Get thee an Etsy shop NOW!

My mother has been painting silk scarves. They are simply STUNNING. OK, maybe not an Etsy shop (she doesn't have much interest in running a shop) but a boutique for sure. They are just gorgeous.


So we dodged some tornados Monday. Apparently, 7 tornadoes touched down in Hall and Jackson County. Where was I? Flapping my yap with my mom on the phone while Scott was frantically trying to reach me to tell me about the tornado sirens going off and the tornado headed right for us. I remember telling my mom that the rain and wind were getting worse...

I've been hooking up with a lot of people from high school lately on the time suck known as Facebook. As I have mentioned previously, high school was not a fun time for me. I didn't fit in with anyone, had no tight friends and no dates really, and it made high school hard. At the time, I was pretty ok being in my own little world and I didn't really want to be a part of the 'popular' crowd but it would have been nice to have a group of friends to hang with. Of course, 20 plus years later and it seems so silly. I mean, what was so wrong with me then? Meh. It has been fun to 'see' folks again via Facebook, but I still don't plan on attending any reunions.

Those are fantastic! Most of the handpainted silk I've seen on etsy is batik. I haven't seen anything as detailed as what your mom has done! Gorgeous.

I think I must be the class of 2003's version of you- ALWAYS in my own little world, not really fitting in with everyone. If we were the same age I would totally have been your friend in Highschool- you're the coolest!
