(note: pictures are by an artist, Nicholas Santoleri. My husband purchased the first one that you see above, as a wedding present to me. Valley Green is often painted and photographed, we have many paintings of it hanging in our home.)

It's been my goal to do wholesale work. It's a way to expand my business - to reach WAY outside of the Etsy world. My work has been accepted at an online Waldorf-type shop, and I am SO EXCITED!!!!
Here is what I've finished so far:
2 ponies and 3 acorns...!! More to come!

Isn't it weird? Our water comes from a well. We share the well with 3 other houses. And there's a problem. There's a leak, or the pump isn't working, or there's a crack in the pipe 700+ feet down.
So the water guy came today, to fill the well. He filled it 3 times, with 2000 gallons each time. And between the 2nd and 3rd trip to fill it, the water level dropped. Where did it go? Not to my house, not to the house that nobody is living in yet cause it's under construction, to the house on the corner that also has nobody living in it full-time?
All I can see are dollar signs. Flying away....or should I say floating away......on the water that is NOT coming into my house. I'm told it could be close to $10,000 to fix it. Possibly.
Maybe. Um, I do not have that kind of loose change right now. So I did not sleep last night. And cannot forsee sleeping until I have water again.

are SHOUTING to me!
FaerieRebecca has such amazing talent.
First - we have a needle felted Native American
doll. LOOK at her! amazing.
Then, we have "California Girl", a true
Waldorf style doll. Did dolls like this exist
when I was a girl? I don't think so....
I just had to share....
He's listed here. Just in case he speaks to you too.

things bloom in the desert. I have no idea what kind of cactus this is, but it has really pretty flowers. this is a view of our front 'yard', we have some trees! and it really needs a good raking. What are you doing this weekend??
Dozer is worried about the camera, Belle couldn't care less. Dozer moves away to be nearer his girlfriend, it's safer in the herd.

Thanks Woodmouse!!! (the goatie at the top of the post is one of woodmouse's creations, that is now mine, and sits here with me, I love him)
But imagine if I had known about this:
This wonder is made by Wool Comes Alive at Etsy. The little bales of hay just absolutely FLOOR me. So now Noah is 15, and believe me, has absolutely no interest in anything HAY related (well, at least I hope so, if you know what I mean). We have horses, and the high-school version of Noah has little interest in them. He will feed them, but that's about it. So Sad.Wool comes Alive makes all kinds of wonderous items. I rather want everything in her shop. You can buy these trees to put with your barn, and pretend you have an orchard.
Then, to make your wildlife scene complete, check out this little guy:Incredible!!!
