I started this site many years ago as a way to capture moments of appreciation, beauty, inspiration, and whimsy. In those posts I share spring flowers from my garden, pictures of lovely meals, smiley faces and hearts that appear in unexpected places, and many pictures showcasing the natural wonder of Lake Michigan at all different times of the year. You can read about the genesis of this site in the origin post, if you like.
Over the years this site has evolved to focus more on my activities as a maker, and most recently into a place where I can sell the jewelry I make by hand. I hope you enjoy your visit!
