Fall In The Mountains

Old Cabin

Aaron and I

Old Floor
My son Aaron and I took a day trip to the mountains yesterday and it was so beautiful!!! We found this old cabin we took a walk through it. As you walked in the floor was made from stones it was amazing.. It was like Snow Whites cottage in the forest, the fireplace was made of stone and the mantle was made from a tree branch... The cabinets in the kitchen all had the sweetest gingerbread trim and then the kitchen floor was the above flooring... I fell in love with it!!! I could so live there!!!
We looked for pine cones for me to glitter for my biggest show of the year Remnants of the Past November 9th and 10th!!! Rachael Ashwell ( who I love) will be there on Saturday signing her newest book and then on Sunday Susan Branch (again another inspiration) will be signing her newest book... So excited!!!
Loved my time with my baby Aaron:) I love love going into the mountains, the quietness and the colors so inspire me!!!! Between the country western we listened to on the way there our picnic by the creek and the discovery of the sweet cabin it was a perfect day!!!!

Open For Business!!!!


Reading Room

Compfy Bedroom
One of my "Bucket List Items" is to have a B and B... So on a smaller scale I am doing Airbnb.
I am offering a room and bath for rent on a nightly bases!! Light breakfast served, homemade scones freshly squeezed orange juice in the morning and afternoon tea... I am so excited for this new venture!! I want my guest to be cozy and relaxed.. They will have the use our beach cruisers for the short 10 minute ride to the beach to dip their toes in the ocean or watch the sunset... My studio is open for business so they can shop a little also:) Our sweet sleepy beach town offers great treasure hunting, whale watching, hiking in the Los Padres Forrest and so much more!!!
You can book through airbnb or directly through me...
My Lenny taught me to enjoy each moment it doesn't have to big just a moment smelling a rose stopping to watch the dolphin's play in the waves watching the sun slip so quietly into the ocean as another day ends... I grieve for my loss of my dad some days are better than others. I had a friend ask me a question the other day.. He asked me "Would you trade some of the happiest days of your life for not having to experience some of your saddest?" Times with my children, my dad and of coarse my days with Max the answer is a HUGE NO!!! So with that I will continue to enjoy the moments that turn into days and then into wonderful memories:)
