Hi, I'm Shel

Did you know veggies can regrow from their stumps? I was surprised to learn this a while back, and even more surprised by how fast they sprout. These scallions -- as tall as their papery skins at the start -- added inches to their height in just a few days. Amazing.

At some point, regrown vegetables need to be retired, since without the nutrients only soil can bring they lose vitality over time. Until then, through multiple rounds of growth, though, they bring delicious flavor and pretty garnish to home-cooked meals, and make a handy, and supremely easy to maintain, kitchen garden item.

A pothos clipping in a sea-glass-filled Mason jar... chunky beads made by a local artisan... a sparkling, faceted crystal... and a frog prince — the whimsical, cheerful sill of my studio window. #luckyme

I love sewing, soaping,
nature, reading, people, birds, Disney, coffee, & fleece

Musings and messes and magic and fun... the happy scrapbook of a creative, grateful life.

Sometimes I link to resources that I use personally and thus feel comfortable recommending to others. I participate in the Amazon Associates program, so when you purchase using my links I may receive a small percentage of the sale (at no additional cost to you.) Thank you for helping support indie artisans!  I will only recommend what I know and believe in; never just to be compensated. So when I write that I use and love something, you can trust that I really do.
