About Me

My photo
This blog started out as a way for me to display and sell my handmade jewelry creations. I have set up shop on, where my shop name is "Dreamin of Beadin". The link to my Etsy store is located on the right hand side of this page. Please check me out!! If jewelry's not your thing, then check out the site anyway ~ there are plenty of talented artists selling lots of cool things there. For your reading pleasure, this blog will serve as a sneak peek into what's going on "behind the scenes" in my world. I love to cook, so there will be plenty of recipes, as well as product reviews and the occasional product giveaway (woo hoo!) I also love to take pictures of anything and everything, and I just bought a new camera, so there will be plenty of photos. And I like wine too, so things could get pretty interesting . . . Thank you for your support of me, Etsy and "all things handmade" :)


My Little Friend

Help ~ I'm turning into my mother!! First it was the oddly domesticated behaviors, i.e. cooking, baking and gardening. Now, I'm becoming a bird watcher!
Last weekend while we were planting, this guy sang to us for most of the day. It is a male Baltimore Oriole, which is not a terribly common bird to see in Michigan, although they sometimes vacation here in the summer. I haven't seen one in person since I was a little girl. They make unusual nests and I remember bringing one to show-and-tell at school, after the birds had decided to fly South for the winter.
This one has decided to build his summer home in a large tree that stands in the yard of the house behind us. This was the best picture I could get of him, seeing that the tree is extremely tall and he was high up in it. I haven't spotted his mate yet, but the females are not as colorful. I'm assuming he has found himself a mate, although he croons an awful lot, so maybe he is still looking for her!
