They came from snow to 104 degree weather and nearly melted! We also had a great week with my eight year old niece. She's quite the little jewelry designer herself! I'm flattered that she wants to be like Aunt Amy and bought her some beads and tools of her own. She really surprised me with a lovely little flower necklace made of freshwater pearls. I was quite impressed! She has...

I have so many things that I...

OK, so I don’t have black hair and alabaster skin, nor are there seven dwarfs running around my house (thank goodness!). But I do live perched in the side of a hill, surrounded by wildlife, in of one of the best cities on earth…Austin, Texas. The front of our house overlooks the neighbors' rooftops across the street and into the hills. The back yard slopes up into a forest full of deer (yes, I feed them…and they have a water dish too. It gets hot in Austin!). We also have tons of birds that visit so regularly you can identify...
