These bins are the only thing I got at the Porstmouth Flea last weekend. The woman selling them told me they were old bins from a tobacco factory. The primary colors are what got me, but I also really love the metal detail on the edges. I don't know what I'm going to put in them yet, but I'm hoping I'll work them into my show display sometime.

I also stopped by the farmers market. It was really nice. The only think I got though was some handmade vanilla mint rose lip balm. Going to farmers markets makes me really excited for Douglas to get home so I can cook for him again. I really miss that. Has anyone been going to farmers markets so far this summer? There's a bigger one in Virginia Beach I want to get out to soon.

I took these photos when I visited earlier in May. I just went back to take some more things this past weekend, and they had already gotten so much more neat stuff and rearranged a few things. I'm really happy to be included in the awesome variety of handmade things this shop has. I also love how my things look with how the old house and how they've decorated. So that's an added bonus.

It's really just good days and bad days, good weeks and bad weeks. I miss Douglas every day, but some days it hangs over me more than others, and it feels endless. Other days I'm just really proud of him and of us, that we're getting through this. It will be so amazing to be together again. I try to think about that most days.
I've kept busy, and for the most part, it's been kind of a cool year. I got anykind into three new stores around Virginia. I've done some fun shows so far and have been working on a website to get everything in one place (still working). I've made some new friends and have become closer with some really awesome people here. I took a terrarium class. I went to Amsterdam and Paris with my dad and spent a week at home in Georgia, and it was all amazing. I road tripped back to Norfolk with my best friend and got to have her in Norfolk for a week. I've gotten to know where I live a little bit better. I've had some really good days where nothing really happened. I got a new sewing machine that's really old, but that deserves its own post.That's what's been going on with me. In the past couple of weeks I've felt the urge to pick up posting again because I miss sharing stuff, and I really miss taking so many photos. I started with a small redesign of some things on the page, and I changed the name to anykind so things are more cohesive with everything else. I haven't changed the web address yet, so Well It's Okay will still be around for a while. If you're still here reading, thanks. See you soon.

This is what a few of our last days in 2013 looked like. We had cloudy, rainy weather. We went to the top floor (the 25th) of the tallest building in Hampton Roads. I went to a yard sale at a huge, old house up the street. I left this fawn behind but filled my passenger seat with armfuls of old fabric. We listened to the new Britney Spears song "Perfume" about fifty times. We had some much needed normal days at home together. Douglas's holiday break started today and we're getting ready to go home to Athens, Georgia. I'm excited but it's a little surreal because he hasn't been home in about two years. I just want it to be a really good trip.
This is a weird time. Usually I get really excited at the end of the year because you can make plans for next year and think about how much better everything will be. But right now we're looking towards Douglas's deployment early in 2014. He will be gone most of the year. And it's hard to make plans or think about any of it too much, really. I hope next year is a good year. I hope Douglas's experience is safe and that he learns a lot and gets to see a little bit of the world. I hope I can keep it together and do somethings I have been wanting to do. I know we'll make it, but I hope we do more than that.
Happy New Year to all of you. I hope to see you around next year.
