it's all about me & you, nah, it's all about me

as there always comes a time, when eventually you have to crater, to the questions and requests to see who i am...well okay, as me as the owner of The Enchanted Pathways Faerie Nursery, that you realize that perhaps it wouldn't be so bad after all.

i'll will chalk this whole hesitation thing up to, well thinking about it, for, that for some unknown reason that i just haven't been able to put a face on my company, on me. (yes, that reason being shyness. yeah, that excuse will work... but, okay, but those who know me, will tell you quite blatantly that i am anything but shy)

i will admit though that i have gotten better at talking about the company over the past bit instead of squirrelling away busy as a bee and keeping to myself.

has this hampered my business, YES, i can tell you that without a doubt that if you want to be noticed then it is a pretty hard sell when nobody has actually heard about or seen or met you!

with being a wife, a mom, a grandma (to 4 and currently counting) that i've always told myself that i am just being protect of those that i love but ummmm how is anyone going to know that type of personal information when i haven't even told you about it?

okay fine, i must admit, deductive reasoning makes sense when spoken (okay, typed) out loud and yes, that even shouting out from the rooftops, this type of noise can only help.

after much thought, a few cookies (a whole box to be exactly honest), a cup of tea or two (possibly more), i have come up with a history of this, this being the company and then this, this being me.

i really love what i put together but i really put a lot of hard work into it. (yeah, you can stop reading i work job is in a faerie nursery how much harder can a job get?).

so all of this painstakingly work can be found on the website under the tab named 'about' (yeah, yeah, yeah, i know, how original is that for a tab name).

oh, and,

p.s. ..... it is amazing that how easy it becomes once you start talking about you, that it just becomes easier and easier to do so. (um, but then again who doesn't like to listen to themselves talk about themselves?)

the photograph that i have put on my website was taken in this same photo-op. a massive thank you goes out to Chris who took the time in the sweltering heat to help me out.

so yeah, here i am!

this is me!

this is me....hard at work!

all eyes on the future

waiting for the future

for you to imagine

the dream that takes you away

to the illusionist and the 'abracadabra-ist'

beliefs of astonishment and awe-struck hope

to drifting away from reality

for the seer of tomorrow

coming with the fluttering of eyelashes

breathing to the top of your head and soles of your feet

to forget clutter that has ahold

for dreams to become faerie tales

whereas the future is found

the windblown look

to this day i recall my mother saying to me that her hair had the 'windblown look' to it. it took me a long time to figure out exactly what that saying meant. mind you, looking back, it actually did refer to when she was out and about on a windy day.

now when looking at myself, at my hair, i must admit i LOVE the 'windblown look'. mind you, i think that i might love to use different adjectives to describe this picture.

how about using some of these ones...

bouncy ~ wild ~ crazy ~ free ~ gusty ~ windy ~ airy ~  messy ~ beehive ~ swirly ~ ruffly ~ tangly ~ tousled ~ frowzy (yes, i really did look it up to see if it was a word or not -- frowzy {frowz*y  adj  scruffy in appearance}) ~ .. and i'm sure that there is an infinite descriptive words out there (mind you, i will need help with my handy-dandy thesaurus (and yes, i did actually have to look up the spelling of thesaurus {and yes, i still got it wrong and a kudos to spell check to fixing it again for me}) to come up with more.

okay, figuring that some of the above words probably got so off topic that they weren't windblown after all.

and, again off topic..i know that i have been very inconsistence with my 'random quotes' (hoping that some of my Instagram postings might make up for one or two but, but but....well my little nursery is kinda looking a bit 'windblown' right now...with boxes and containers everywhere with these next two seasons sneaking up way to quickly...

so here is a thank you to Jimi Hendrix for letting  me daydream...

"Butterflies and zebras
Moonbeams and fairytales
That's all she ever thinks about
Riding with the wind."

.. all the while ... riding with the wind.
