My 6 year old's life ambition is to become a knight. He wants to battle bravely and ride a loyal steed to protect his kingdom. He's created an alter-ego dubbed The Green Knight, who stars in all of my son's stories and songs. We wanted our son to have a memorable 6th birthday and we… Continue reading The Dining Room: Medieval Times
I started an experiment this year to see how profitable a little online used book shop could be for me. My goal was to make more money than I spent and to only sell books that I'd want to own. I didn't know if it would be easy to find enough books to run a… Continue reading The Reading Room: The Little Shop In The Big Woods
Source: myvintagemending.blogspot.com via Jessica on Pinterest Welcome, dear friends, to another month! It's been a surprisingly pleasant month for me despite my dislike for warm weather or summer clothing. It's been surprisingly pleasant, even though I expected to become really depressed about Father's Day, and I wasn't sure if I'd be able to celebrate… Continue reading The Atrium: Welcome to June
And it's May already! Hello! I haven't forgotten you, but I've been busy, a bit, a little, a little bit, but not really. What really happened is that we adopted this cat. My husband and I have both owned really lovely cats. These former cats were gentle and sweet and calm and really very dignified… Continue reading The Atrium: Welcome to May!

He likes to hunt and he'll play fetch for hours, dutifully returning incomplete knitting pieces that we throw… Continue reading The Kids Room: The New Cat
I can't over-emphasize how tiny my home is. It's very tiny. Very. And for the last few years, I've been searching for the best, most attractive way to keep my VIP WIPs close at hand. I tried to use fabric bags, but those always seemed to come open and there was no way to organize… Continue reading The Craft Room: My New Work in Progress Bag
Greetings, earthlings! And welcome to February. I hope you all had a wonderful Groundhog Day! For me, it was a day to look outside my hole and see where I wanted to move next. So, instead of writing, I’ve been on the move; getting things packed, getting things moved, and unpacking them again. My life… Continue reading The Atrium: Welcome to February
For Christmas, my younger son asked for cookbooks. So we purchased two of the Mollie "Moosewood" Katzen's cookbooks for very young children, Salad People, and Pretend Soup. He tries to make something every day from the cookbooks. We usually have most of the ingredients that he needs, but when we don't, he improvises. He calls it,… Continue reading The Kids Room: Salad People and One Tricked Recipe
Welcome to 2013! I'm so happy to see you! How was your year? Mine was terrible, just terrible. Well, not completely terrible, but some pretty unhappy things happened and I was too wrapped up in them to be as active as I hoped to be in the virtual world. But it's a new year and… Continue reading Happy New Year!
