It’s been awhile since I wrote a blog post. We have been so busy making our art that the time just hasn’t been there. So I am sitting here this morning with my coffee and thought let’s do this. We have a new very large messenger bag to show you. It’s the perfect bag for a large, tall person. A lot of people really like black bags and this one is handmade, handstitched in black leather. This black messenger bag has an extra pocket inside and one on the back of the bag. We always go the extra mile on our bags with fine detail. Check it out.
We added antler buttons to the sides of the flat shoulder strap which is 57 inches long. That is a very long shoulder strap that is perfect for a tall, large person that likes to wear their bag crossbody.
The measurements of the body of this bag are 13 inches tall x 15 inches wide x 5 inches deep.
This is the inside of this large black handbag. It shows the extra pocket.
This is the back of the bag. This picture shows the back pocket. There is a lot of room in this bag. It’s big enough for a laptop computer and so many other things that you may need.
I planted a few seeds in our fall container garden. This morning I decided to get a couple pictures. It’s so awesome when the seasons change. The air is so nice especially after a rain. The air is so clean and fresh. It’s like starting fresh. ❤ Love that! This is two of our containers.
Some yummy endive coming up in this container and radishes. The marigolds have been here all summer.
We have been getting a lot of rain the last couple of days. I planted some wild flower seeds and these are blooming right now.
Every morning we get up very early, make the coffee and go to the garden for sitting quietly , reading a book and digging out some weeds. As we sit there we never know who may come by to visit. Butterflies, hummingbirds, sparrows, hawks, rabbits, squirrels, lizards and even a couple snakes.
We love watching the hawks and there have been a lot of them lately. They hunt the fields. They fly right over the top of us crying their hawk cry. Sometimes they just sit and wait and watch. I have always loved hawks.
This is one of our morning glory plants. I adore these flowers the beautiful purple and the green heart shaped leaves are just beautiful. The hummingbirds like them too.
We have plenty of hummingbirds flying about. They are so unique.
This is the first year I grew eggplants. Wow! They are amazing plants. These are called finger eggplants. They are small , a beautiful dark purple color. The plants are like trees. Very strong trunks. They have done very well here in Arizona. So we will be planting them again. Also the squirrels don’t like them.
I am so Grateful for our little container garden. I used to have raised beds but because of the gophers, squirrels and grass I had to go a different way. This way is also much easier on my back and knees. Which when you are my age you have to start considering. I love and am grateful for all our beautiful flowers. All the lovely colors and surprises of colors. It’s amazing!
And our sweet fur baby! He loves sitting with us in the garden! He is such a huge joy in our life.
Thanks for stopping in!
Wishing you a beautiful day full of wisdom, insight and much love!

It’s November 22nd and gez what a year it has been. We are all trying to find a little hope and peace in the middle of so much suffering. I have been growing a container garden for a couple years now. It’s better for my back and knees at this age. We have had a few frosts this year. The days have been unseasonably warm and these flowers I planted have been thinking about blooming for awhile. Today when I went out at noon to look around this little flower had opened up. How sweet is that?
This sweet little flower is in the same container as the parsley I planted. A few other flowers are thinking of opening up too. Parsley does well in cold weather and frosts but I am so surprised with these flowers. It makes my heart sing with joy! ❤
That’s all ! I wanted to share this with you! You never know what little miracle will come to show you a little joy in life. To remind you it’s all okay even when everything is so uncertain. To be honest uncertainty is part of everyday life.
It’s Sunday morning and all is well around our home. We spent some time in the garden before it gets to hot. I have been planting a fall garden and it’s growing good. The mornings have been so nice and cool. It’s refreshing when fall arrives. The plants are all happy. River is getting to know the bunnies in our yard.
We love getting up with the sun and spending time outside. With fall here and the days getting shorter we will need to change some things but to us it’s important to get out and play outside. When we are done we get busy with beading and making leather bags.
The pictures tell the story. I am grateful for my life. There are many things to be grateful for. The times we are in are pretty weird but all in all you just have to do the best you can and find joy where you can.
