I woke up this morning and there was a particular silence. A silence that only happens when it snows. I grew up in the mountains above where I live now and previously lived in the sierra, so I was familiar with the sound or lack there of. Only in the desert it’s at a whole […]
This “holiday” weekend was a bit of a blur. Between working, seeing friends in town, feasting and other festivities, I need to nap for the next week. With what’s been going on with me health wise, it takes a lot out of me just to do my daily work life stuff. Throw in socializing, bonfires, […]
There are things in this life that bring one a special kind of joy and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is one of those things for me. I’ve watched it more times than I could even begin to count and next to Fantasia, it’s the first movie I vividly remember from my childhood. To […]
I could watch this over and over, but that would mean I’d be in tears all day. One of the more breathtaking pieces I’ve watched in a while.
I’m soon about to finish, “Freedom is a Two-Edged Sword” by Jack Parsons. It’s a book that I think every freethinking individual should read and can read in a few hours.

From the artistry, the meaning and the perfect execution, this quite possibly is my favorite piece of adornment I’ve ever laid eyes on. I mean the friggin kachina […]
It’s bald eagle appreciation day! See more pictures of these beauties HERE. Also where I copped the above photo. That is all.
Truth be told it’s not often I buy adornment for myself. I’ve been fortunate enough to have been passed down and given some pretty amazing pieces from my family and if I fancy something in particular, I can make it or have a pretty awesome group of metalsmiths in my life who can. However I’ve […]
With that “thankful” holiday upon us. I give supreme thanks for the universe bringing the most solid group of women into my life. I would be lost without them. They continually show me what unconditional love is and make me laugh until I can’t breath. No joke, I almost died at lunch upon arrival in […]
My crazy hound from hell decide to wake me up at 3:00 am this morning. Luckily there was something magical happening, that made being awake at that hour worth it.Half way through the tetrad of blood moons (a lunar eclipse), the next will occur in April of next year, last night’s spectacle was a sight […]
