10 Years Later

After Buddy passed in 2009, tilegypsy.com was born as a way to heal my broken heart … such a fine guy … so … Happy 10th Anniversary to us. 😉

Years earlier … my intention was to become a brick and mortar shop-keeper (I was) and tile artist (I am) who taught herself how to design websites (I did) and would live happily ever after until … the universe kept showing me the door … not once,  (I’m not a quitter) not twice, (pack-unpack) but 1/2 dozen times. Thanks for your patience, Robbie.

The truth is … my intentions always show up – eventually – and I rarely turn my back on them … this time was different … the wretched (being kind) side of the human element literally forced me – with a good pummeling – to get off my butt and take a completely different path. Bravo. Mara Lee, take a bow, you rock!

What I’ve learned from this saga is simple … be very careful what you wish for … because … there’s no doubt that your intentions will show up and when they do there’s a very good chance – at the start – that they won’t look anything like you thought they would.  Insert patience of a saint here.  My suggestion after being force-fed enlightenment is  …  arm yourself with a case of Kleenex, Fiji water and plenty of snacks … that way you’ll have a better chance of riding the courage wave, until you reach the shore.  You can do it water boy;) #hidave

In memory of my sweet Budders.

Goals

The goal is to empty the storage lockers, not glue the glass on glass window for the bathroom.

Look at the cool 70’s macrame book unboxed … no macrame cord of course. Wonder where that is?vintage-macrame-book

It’s a vicious cycle.

 

Break in the Action

Bob thought it was a great use of my time to unwrap, set up and photograph a glass chicken collection.

More Bob …

Shattered Pieces

Haven’t unwrapped my artwork – which, by the way, looked a heck of a lot smaller in the brick and mortar.

If the moving gods weren’t good to me, so be it … I have glue and a garbage can.
