Little Lime Update

Unfortunately the lime tree ended up dropping both of the little limes, so no limes for me this year. It does have a lot of new, healthy growth which is exciting though. 


The Red Leather Studio

I’m so excited to finally be able to share a project with you all that I’ve been working on for the past year and one of the reasons I’ve been so quiet: The Red Leather Studio on Etsy (@redleatherday on Instagram). Right now the shop is mainly handcrafted traveler’s notebook covers, but there’s plenty of room and plans to expand in the future. I’ve had a lot of fun setting this shop up and improving on my leather working skills and I’d love if you’d check it out and let me know what you think. Also, this week I’ll be running an opening/Thanksgiving sale and the code THANKFULLYOPEN will get you 10% off your purchase (excluding Perfectly Imperfect covers). The sale starts tomorrow and runs through November 28th.

Well, that’s really the big thing since my last post. My health hasn’t improved any and we’re still looking for answers. I do still hope to return to blogging regularly, just like I hope to be able to continue my education, I’m just not quite sure when I’ll be able to. Oh life with chronic illnesses… always an adventure.

Hope you are all having a wonderful Autumn!


A health flare that seems to have no end and some big projects for grad school mean that I’m going to take a hiatus from blogging for a bit. Hopefully I’ll be back soon to continue the Herb of the Month posts (and finish up both March’s and February’s herbs) and share updates from the garden. Until then I hope you have a wonderful spring!



This month I’ve been in the process of renovating the blog, so to speak. I realized that I hadn’t really looked at the themes or layouts for a few years and I thought it was time for an update. Some new things include an updated profile, the Instagram widget, and most obviously a new theme. I’m still in the process of revising the pages so you may notice some subtle changes there later in the month. If you notice any links that no longer work or pictures that don’t show up, please let me know. Thanks!
