Lost in Time!


For some reason I have lost several days since my last post.... no, I have not left the planet or been hiding under anything that resembles a rock ... the time just slipped away as it has a tendency to do at times. We have been very busy campers with this and that...work mostly....finishing up commissions and starting New dolls for EBAY Listings.


On our 'down time' ... we work on our TIPI... getting lost in a delicious world of Peace and tranquility.... forgetting about all things pressing in our lives... and just focusing on another place and time.... we love it.


At this time we are making various items to 'dress' our little 'home' ... which requires working with Rawhide, various leathers, metal, beads (all sizes) Paint etc. We are enjoying the historic research aspect of working with the TIPI (always one of our favorite things to do when we create our Dolls) what is used, why it's used and how long has it been used that way....fascinating ! Our plan is to eventually 'comfort out' the entire inside so much so that visitors will not willingly leave...but rather choose to lay back in comfort drinking wine or cider, enjoying a small fire and speaking of things that please all....this is our perfect world... a world we are so enjoy creating.


From time to time I will add pictures as the Inside progresses...


For now I have added a pic of Richard and Tess enjoying some afternoon cider...since this shot we have changed things quite a bit...adding a flagstone frame around the fire pit and a few new wool blankets and herbs, necklaces and leather items.


By a Native American friend we have been given the camp names of 'Gray Badger' and 'Storyteller' ...we wear them with pride...


Enjoy...

*Ya'at'eeh (Navajo), 'Gray Badger' & 'Storyteller', everyone should have this incredible 'Take Five' TIPI space. It's really wonderful that you two have created such a peaceful place to zone in & zone out & get energized too! I've seen the outside photos too & WOWY WOW, absolutely beautiful!!!
Here's To Real Sincere Inner Peace & Love,

Thanks so much Lyndy for your wonderful comments... you are right, everyone should have a place of zen...I highly recommend it!!
As for our little Tess....we call her 'Soggy-ja-weeah' ...as she LOVES to swim...to the point of becoming 'soggy and water logged'....
She is Frog Spirit!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday..

Hugs

Jodi
