a stroll through historic Manassas, Virginia

Best known for its unforgettable role in American history.
In July 1861, Union and Confederate forces faced off near the railroad community of Manassas Junction for the first major battle of the Civil War.

The Historic Manassas Train Station was constructed in 1904. In 1912 it was destroyed by fire and rebuilt on the original foundation in 1914.

a tale of a trip to Malawi

10 Days ago my husband left for Africa.
This time it was Malawi, one of the poorest countries in Africa.
He shared some of his photos with me.
I thought I'd put together a few images which have caught my eye..


Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!!

happy 2012

Happy New Year to you!

I hope that you had a fabulous celebration yesterday!
My whole day was wonderful and was the perfect close to 2011, and opening to 2012. Time spent with my family eating delicious homemade food.
With great joy, I woke up this morning feeling well-rested and refreshed on this beautifuyl Sunday, with temperatures in the 60's all day.

I'm so looking forward to another year of new ideas & collections, projects and challenges. A sincere thanks to all of you for reading this little space where I record my creative life, commenting, and supporting what I do here. I am truly grateful!
