The other day someone described me….

….as a human exclamation point.

I laughed out loud when I heard it.

Because it’s true.

And yesterday….when I found out when the chalkboard made it to the next round in the contest….this exclamation point jumped around the room and waved its hands in the air and shouted….

….and stopped to catch its breath and then shouted and jumped and waved some more.

Thank you.


Thank you to each and every single one of you….

Stamp By Me

I love silver for collecting.

I love silver in a white urn.

I love silver with dinner…..but most of all….

I love silver for wearing.

Each year at Christmas we have a homemade gift exchange.  This year I gave my family necklaces created from vintage silver spoons.  We simply detached the spoon from the handle, sanded it down and stamped it.

There were many entries this year, including a burlap pillow adorned with tiny, tea-stained cottonballs and a nativity set created out of acorns.

It was a grueling and arduous contest, but in the end….

….I declared myself the winner.



There was no contest.

Who could top a necklace that started out life as a piece of vintage flatware?

So when the tissue and ribbons and wrapping paper were cleared away….I just knew somewhere there would be a mirror ball trophy calling my name…..

….if I could only get the nativity set and the pillow to agree.
