As you climb the mountain, you literally watch the temperature gauge in the car drop degree by degree, till you arrive at home. A decent 15-20 degrees cooler simply because we’re at 5,000 feet.
But it still gets hot up here in the mountains.
And the hot weather…Continue

Buttons. Yes, a strange fascination, I admit. But I love them.
I’ve always loved buttons. Those colorful, textured little baubles from the past. And yes, I know, it doesn’t exactly match up with the whole de-clutter philosophy…but they do bring me such happiness. And…Continue
