As to FRESH BLOOD, there was some on the sidewalk this morning alongside the garage. We have an owl in the neighborhood; sometimes you can hear him hoot after it gets dark. He spends quite a bit of time in our huge camphor tree. Occasionally we find fresh blood on the sidewalk, and it's right below a large knob in the tree. Guess that's his "plate".
Feel Peace in your soul. See you Tuesday, if the good Lord is willing and the creek don't rise! :)
Right now I'm weaving a basket. If I get it finished, I'll post it tomorrow.
Gee, did you get invited to the wedding? I didn't! :) Have a great, creative weekend everyone. Peace and love.
Lately, there have been really nice people touching my life. I feel really lucky, so I'm sharing some pictures relating to these nice people. THE POTTERY was hand-made just for me by the instructor, Jane, where I work part time. She was soooo sweet to do this. One is a pinch pot that holds essential oils and a tea candle. Sure makes my house smell wonderful. The other she gave me yesterday. Story behind it.......Some time ago I found this HUGE leaf in my yard. It must have blown there from somewhere, because my yard only has a variety of palms and a huge camphor tree (small leaves). The leaf was so big I had to save it, and I put it between two books and dried it. One day I took it to Jane, thinking she could use it for a pattern on some of her pottery. Yesterday, she brought this leaf pottery to me as a gift, made from a pattern of that very leaf I found in my yard. The back of it has a container that can hold water and fresh greenery, or silk. It can hang on the wall. I LOVE it, thank you Jane!! You are a "nice" person! THE EARRINGS....well, there is this sweet lady who works at the grocery store we use, and she knows I love Macaws. She was wearing these yesterday when my dh was at the store, he admired her earrings, and she took them off and sent them to me! (Some time ago I gave her a pair of earrings I had because she really likes BIG dangly earrings). So, this has come back to me, thru another "nice" person. I now have a small collection (of 3) Macaw earrings. One given to me some time ago by GPS Pamalatomatohead (grin), and another pair of Macaws that are wearing purple sombreros. I love my Macaws! And now THE HEART ... This is on the front of a hand made card sent to me by our own GPS GEMMA! The heart is woven of paper, fabric, trim, and a shiny, glittery thing in the middle. It's beautiful, and I've added this wonderful piece of art to my journal. Thanks Gemma, another "nice" person. And one more thing.....I received a "thank you" card in the mail recently (not pictured) by another sweet little Greek lady "Anastasia". She loved my Halloween spider errings, so I took them off and gave them to her. How could I not? She is adorable! So you can see that lately I have been surrounded by "nice", and I am truly grateful. Lucky me! Maybe I should check the stars???
It is rather chilly today, for Florida! The high is only going to be 73....to me that's brrrrrr. And it's windy. It finally makes me feel a little like Fall.
Last week I noticed that where our glittery Ms. GroggyFroggy lives is very similar to this painting I did a couple of years ago. (See her post where her man is taking off on his motorcycle or the background to her halloween pics, if you can make it past her gorgeous artwork!) groggyfroggy.blogspot.com/ We have friends that live in the same area, and they had a picture of the road leading to their home. This is a painting of that picture. I am posting it because it is definitely a FALL painting!!! There isn't much "Fall" about Florida. This painting, titled The Road Home, is Virginia.
Today I'm going to Art Harvest with some friends, an outdoor arts and crafts festival with over 200 artists exhibiting. Should be good. Last's week's visit to the Seafood Festival did not produce any good pictures. The festival was kinda blah......Hug yourself! You deserve it!
