Quick update: Grand Rapids and new prints

I've just come from doing battle with scale on my rosemary plant — boooo! We brought a bunch of the herbs inside for the winter and very quickly both aphids and scale emerged. Of course, I didn't notice until it reached infestation proportions. So I spent way too much time this morning swabbing every surface of the rosemary with rubbing alcohol. Argh. Not an easy task. And now I feel like I'm crawling with scales.

Anyway… back from Grand Rapids. Lots of fun! I loved exploring Wealthy Street — it has so many great little places to explore and feels very urban. I also had a chance to run out to Grand Haven (above photo) and see a piece of Lake Michigan — gorgeous! It really is like looking out at the ocean, though without the saltiness in the air and on your lips. The show there was lots of fun, too, and I had some request for more colors for my Wellington boot, so here they are… my favorite is the polka dots. All to be added to the shop soon, soon!


  1. Glad you enjoyed my side of the state! Isn't Lake Michigan gorgeous?! We are at the beach at least once a week in the is very interesting in winter, too. I love your polka dot boots, too!

  2. Love the new boots, Nicole! The lake looks gorgeous - and a little cold. :) Have a great weekend - xo Pam

  3. Thanks, Pam and Gypsy Moon!! I LOVED the west side of the state. I can't wait to go back and explore more when I have a bit more time. I'm extremely jealous of the beaches -- gorgeous!! Have a great weekend, too!
