A walk in the Park

Pennsylvania has some wonderful State Parks, and the state boasts that every resident in PA is within 30 miles of a state park, which by the way, are still open. The governor has been talking about closing state parks in order to make the budget work. I really think that would be a crying shame! Yes, I love my state parks, and strive to visit each and every one of them!

So, since today was such a gorgeous day, we decided to take the dog for a walk to a park we've never been to. Decided to go to Marsh Creek State Park, in Chester County, and what a beautiful place it is! I'm just going to share some pics!

Sailing on a Fall day!

A view of the lake

And this is the best one of all! I thought it would be really funny if I could get my dog to drink from a water bottle...She needed absolutely no encouragement!

So, that's my day in the Park!

Pixe's Newsletter, Sept. 2009

Pixe's News September, 2009

I love the month of September! When my son was younger, it was back to school, and peace and quiet for a few hours. Now, as I’m older, I look forward to the cooler fall weather, and the changing leaves! I find so much inspiration in fall...It is truly my favorite season!! Perhaps this fall, I will fill the gas tank, grab my sketchbook, a few pencils, and take a fall foliage drive!
What is it about September that you love?

Caring for your Handmade Jewelry, Part 2
Last month we discussed the general care of your handmade jewelry. This month, the topic is storing your handmade jewelry.
To keep your handcrafted jewelry looking new, storing your pieces properly is important. Always store your jewelry in a dry place. Leaving it in the bathroom will only cause it to tarnish quicker...This is fine if you like that look.
If your jewelry came in a plastic bag, store it prevents tarnishing and will prevent scratching.
Storing is easy...just keep in a clean, dry spot, and your jewelry will look like new for years to come!
