A little Bit About Me
Someplace in Thyme
I have been creating since I was a little girl. I am happy to say that having my own website has opened up a whole new world for me. Trying new mediums is a joy and sometimes a real eye opener. I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

This darling baby shoe was given to me by my fairy swap partner Barbara. It is a pin cushion, but I will not use it for that purpose. It's waaay too cute to be stuck with pins!!!! This will have a place of honor on a night table for all to see. Barbara did a great job and was a wonderful swap partner. I am now on a quest to make one of these baby shoe pin cushions to sell on ebay or in my etsy shop.
This little shoe was painted with a pink crackle paint and also is embellished with a small news print in the german language. The toe has pretty silk flowers and a baby with lace wings, thus the "fairy". A pretty pink ribbon is used for the shoe ties. I just can't tell you how much I appreciate the time it took to create this lovely piece for me. Thankyou Barbara, I will always treasure this gift.

Movies: now this has to be one great month for those of us that like horror movies. I remember being dissapointed last year because the selection was not like in previous years. What happened?? I find it hard to believe there was no interest in horror movies or great mysteries. What would Halloween be without the Jason movies, or Friday the 13th, or I know what you did, Scream, Hitchcock, the list goes on and on. I'm getting so excited just thinking about all of it.
I live in the desert. During fall months, we are still wearing shorts, tee shirts and flip flops. We still have green grass that needs to be mowed, and we still run our air conditioners. It is still in the 90's here. Cooler at night, but summer still the same. The leaves on the trees don't begin to turn until Dec. so it's hard to get into the mood for Halloween. There is one option tho, and that is to head for the mountains, just under a 2 hour drive away. The elevation is 5 and 6,000 feet, so fall has landed, even if not in the valley. I guess you could say we are very lucky and can have our cake and eat it too.
The best news for me is that I get to spend a week in Oct. in the Smokey Mountains at a resort with friends this year. Yaaahoooo. I am so excited to get back south with all it has to offer and just enjoy ringing it all in. My bags will be packed and ready to go long before it's time, I will have to dig deep to find long pants, sweaters, sweatshirts and socks. I don't think I have seen any of those clothes for years. Hey, maybe I'll just go shopping??!!! BUT, right now I'm off to get ready for my swap and all the fun it'll bring to both me and my swap partner.
