Hey there, you guys!
I love Etsy. LOVE Etsy. It’s quickly becoming a super popular source for beautiful handcrafted finds – be it jewelry or even website templates! It seems every time I log on to the website I find something else to add to my favorites. I have SUCH a long list of things I’d love to have from various Etsy shops, so I thought I’d go all lifestyle blogger on y’all and put together a little wishlist. Maybe this will inspire you to give someone you love a neat gift! (Me?)
Y’all, I am an avid reader.
I suppose if I had to choose only one pastime, it would be reading. I’ve always been like that. When I was but three years old, I learned to read – and at four, I was devouring books. Anyone remember Dick and Jane?
A few nights ago, I watched the movie Brigadoon. It’s from the ‘50s. It’s a cinemascope musical, which means fine costumes, elaborately built sets, and lots of music. It’s one of those musicals where it’s almost ridiculous. If you’re a character, you can’t walk down the street without bursting into song about something. I’d seen it before, but having watched it for the second time, I realized there was more to it than what meets the eye.
Time for the seventh episode of Around the Farm! For those of you who are new (because my last episode was June 2018), I basically go around the farm, take pictures, and then post them on my blog. They’re just fun ways to document what’s going on or such. You can visit the tag which has all the posts here. You can see how my photography has improved, especially since I first started posting these in May of 2016. Wow. More has changed than just my photography.
February went by with a breath; in a blink. Somehow, the month that usually seems to creep by went faster than ever this year. Now it’s March. The other night, I heard crickets. If there’s one thing about winter nights, it’s that they are silent. The crickets chirping; the robins perched on the bare tree branches; the tiny buds on the peach trees and the scent of living, growing things remind me of a sensation that comes but once a year – spring.
About a month ago, Allison, Megan, Hannah, Clara and I all got together (across email, unfortunately – not in person) and talked about doing an entrepreneur collab. Allison had noticed that she knew/knew of a lot of people who wanted to start an Etsy shop but just didn’t know how to start. So we put our heads together, talked to the other girls, and decided to all post about it!
