One.

I love collecting unusual plants. This is a spotted bee balm, and I got it at the Friends School Plant Sale this year. Isn’t it incredible?

Below is ground nut vine, (mingled with virgin’s bower clematis.) It grows all over the place in my yard now. It’s native to this region, but nearly no one I’ve spoken to has heard about it. I got it from a gardener who advertised on Craigslist and sold it to me for $2.

This is my favorite coffee mug. My lovely friend Laura made it for me. It’s the perfect companion to my first cup of coffee in the morning.

I am not technically “good” at sewing, but I sure can do a lot of fantastic things with this serger! So in love with my Juki.

My husband is the lead singer, fiddle-player, guitar-player, mandolin-player, harmonica-player, songwriter in a local band, The Sweet Colleens. They played the Irish Fair of Minnesota today.

Five.

Everywhere we’ve lived over the last 17 years, I’ve painted our front steps and door red. It sure seems to make us easy to find!
