Exploration of Arkansas No. 1

 I can't not post tons of pictures from my first exploration.
Included in these pictures are sneak peeks
of things that will be added to my shop over the next week.
Hooray for being settled in! 
Hooray for exploring! 

Arkansas is full of beautiful things, like trees, swamps, moss and flowers. 
It is also full of creepy, crawly, poisonous things that got me so frightened, I screamed and alerted the entire mountain of my presence.
My throat still hurts from that scream.
And my abs hurt from laughing at myself.
Is this a copperhead? I almost stepped on it... It was a baby.
Yuck. Gross. Ew!
Okay, enough of that.
Seconds before my snake encounter.
I will be posting that skirt on Etsy!
(well, the duplicate I made.. I liked it too much and wanted one for myself) 
I know what you are thinking...
"Doesn't this girl ever get sick of pictures of moss and trees?"
No, no I do not.
But I do know how to explore other places...
Next time.. I'm going in that house!

You know that feeling.. when you feel like you are falling in love? 
But you kinda don't want to because you are not supposed to fall in love?
I shouldn't be falling in love with Arkansas. 

But I just might be. 

If you wish to advance into the infinite, explore the finite in all directions. 
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe 


  1. I am LOVING the new stuff! I absolutely adore the color combinations. I pretty much want it all! And the pics are fantastic.

  4. wow, i did not know arkansas was so gorgeous? why did i not know that? haha

    can't wait to see what's in that old house!!

  5. (i might have screamed at the snake and spider pictures)

  6. The last time I tried not to fall in love I ended up marrying him!!! OH by the way! I LOVE the skirt!!! You're going to have to stop making such cute stuff your going to cause me to go broke!... I mean it, my cute husband told me not to look anymore! although he loves both headbands that I got from you!!! and my necklace! Oh and speaking of creepy crawly things, your mom once told me that Arkansas was full of ticks and that she had to do tick searches before she went to bed... She pretty much ruined my whole idea of Arkansas and now when I think about it there I think of ugly dead plants and ticks... But I have to say your pictures are beautiful (except for the spider!) and I think that it has helped my image of the place!!! I'm glad you're all settled in and actually likeing it!

  7. Oh I don't get tired of trees and moss!! I love this kind of posts. You're awesome.
    And you look drop dead gorgeous in all those pictures.
    A big hug!!

  8. Don't forget about chiggars! They are little pets that like to come home with you along with the ticks. Just put on bug spray before you go too far into the woods. I love the pictures! You are beautiful!

  9. I love the can never post too many =)

  10. Awesome! I'm so glad you like it there. :)
