Tinker Verve

creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results


I have spent 3 ½ days away from home, in and around the BIG {rainy} city.  It has been wonderful, fulfilling, over-stimulating and, best of all, it makes me love my home all the more.

I have loved catching up with dear friends, shopping, eating and relaxing but, as Jane Austen so wonderfully puts it…”There is no place like home for real comfort”.

I came home with a sense of accomplishment as I was able to share in some much-needed gf time as well as replenish and add to {my stash/stuff/junque}…with the help of:

Goodwill {2 times}

JoAnn Fabrics

Ben Franklin Crafts

Paper Zone {Yay, oh Yay! for Paper Zone}

Anthropology {2 times ~ O!M!Goodness!, how I love this store}


…and more…

oh ya, and we took care of important business…my girl now has her new florescent-yellow, glow-in-the-dark, retainer!   {not sure how that works…who is in there to see the yellow glow?}

Amber and her family so graciously hosted me {and my girl} in there sweet, new-to-them home where they have beautifully carved out a little piece of country.  Her enviable barn is the one in the picture.

I’m so, so, SO excited to spend a day at home where it is quiet and the snow is falling heavy and steady and I’m feeling warm and toasty and inspired {with a bit of giddiness…oh my, what can a girl do with that?}!
