Woodland Terrariums

November 27, 2011

FALLS VILLAGE, Connecticut: I have been foraging the forests around my house for fun, hunting moss, ferns and baby trees. I tucked the treasures away in interesting containers and vessels, also found (at local junk stores and antique shops…) and will be selling the creations among other clever crafts next weekend at the Hometown Holidays Artisan Sale in Lakeville. There will be a special opening reception this year, Friday evening, so if you are in the area please come join the festivities and get yourself some local goodies!


Dumps Like A Truck

FALLS VILLAGE, Connecticut: I woke a few weeks ago to the first snow fall of the 11/12 winter season. Little did I know this was just the beginning. A freak storm dumped 2 – 3′ on us up here in the NW corner! Power was out for over 300,000 people in CT alone, some for longer than 10 days. I escaped to the city for heat and water, but received this epic photo from the roommate…
When I returned home, I attempted to ride the white stuff – but it was just too darn heavy. Not sure I will be able to get used to this east coast sludge after a glorious winter of champagne powder out west. Up to me knees felt good either way though. I love snow.
