Dusting Off The Cobwebs - March 13, 2018

Lately I've had the urge to blog again. I logged onto my blog and took a trip down memory lane. It was then that I decided that I'd dust off the cobwebs and restart this machine. I'm not sure if I will have a blogging schedule or if I will write when the mood hits.

I still have an Etsy shop. I celebrated my 12th year in January. 12 years! Where has the time gone? Etsy is the perfect fit for me. I work when I want to and take off when I need to.

I'm still gardening and preserving our harvest. Seeds are started and beginning to sprout. I'm looking forward to another year of working the dirt.

Althea lost her battle with hyperthyroidism. We miss her dearly. More than words can say. Not a day goes by that I don't think about her. We decided that we would get another cat a few months later. The silence around here was deafening. We searched the web for shelter cats and found two. Both long haired white cats. Both females. They are young and into everything! We adopted Magnolia from a shelter in Alabama. Mae came from Kentucky.

Well, I have orders to ship and jewelry to make.
Until next time.....

Happy 2016!

Happy New Year!
New year. New shop name. I am saying goodbye to BlackStar this year. The name of my business, not the business itself. Although I love that name, there are just too many BlackStars out there. Google it if you don't believe me!
The new name is WearYourWild. I spent a good part of last fall coming up with the name and then taking the steps to trademark both the name and phrase. 

Here's to a year full of hope, health, wishes and dreams.
Until next time.....

When Life Gives You Lemons.....

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.
Or in this case when the storm knocks down the sunflowers, bring the sunshine indoors.
Until next time.....

Dear June


Dear June,

I wonder what you have in store for me. May managed to freak me the fpck out, starting with two weeks of no rain and having to water the young garden, followed by two weeks of almost non stop rain; ending with a downpour so heavy that all the gardens looked like lakes when all was said and done.
It looks like everything might be OK, but it's still too early to tell. I ended up digging up all of our pepper plants and putting them back in their pots because the round bed was holding water and the plants would have died. I'm hoping to transplant them back this weekend now that the sun is out.
A lone deer decided to check out the garden and nibbled on a few corn seedlings. I put up the 'deer fence' similar to the one that I used last year and so far, so good. Knock on wood. 
Chicken wire went up to protect the beans from rabbits. Hopefully groundhogs too, if one show up.
I love getting up every morning and checking in on the different beds. So much to do this time of year and I love every minute of it.
Until next time.....

Hey May!

I can not believe that it's May already! We're knee deep into Spring gardening with 7 days of sunshine (and heat) ahead. I'm planning to plant the garden this week. I tilled the gardens once and will do so again this weekend. After hauling compost and tilling yet again, we'll be good to go. Now I just need to figure out what's going to go where this year.

Until next time.....

Garden Roundup ~ April 28

We've had a pretty wet spring so far. I'm (im)patiently waiting to till the garden. I think I'll be able to do so tomorrow. There's plenty to keep us busy until then. It's still too early to plant or transplant the summer vegetables. The spring seeds that were planted are coming up slowly but surely. It feels good to be gardening. It feels good to be dead tired and dirty. And it feels good to be blogging again.
Until next time.....
