Crystal Lake Never Looked So Good

We finally made it up to Crystal Lake this past weekend. We hadn't been up since May. Between our schedules and the HEAT this past summer, we were unable to travel up the mountain.
This is what a man made lake or pond looks like when someone (the previous owner) lets trees grow on the dam. The roots caused the dam to leak. In the winter, the water covers the rock, which is to the right of the picture. The dam is in the background. Basically, the entire picture should be water. One day it will be.
We found a dam man that will fix the leak. It will take a lot of destruction and replanting, but hopefully we can get Crystal Lake back to it's glory.

It's really difficult for me to come back down. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and we'll be able to go up more this fall and winter.
Oh, the bottom photo is a sandstone rock.
Until next time.....

Labor Day 2011 Sale

I'm having a Labor Day weekend sale in my jewelry shop beginning today, September 2, at 9:00 AM CST and ending on Monday night, September 5, at 11:00 PM CST. Everything is 20% off. Prices have already been changed. Many items will not be back in the shop after this, so if you've had your eye on something, now's the time to shop.

Hope y'all have a big weekend planned to usher out Summer. We'll be grilling up a storm. Considering that they're calling for rain, that may be exactly what we'll be doing!

Until next time.....

Farewell Chippy Paint

Happy September! The summer garden is winding down and I'm beginning to plan the fall garden. I'm looking forward to all of those fresh greens. And turnips.

On another note, there will be a big change in my jewelry shop this fall. I am retiring my chippy bead board that I use for my jewelry photo background. I just feel that I'm ready for a change. And the bead board has lost most of it's chip! Slowly but surely, I will be replacing all 200+ photos. I think I'll start with replacing only the first thumbnail. I'm planning on using handmade paper that I purchased on Etsy. Thank you dear bead board for the years of service. I will miss you. xo

Until next time.....
