beach day break!

>> Saturday, October 8, 2011

today we decided to take a break from everything and we headed down to the beach.  yes, the BEACH.  in OCTOBER.  it was gorgeously hot outside and we couldn't let it go to waste.  the mini had tons of fun throwing smooth beach pebbles into cold Lake Ontario and wandering on the sand-dusted boardwalk.  definitely refreshing and mentally invigorating.  makes me miss living so close to the water - we should have taken advantage of it more.

so i don't know how i did it, but i have managed to cut, burn with acid, and scorch with flame the exact same spot on my left index finger.  it probably doesn't help that when i sand things down, i use that finger to brace the metal and end up sanding over the wound.  sigh.  anyone got a band-aid?  or a chain maille glove?


the heartsy deal continues!

my heartsy deal ( ) is only on for one more day!  seriously, it is a huge discount and i'm running ahead of schedule on some orders!  thank you again, heartsy!


hoping to be overwhelmed.

so tomorrow, my second heartsy deal will open.  i am hopeful that i will sell out!  (if you don't see me for a while, it's because i'm buried in the basement with my torch and my iPod.)


i am in love. more hearts.

sterling silver open freeform heart on an 18" slightly oxidized, rolo-type chain. i like this more than the bangle. (sorry, julie!)




way before 'chasing cars' put snow patrol on the map, they wrote this even more beautiful song, 'run'. sometimes you remember exactly where you are when you hear a song and for me, this is one of them - a summer day, the radio on, a warm breeze, tanned skin, and the live version of 'run'.

part of what appeals to me about snow patrol is that they struggled really hard to get where they are today, and it speaks to a strong work ethic, perseverance (they kicked around the idea of breaking up, and have gone through several lineup changes), and the concept of not selling out.  (they can't help it that so many TV writers and producers love their music.)

while 'chasing cars' definitely is high on my list (i am making my way through season 7 of grey's anatomy and it's making me teary), i will never forget the way this song makes me feel. and that makes it even better.


more hearts.
