Almost a year gone by and by with another coming up! 2017-2018 Found as Draft Never Published

I simply cannot believe it has been a year since I was here and posted! WOW!; times flies more and more!  I would have never ever imagined it would take so long to settle in and I still have a lot more to do.  I am in the process  of still trying to get my flowers I brought from old cabin re-planted in a garden I had tilled here. It is taking forever it seems with still trying to settle into new cabin that we now own, some things like bookcases are still in middle of room where movers left them. Problem is no wall space as it is a big beautiful open concept with not many walls to put my bookcases against.  I started putting unpacked books in them just to make boxes unpacked and re-use for other things, also to see what I had here as I still have some warehouses to check in what is also there too.  

I have not listed either in my on-line shops, listing takes so much time with writing a description, taking photos, and measurements of everything I list ( I try to do) even more than some catalogs tell you about an item.  I like to leave no surprises for anyone to receive as I offer no returns unless my fault in listing.  The idea is to have spendable money is why I limit my returns, also to have postage mailing money which I made need to ship items I sell. 

I have so much stuff of all kinds as I have said before that when I can get to doing it again, it will be a big assortment of kinds of items, Vintage and New, Outgrown  down sizes) with clothing.  I have many clothing items and Brands very desirable to hopefully my buyers.  I have lost so much weight since moving to North Carolina because I spend so much time outside where I love to be and very active.  But, my loved clothing simple much go as much as I just love it, I have not closet space to hold them nicely and I hate to iron but I will have too sooner or later. I got some covered clothes racks to put in my " Garden Shed" I purchased when we moved here along with garden and holiday items.  I can now reflect on what I really do wear and double I will grow back into many of them and I have been pinning my waistbands which I will quit.  I have enough that fits me now.  Someone else may love it as I do( did) so now to make them available.  

I am on my new HP computer which I got yesterday since my just died with freezing up my arrow curser and  too many re-boots just making it completely unusable now. My DH is trying to remove from it what he can. I just do hope I did not lose all of my photographs and listing descriptions like I did once before when had to change computers.  That was precious work lost!

Soon it will be Christmas and I finally have room for our old big tree we did not have room for in our old cabin. At least I hope too. It is not even pre-lit like all the new ones, and may need replacement too.  We did put up string of LED small lights on the front and back decks to make it easier to see while there without a big overhead light on.  Now, you can see our house from the main road which before was not seen until you almost entered our driveway.  I did not expect to be able to see it so far away and I just noticed coming home one evening after dark.  I don't think I like it being that visible either.  Those are bright tiny white lights and more economical.

Added since found draft post: 12-29-17

What I have been doing? Forest Finds, Gardening, Dried Flowers, etc.

What in the world have I been up too lately!  The forest  is so enchanting now with the leaves falling rapidly. I got a bag of fallen pears yesterday from a couple to put out for the deer, they love them! They have been closer to the cabin lately, I can see them across in the forest by the edge of the road and sometimes even walking up it. I can hear them when the leaves rustle in the woods and look to see a doe and two babies, but we have more sometimes. Also the turkeys and I hope the bear will stay in hibernation so I can put my bird feeders back out as it tears them up.




I found while out one day what I suppose you really call "Pole Beans".   I loved this garden! 

Bamboo Poles 


And this is the "Poison Sumac"  in bloom, you do NOT want to get near it, it is worse than Poison Ivy! 




I also have been collecting forest finds and filling Etsy orders from them. I love the "Natural Organic real thing" over purchasing a man-made item in a store look- alike. They never get it quite right.
                                     Pussy Willow Real Thing 


                                                    
                                       
                                            Shelf Mushrooms


Other fungi , the Pink is Indian Pipe and it can also be White



 Teeny Tiny Acorns are falling everywhere, they collect also in the Moss in my Bee Balm Garden.  I can just rake my fingers thru the crevices and out they come!   I also planted moss there to keep the falling flowers from getting in the dirt or mulch.  The one small cone I got from another place as we have none on our property. This is a coffee can lid they are displayed inside of.





I found the Golden Wooly Worms, I wonder why they are not black or if they will be? 
 

The sassafras leaves are the cabin are turning colors and are so beautiful! I call our cabin " Sassafrass Cabin" because we have so many of these trees in our yard and nearby forest.


I have real Pussy Willow over the Silk Artificial ones  I brought up here. It dried beautifully and is in use in my potpourri and floral displays. I also dry so many of my flower heads and collect seeds for later in another place.  I have gardened here more than ever in my life! 




                         Flowers I Dry for Potpourri with Essential Oils  




And some Potpourri I have made, Pink Roses 



I also recently fell off the side of our porch and I sat there saying, " I did NOT break my ankle" over and over again before I got up. Praise the Lord is was not broken but badly sprained so I had to get some wider shoes to accommodate the wrap the DR. put around and I found some really cute ones. I love them, they are a size to big but OK, they will lace tighter after my ankle heals.I did have to return the brown leather slip-on because my heel slipped to bad in it. I thought the ties around them would be fine but, not enough to keep them on. 




Thanks for looking at my post today, please leave a comment; I love knowing you were here! Blessings, Cyndi
