    A Thoughtful New Year

    Looking Forward ~ This is West Texas, and if you weather it, if you survive its harsh and unyielding initiation, you will find that it gets inside you, that you become as volatile and unwavering as this land, and that you Love it with all your Heart and Soul. Now, the question for this New Year and those to come,…

    Live Local

    This is an edited Repost from last year. The Idea of Shopping and Living Locally is as relevant and important a topic as ever. Happy Holidays… Close to Home Whereas I’m a proponent of Thinking Globally, I am also always aware of and trying to be mindful of what is happening close to home (Where the Heart is!) We need,…

    Wishing a Happy Thanksgiving

    Ode to the Food Holiday I can’t believe it’s almost Thanksgiving. However, it feels like winter outside in Fort Davis, Texas as I write this, so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised.  We at Somewhere Over the Rainbow would like to tell you all how much we appreciate you. We are Thankful and Grateful indeed.  And we want to wish…

    Almost Halloween

    It’s that time of the year again! Almost Halloween! At Somewhere Over the Rainbow, we kind of love Halloween. Before we moved here, I would put on a rather over the top Halloween Party every year, complete with wacky themes, amazing costumes, and all the best spooky food. It was an incredible amount of work. The first year without one was…

And this is the main reason the…

    Go WEST

    Here’s another post featuring a nearby #Small Business that we at Somewhere Over the Rainbow loves.  WEST is amazing! An Antique and Vintage shop just packed with trinkets, treasures and the unexpected. It’s every bit as offbeat and eclectic (maybe even more so ;-))  as we are and so much fun to visit. I could spend hours and still not…

    Only the One Earth…

    World Environment Day June 5th, 2022 I have been getting outside (mostly in my yard— I’m a wannabe permaculture gardener) a bit more since the weather has begun getting better. That is, if you overlook almost 40 degree drops in temperature from one day to the next, and my first Haboob since returning to Texas in 2020. I’m pretty sure…
