No place like home



My red shoes, for when I wish to return to Kansas.

I liked them so much I bought the same ones in black.

Soaking up my last few days in sweet little Lawrence. Last place on earth I thought I'd ever live - and it stole my heart. Part of me will always live here.

Testing mobile blogger today so I can spout out posts from the road. If the pictures look wonky and weird words creep in, that is why. (Just there autocorrect tried to replace "pictures" with "lucifer").

I have way more gray hair than I did two months ago. In 30 minutes I will have way less. (off to the salon.)

Very reluctantly put my Etsy shop on pause for two weeks. Hard to print and ship at 70 mph.

Movers show up this week and then we'll be nomads for a while. Maybe I'll go occupy Wall Street!

Art Every Day Month starts tomorrow - I'm going to do my best to keep up.

Happy Halloween!

Howdy from Iowa! I was in Kansas City not long ago, and met one of your friends...sorry...her name escapes me at the moment...but she got one of my postcards to give to you...I went on about how much I loved your blog, and I really want to visit Lawrence someday. An unlikely little oasis for creatives like us! Love it! Good luck with the move, and your next adventure!

oooh, nice shoes!

Enjoy your move as best you can, don't be sad and get nesting on the other side.

How's this? We'll all pray for so many orders once you've settled you won't even notice that you were closed for two weeks :)

Well, of COURSE Lucifer has to try. It's Halloween, after all.

Fabulous shoes. Perfect for clicking heels! Have a smooth move. I'm sad to see you leave Lawrence, too.

I'm wishing for you uneventful move, full of fun, food and frozen ice cream! (sorry that 3rd f was tough) I know how tough this kind of move is, we did the OH to CA trip 7 years ago with a 9 year old, 2 year old and a dog in a Pontiac Aztek and all our crap in a scarily big moving van.

Jill said...
