sap and tins

Okay, it  may be a little early in our relationship for me to tell you this, but... I've missed you.

I have received some lovely comments lately, even in my absence, and it has just warmed my heart and made me smile. Thank you.

Thank you to those of you who are just stopping by for the first time right now, thank you to those that have been reading since February ( if there is anyone in that category!)  thank you to those of you who  read but do not comment, and thank you to those who take the time to let me know that you are here, that something I have said or made or shared has meant some tiny thing to you.

It is really a wonderful thing, this blogging. I still feel so new at it. I still feel shy about it. I still feel like I don't know exactly what I am doing here. But I do know that I enjoy sharing my little finds with you. I love hearing from you. I love following links to what you write about, what you care about, what you make.

Okay, I am done being sappy for the moment. Onward. 

My camera hasn't been working, which is why I have been so scarce. I love taking pictures -  as you know, it is one of my favorite things about blogging. I have found it hard to get a post written without my usual photographic accompaniment! I am still jonesing for my own badass camera, but for now I am just happy to have the borrowed one functioning! Finally, I got it the battery to hold a charge again, so I took some pictures yesterday.  I can't wait to show you some of my recent estate sale goodies! Next time, probably.  Still gotta clean em up a bit and upload them.

From the fall:

I love the typeface and the blues on this little tin.

This one is kinda neat:

While I'm at it, might as well show you this other tin I found a few months ago:

It's pebbly.
