Lynn – ExpeditionD


Lynn, from ExpeditionD on etsy, makes the most wonderful creations, including polymer clay faux antiquities and artifacts. I have purchased many items from her! I won a giveaway on her blog – a beautiful glass bird pendant. I had to send her something in return, so I sent along some beads. She used two of the beads to make these wonderful earrings with her medieval tab charms. Check them out!

My Chiminea


Doesn’t that sound like it should be a song? I ordered this chiminea – it came last week, but the engineer and I (well, mostly the engineer) put it together yesterday. It has a dragonfly motif on it, and it’s black cast aluminum. You can cook on it too – you remove the top and put a cooking grate on. Doubt I’ll do that – I have a grill. But I’m sure the kids will want to roast marshmallows! We were going to use it last night, but just plain forgot! So maybe tonight when the kids get home, we’ll try it out – we’ll see, there’s a Steeler game on at 8:20 that we don’t want to miss, either. And homework, and Youth Group, etc. etc.! Happy Monday!
