In case you were wondering...

This blog exists to encourage all those who have ever wanted--and needed!--a tiny getaway close to home. A workshop, playhouse, garden shed, sanctuary, mini-greenhouse, studio, home office; whatever it is you need, it IS doable, with some sacrifice, imagination, and compromise.

It helps if you're handy, too.

Life at the Shed

This is my mezzuzah-like construction that hangs by the door to the reminds me I'm entering a very special place, a place to work, dream, write, paint, meditate...

Each piece means something special to me.  The top rock is from one of my heart homes in the Ozarks, Bennett Spring--it's rugged and sharp. Then, there's a crinoid I found in my creek to remind me of ancient life and prehistory and time. The silver spiral my mother in law gave me--I love spirals, and it peeps from a knothole in the wood. Then a big, rough ammonite...I have a thing about fossils...then, a crystal, a tiny sterling silver sunface, and a wee bottle with quotes that are meaningful to me. Oh, and the wood itself weathered off the edging for my old garden...wabi-sabi and nature and the sacred, all in one construction.

And recent wintry sketches...I love my bear pendant and the stone face that appears and disappears depending on the light...


  1. Now that is truly special and personal--wow! Love your sketch journal, too. :)

    1. Thank you, Rita! Yes, it is very personal to me...and I love how it turned out.
