having a photography session at least once a week- which I love doing,
 making charms,
 making more charms,
 photographing charms,
and just enjoying life in the beautiful Autumn weather that we have been having.

I hope you're enjoying your Autumn and are getting to do some things that you really enjoy doing.

"Take time to smell the roses"

Wednesday, January 23, 2013 got busy!

Well the end of 2012 has come and gone and it won't be long and we will be at the end of the first month of 2013! 
Life has been busy but I am determined to make time for the little things...that are really the big things. More gardening, cooking and playing house. I love to do this but with running a business I tend to forget that I am allowed to have time to concentrate on home things. I have decided that I MUST make time everyday that I'm not at the shop to play house. Put the work things...charm orders and whatnot out of my head for those hours and have guilt free home time.
I AM definitely going to make the most of my time- even if it is just sitting with a cup of coffee enjoying the beautiful place in which we live : )
