A Stormy President's Day Weekend

Wind and rain
Watching Eagles circle and glide overhead
Then land in pairs on the barn
And on the beach

Exhilarating beach walks
A nice hot cup of tea afterwords

From Me to You

Sum of 2 Parts

New Garden = Golden Raspberry + Grass is Always Greener

Golden Raspberry

Grass is Always Greener

Grass is Always Greener + Harvest

= Hellebore

Spring Garden + Copper Penny

= Copper Patina

Playing in my studio
With beads rolling around on the table, and the floor
Restocking my Seed Bead Soup Collection
And finding more color combinations

Photography Lesson - Angle of Light

Since it was sunny, I asked 5th and 6th graders to bring in their cameras and we studied how the angle of light source affects photos.

Though all they had at their disposal was the school grounds, they did some amazing work - and learned to look at objects in a different light (pardon the pun!).

The white kale was taken between classes at a local nursery while I talked with the Event Coordinator hoping to get a photo/field trip to the nursery later this year!!!

Thinking of Roses

(Hint, Hint!)

And of rosy colors...

A New Bag of Color

Valentine's Day is just a few days away!

As lovely as it would be to find a dozen red roses on my doorstep, or a fancy package tied up with gilded ribbon... sometimes I need to nudge my hubby along - give him a little hint.

P.S. Sometimes I even need to buy it, then hand it to him to wrap...

P.P.S. Sometimes he actually never knows about it...

However your Valentine comes, I hope it is full of Color!

Take a peek here for details on my latest BAG OF COLOR
