One of my favorite movies is My Neighbor Totoro, I loved sharing it with my niece who love nature and collects acorns, when she turned four, I made her this necklace. Wooden and brass acorn, with glass leaf on brass chain.
Late night in the garden watching the moon cresting.
Glass, crystal and agate adorn this lovely black and bright light blue necklace, wirewrapped in brass tone finished off with a blue rose. This has found out to be my most popular necklace on Instagram. I wanted the feel of a neon sign illuminating the darkness.
My mom told me the other day that there was a nest just outside my sisters window, When I visited for my sisters birthday I was so excited to see this, I took this photo still inside the house through the front window. its hard to tell but there are 5 of them. I really thought that the nest was beautiful there are still dried flowers attached to the stalks that are weaved in.
A few weeks earlier I had went to my sisters rose bush to clean it up a bit after all the blooms died and I found this little guy just staring at me,he wasn’t scared so I took this quick photo
He seems to live at the very bottom of the bus,h in the center of where the canes branch out, He will climb to the top of the rose bush look around then snuggle back into his thorny lair.
I am really pleased with this photo I took from my garden. Bachelors Buttons, also known as cornflower is the source of the color cornflower blue. This beautiful flower retains its color very well when dried and is even edible, tasting similar to a clove
This single white bloom popped up the other day. It may not be as lovely as my other poppies but I found the little brown specks on antique white petals charming. I am really fond of the center of poppies so intricate and beautiful.
