This is my "Market Apron" , simple and industrial looking.
The story goes...I can sew a straight stitch and made one the night before a market. Received few compliments so decided to hire Anita, wonderful seamstress and you can contact her at tatteredgoods. She made a couple for me to sell. I approached Beth Livesay in regard of my wearable solder art for the next issue of Jewelry Affair and asked her to check out my blog. Well she liked the Jewelry, but she loved the aprons? Sent few in and they choose this one.
before I can create, my day has a few up and downs....meaning walking up and down the hills! lol
this could be boring for some of you and interesting for others. I decided to take the camera along for the ride.
Cleaned the stove while waiting for the Espresso machine to worm up!
My Sweetest shadow ever is Benny.....
I finally figure out that he sits in my chair so I will remember to give him is cookie.
Feed the fishes.
For every animal that we rescue there is a story.
The story goes that we had 2 turtles and you feed them live gold fish. The turtles died and we were left we 3 gold fish and now there are 10!
Humming bird food? Check...
We rescued Roosty from been eaten by a raccoon. He is missing one eye because of it and has been rejected by the other chickens. He is my other shadow.

Laying in the sun all day long.
Time for some gardening, 5 mins max!

tomato, cucumber and onion salad. Am I on a diet? no, it's just so Delizioso and fresh.
time to get the mail...this is my only exercise 300 feet
years ago my neighbor ask permission to put a sign on our tree, sure! Now...., the way I read/translate the meaning of the sign is: that the kids have some problems, they are slow? Just my translation from the Italian to English.
What about slow down, children are crossing? playing?
going up, up.....
My boys playground
