This has been a quiet little space lately.  I got back from NY last week and sat down and exhaled.  I just needed to sit and be until I could refill myself from the inside out.  Does that make any sense?  I felt like I was on a hamster wheel and had to jump off for a while.  And then I looked forward to jumping back on.  

In the meantime there wasn't much knitting or crafting going on (yes, I needed to take a break from that as well - that's how I  knew I needed some mental rest.  If I can't even knit, I'm pretty much empty).  There wasn't even much picture taking.  But I got this awesome gift in the mail.

Joanna from Sweet Little Wood started a business for her three daughters making these earrings. What a wonderful thing to do.  Not only do I love the colors but they are nice and light.  I have a problem wearing heavy earrings and these feel good.  Her Etsy store is actually sold out right now but check back for updates.  

Have a lovely weekend my friends.

Oh my dear, I do hope you are getting plenty of rest, you must be totally exhausted to not even knit.
I cast on a pair of socks with the yarn you sent me and I am loving it, thank you again.
And thank you too for the Sweet Little Wood shop recommendation, I will have to visit.
Have a great and restful weekend.

I'm glad you recognized when you needed to get off your hamster wheel and take time for some rest and rejuvenation. Those earrings are perfect for a reflective time. They remind me of a lovely aurora borealis, and I'm looking forward to seeing some (for me!) in Joanna's shop.

Those earrings are beautiful! Rest up, relax, do what feels right for YOU.

we all need a break now and then.....refuel yourself! Those earrings are you, I don't want my earring to drag me down. These look perfect.

We introverts need down time to get that mojo back. Just found your blog and hope you feel refreshed very soon. : )

nothing wrong with catching a breather when you need to. I'm glad you rested and then popped back in to give us an update.

I hope this week and this weather will help rejuvenate you! Sometimes we do just need to crash. ;-)

Totally get it. In fact that was me for the past 2 days.

I love the earrings. I'm with you on not wearing heavy pieces. Thanks for the link!
