Moving on down the road. . .

Two weeks ago, Lulu and I packed up The Cart and headed for a new pasture (literally). Well, Lulu was no help. But she did seem to enjoy the journey. Here's a little stop along Highway 101, heading from the Oregon Coast to Olympia, Washington. Nice view, huh?

And here are some pics of our new digs--

Love those furry green trees!

The pasture that I look out on from my worktable. There's a horse in there somewhere. His name is Harley and when I bring him carrots he licks my face like he's a giant dog.

A little outbuilding that I hope to turn into a ceramics studio someday.

View from my front steps.

The Cart, parked in its new little corner of paradise. I have plans to build a deck and make the outside all pretty.
I love it here already! I'm still getting settled in, finding my way around and such. The studio is fully functional however and I've been working and working. My living room is now (hopefully very temporarily) a woodworking shop, but I'm saving pennies to get a shed soon so as to lessen the indoor sawdust component. Got some commissions done, and even managed to make some new stuff for the shop! My list is still long. Really really long. But I'm checking stuff off everyday. It's challenging, but all sorts of rewarding!

 I'll be back on Sunday with pics of this week's offerings, but I just couldn't bring myself to do a post without any silliness, so here are a few snapshots from today's table--

I hope your day's challenges prove to offer their own unexpected rewards.


  1. You've done so well despite past disappointments, all credit to you!
    I could happily live with that kind of outlook and almost bought myself a mobile home a year back.
    And furry trees would be just wonderful as neighbours!!
    Wishing you happiness, laughter and maybe at least enough riches to get your deck and shed! : )

  2. What a beautiful place to live and a beautiful place to start your new journey.


  3. This wonderful place! Have a nice day!

  4. Oh, those furry trees are just gorgeous, I bet they are wonderful to touch :o)

  5. ...Oh Jo, I am so happy for you! You've come a long way and I hope you look in the mirror and feel a sense of pride, because you should!

    ...Beautiful scenery! And I didn't know your cart was so big! Se-weet!

    ...Enjoy the journey!

    ...Peace & blessings. :o)

  6. Jo, your new home looks so beautiful and you are just over the border and down the road from me! Wishing you much joy as you settle in to your new location, those furry trees are so fab!

  7. What a beautiful place to live Jo! I am so glad you are able to keep on working on such lovely projects.
