roller prints

We've been getting busy printing..
this time with big grooved wooden rollers and rolling pins.
The blending of textures and color is exquisite,
not to mention a whole lotta, lotta fun!

Richard Scarry

Now this explains my toadstool obsession. As a child, I loved this book. It was always included in my pile of books to read before I went to sleep. Over and over and over. It's a board book so it held up with all the loving. Of course,  I had to have it for E & G, and have given it to many friends over the years.
But the best thing is that I know exactly where to find my copy at my mom's house.


I've been fascinated by the incredible toadstools I've come across the past few weeks. I'm especially keen on the way they shoot right up through the pine needles, moss, bark and fern in their varied shapes, sizes, colors and textures.
                              I think I'd like to set up shop under one and call it a day.

heart on hill

We were lucky enough to catch this beauty on our way out of town last weekend, and reminded ourselves that we would stop on our way home to take a shot. 
It happened to be fate or perfect timing or just life because the farmer and his friend were in full steam enhancing this piece of green art when we returned. 
Thank you dear farmer and friend for your heart.

to You from Me

     White doves in my back yard, 
dahlias in the front, 
nectarines at the orchard. 
 Life is full of gifts.
