indigo bunting


This indigo bunting was on our back fence and was startling with its bright, solid blue coloring. I've not seen one before or since he and his mate came around last Spring. They were here for a short time, gave us a little thrill and went on their way. Spring is coming and I'll be keeping watch. That is one of the keys to receiving blessings...just look for them. They are everywhere!

bess's lamp

This lamp belonged to my great-grandmother, Bess. The shade isn't the original, but when I saw it in Uncommon Objects in Austin, I knew it would be perfect, as is, on this special lamp. Together, it's one of my favorite things.

framed eggs

Birds' eggs are tiny, fragile little jewels. I enjoyed working on these and marveled at the detail and perfection of each one.

karen's toms

I can't remember why, but I'm sure there is a good reason that the only pictures I got of these were taken in my car with my phone. What in the world?!

more pillows

These two are large - 20 x 26 and 22 x 22 - and look great, if I do say so myself, on a sofa or bed.

I painted these eggs on old ivory piano keys. Once again, combining my love of music and nature. I've got 13 framed and ready to photograph. I'll post pictures of them as soon as I take them.

Happy almost-Spring!
