Although I have had moments of feeling guilty about blogging, it feels great to be back to blogging. My Rothko-inspired DIY art post from last week was my first post in a week! That blog-less week felt so weird to me. Bits of my routine from home feel really comforting. In fact, I still blog around 9:00 or 10:00 am, as usual, but now that means that you get my posts six hours earlier! Sorry for any inconvenience, but I promise some fun and exciting posts. I’m busy editing photos of the apartment, but I thought I better get on with my favorite and best of August, before it becomes October!
In August I tackled a DIY jewellery project I’d been dying to try: making an inexpensive agate necklace from a slice of agate bought from a gift shop during a trip! Happily, it was a success – thanks to Hubby’s help!
Unfortunately, the orange dress I was wearing when I showed off my new necklace turned out to be weirdo catnip and was thus rejected from the “clothes for the trip” pile. It is tucked safely in my closet at home!
That’s okay, I like turquoise better anyway. And I professed my love in a whole post dedicated to turquoise goodness.

With the end of yard sale season (for me, anyway) looming, I hit the treasure hunting hard! I scored big in the green and turquoise (yay!) department . . .
. . . then shared some jewellery finds (along with an “oops” moment) . . .
. . . and even went thrifting with my pal Gemma . . .
I shared my big scary news: moving to Hungary for four months! And that’s why I closed down our Etsy shop after a few weeks fun – and sales! We’ll reopen next year, hopefully with some goodies from Hungary.
Then I made some white felted flowers, to gussy up my Expedit bookcase.
I could have been more productive, but I made time to spend with Hubby last month. I’m so glad I did because I miss him terribly!
