The herbal wreaths have arrived! They are stunning, to say the least and their herbal aroma is breathtaking. I'm beyond words, only to say, your door will never be the same.
It's count down time and the glorious May day is fast approaching. Jules and I have been working super hard to get our shops in perfect May day order. New apothecary and vintage fill the century old home.
Every now and then, occasionally I browse Etsy looking for unique jewelry pieces. I found this on a recent hunt. I love the words!
cute, isn't it? You can browse yourself if you wish here. The leather strap and the tag had me from the get-go! I love sharing the artist ♥...
I mentioned how busy we are at the shops, right.
A list of must-have Bittersweets or items to make is as long as the eye can see. Well, I might be exaggerating some, however the list is long.
Lennis and I went mushroom hunting yesterday. I found one mushroom that appeared to have been nibbled by a deer. We hiked deep into the woods behind the church and cemetery that my great, great, great relatives lay to rest. As we're hiking along we could here the organ playing, What a friend we have in Jesus. I stumbled upon a boxer turtle sunning on an Eastern bank. I stopped to watch him. At first the boxer was frightened and stuck his little head inside his shell. Then he stuck it back out. I gently patted his shell and told him that I wasn't going to hurt him. It seemed we had an understanding. As we're walking through the woods, I realized how long it had been since my last spring wood hike and how much I love the Missouri woods. It's enchanting! So much going on it's hard to keep up. Simply sitting on a log and taking it in would be soothing and refreshing, I'd imagine. I will take my camera next time.
The only down side while hiking Missouri woods in the spring or summer is ticks. Ugh! I applied rose geranium to both Lennis and I before leaving the house and we still had several deer ticks on us when we arrived home. I'm guessing rose geranium is not effective in distracting ticks. Which in reflection, I will not be formulating a natural tick repellent. I consider Lyme disease a serious threat and would never want to misinform folks proclaiming that rose geranium will keep ticks at bay. I have a pet-peeve concerning such testimonies. Don't get me started. I'm brutally honest when it comes to false claims.
Let's see, what else do I feel like chatting about?
Enjoy caring and sharing days.
With all good wishes,
