Michael and I just watched an outstanding movie about a young man who regretfully moves back to his hometown after a failed career as a cellist in Tokyo and stumbles upon a career as a nĊkanshi, a traditional Japanese ritual mortician.   A beautiful film.

© I designed a jewelry cabinet awhile back, it was something I'd been wanting to do for quite some time.  The first one I designed for my own use and have since sold quite a few of them in varying colors and custom sizes.  Here's a sampling of some colors shown above.  We do custom sizes.  If you would like a quote, please email me through our Etsy Shop with the exact dimensions you need: Height x Width along with the color you want and your shipping zip code.  ; )
Depth on all our Jewelry Cabinets is 4.5 inches deep.

NOTE:  Knob colors vary.  I choose for you unless you need a specific color.  Please contact me before purchasing to see if I have the color you want.  I try to choose colors that go with or accent the color you choose for the cabinet. 

Choices;  Hinges can be Black or Rusty.
Necklace Hooks inside center cabinet can be Antique Gold or White. 

You can see all the different sizes and pricing HERE.

NOTE: The color of the Rustic Old Wood which, is much darker than shown! The lighting wasn't quite right when I took the picture.  Please keep in mind that all of our reclaimed rustic wood and rustic reddish wood; the wood color can vary some from piece to piece. We cannot guarantee the color will be exactly as shown. Can be a bit darker than shown and varied. It's reclaimed wood!

I've been having some serious insomnia issues for the past month.  On Monday I asked Mike out of the blue if he'd like to take off and go camping to Olema for a couple of nights.  I was thinking that since I sleep so good when we're camping that it'd be worth a try.  Well, by 11 pm Monday night after not falling asleep, I ended up taking a little blue sleeping pill to see if that would work.  It did and I slept in till 10 o'clock the next morning and it felt so good to sleep soundly.

We went for a long hike Tuesday to try to wear me out, not that I need any help in that department.  I've been feeling foggy and sluggish from not getting the proper rest.  I was also thinking that little blue pill was the magical answer and took one Tuesday night at bedtime.  Nope, it didn't put me to sleep.  I guess that's a good thing anyway because I hate the grogginess and dry mouth and all together hangover feeling I get from sleeping pills and I really hate taking any kind of pill period.

I'm working on several alternative things to help me sleep.  One is melatonin and another is a crash course on Biofeedback that my step dad instructed me on,  visualization techniques and I ordered this sleeping mask.  It'll arrive next week and I'll try it out.  I'm willing to try almost anything at this point.  I do think the melatonin is helping.  Also, getting early morning sunlight to help regulate my internal clock.

Here's the pictures from our camping trip.
Does Mike look happy to be going camping?

Michael added a roof extension over the garage door so when we're working, things can stay a little drier from the rain when we have the door open and are working on orders.
