Ribbon Embroidery

This is a small piece of embroidery that I did. I used beads and silk ribbon, and a flower cameo in the center.

Yet Another Orange

This is the end result the Orange sketch I posted a while back. Quite a difference, they are so different that I hesitate to call the first one a study for the second. This one is much more dramatic. It tasted just as good, too.

Valentine Surprise!

Oooh, look at what secret fairy Nature Trail has sent to the frozen south. Two bars of chocolate in wrappers in adorable wrappers, two pencils with shiny hearts on them, a pad of paper to draw on, a pyramid of green tea for inspiration, a candle for light to draw by, matches in a bird box to light the candle, and a lovely organza bag to put my drawings in. Lastly a wonderful sachet of lavender (how did you know?) to inspire my muse and make me think that maybe sometimes summer can be a state of mind, too.
All I can say is thank you so so much. You'll never know how welcome this was.

More snow, more cold.

More snow, more cold, more pictures of both. I think that once a year God should send us vanilla flavored snow, just to break up the monotony of plain-flavored snow.

Its Spring!

I found these in a garden center, nestled in the Astilbe.
