Happy Solstice everyone! We had a beautiful start to the summer season here. A day of shorts, tanks and flip flops, lots of time outside, digging in the dirt, with cold herbal tea and chocolate chocolate chip ice cream.

I have just added a couple new bags to the shop. They are both compact mid-sized messenger style bags, with depths of texture and plenty of great features for your summertime adventures! I had a lot of fun making these and am planning on making myself something similar soon.

Take a peek in the shop for more details and images.

See you soon! Enjoy the day!

summer color

Lots of yellow popping up around here. Thought I’d share some. There’s a bit more yellow coming to the shop soon too.

We’ve got some fuzzy yellow caterpillars cocooning on the side of our house, and a flock of cedar waxwings came through yesterday – amazing with their vivid, waxy yellow tail tips.

And just a little reminder – don’t forget to let the dads in your life know that you love them this weekend.

baby deer

One of the highlights of the year here has been seeing the little spotted baby deer appear. This spring we have been waiting, observing a couple of very pregnant moms graze and relax in the yard, and finally, early one morning last week, I spotted 2 tiny creatures on the far side of the lawn. There was quite a herd, with mom and babies, a big buck and a couple of 1 year olds. I was practically giddy, and had to refrain from waking Steven up. After that first glimpse, I decided to get out of sight and not make a spectacle, in an effort to make mom feel comfortable bringing them through here.

We finally got our fill of baby deer watching yesterday. Ahh, so dang cute!

This baby was so curious about mom going pee.

They are so little, and still funny and awkward like babies can be. While they mostly stayed close to mom, they were also very playful and ran around in circles with each other. I didn’t notice them eat much, but they seemed pick up pieces of grass and clover, taste it and then drop it, so I’d guess they are still nursing. I’ve never been anywhere that I have been able to observe wild animals so closely in this way. It’s really so amazing.
