Today is ETSY DAY... for those who are not aware of Etsy and especially if you are an artisan of any sort or a buyer of handmade quality items, you definitely should check out http://www.etsy.com/. There is some AMAZING talent there. Also, all of the stuff is handmade. Etsy does allow supplies to be sold and some vintage things as well, but mostly is people who single-handily make items anywhere from jewelry to clothes to decor for your home. When you purchase something from here you have the satisfaction of knowing the time, love and effort along with the quality that is put in to each piece made. Again, check it out!!!
AMY..... you need to open an account and start selling them lap trays and those hand carved walking sticks.

This is the place I want to camp.
Two of the many breath-taking sunsets
I have a view of it from work and some days I just wish I could stay outside and watch the sailboats all day! I love water & the outdoors I guess. It's the direct reflection of God's creation!

After that We got in the yard and mowed. My first experience on a riding lawn mower. I'm sure for the passer-byers it was a great laugh for the morning. Needless to say, my uncle finished that task and I decided to tackle the blackberry vines. This is where I spent most of my time during the day. I cleaned all the dead vines out and all million of the little oaks that were growing within them. I only come away with 5 or 6 thorns in my hands. Found great gloves that you can actually grab up all of the stuff up and not worry about the thorns. Blackberry thorns are the worst ever to me. I think I rather sit on a cactus. (Not really). Here is a shot of the blackberry vines after I finished them and the pile that I took out of there. I think after I finished, the pile actually had more in it than there was blackberries left on the vines. Cannot wait til the are ready. The are green now.
This is part of his greenhouse. He says the secret of growing plants is not leaving them lonely, so he actually has a radio in there that plays 24-7. He must be on to something, because he can make a dead stick sprout something.
