Busy, busy...all in a days work...









All in a days work you say...never a dull moment...well I try to keep myself busy and out of trouble (yeah right). So this was my last necklace I put together. I love using rosary beads and elements of Nature, simple statements, with the use of old wire, not silver, not gold, just wire. It has the look of old fencing to me, I just love the organic feel of it, the look of capturing Nature.
So I finally got my behind a movin' and made some ol' timey soaps, lavender essential oil and buds, wafts through the air in my house...I love making soaps, especially when it is loved by so many others. These are great big uneven chunks, just like Granny would'a cut, wasn't important to be perfect, just handy.

Then the fall-scented candles, fireplace in a can, with the light hint of the fireplace and a sweet perfume, vaguely resembling a man's rugged, scented cologne, but the combination is wonderful and brings the warmness of fall into the shut-up home...'tis the season.
And lastly, two beautiful Cocker Spaniels...these beautiful brothers were a pleasure to groom, well-trained and dapper-dans, they know how to pose.
Ok...now can I play...I think I shall sit with my furry friend warming my lap and read an early print of a book I picked up at Good Will, 'The Secret Garden' by Frances Hodgson Burnett...at least till I fall asleep in my chair...goodnight...

I think you deserve a good nights sleep-that's a lot of work output for one day. I don't get that much done in a week!
