There is a little old cabin across the street. It's been vacant since long before we moved here 10 years ago. Every now and then, I like to venture in, and imagine who might have lived there. Was it just a little hunting cabin, or did someone actually reside there on a regular basis? Behind the cabin there are two buildings that have long since fallen down, leaving the little old cabin all by itself. Within the cabin sits an old table, an old couch, an old bed frame, and several small odds and ends such as these tins shown above.

I am going to be making a mosaic stepping stone for my garden when spring comes. In the meantime, I've been collecting broken pieces of stained glass, broken pieces of tile and ceramic plates, and other odds and ends, to complete the project with. Here's a few pieces of broken stained glass. I love all the pretty colors and textures!

Our dryer quit on us today. When my husband disassembled it to see if it was fixable, we found these behind the barrel, perfectly shaped little spheres of various sizes. Quite odd, but also quite curious. Playing around with them, my daughter and I made a miniature solar system out of them using a tangerine as the sun. Neat aren't they?

I went on a weekend getaway to the Upper Peninsula last summer. The first night we were there we stayed in the little town of Paradise. I was lucky to be up at sunrise to catch the sun coming up over Whitefish Bay, which is a part of Lake Superior, and not too far from where the Edmund Fitzgerald sank.
