Happy Birthday

Thanks everyone for your comments and assurance that you have plently of hard drive space left! Guess I'll continue to do my part to "fill 'er up"!!
Love hearing from you!

Trying to spend as much time as possible outdoors the last few days as the weather is beautiful! Yesterday I washed windows to let that sunlight shine in to full advantage!

Had a birthday card I needed to get mailed out, maybe you can use this little sentiment and flourish on one of your projects.

Acorns & Oak Leaves

After a very dreary past few days I finally get to see the sun today! After listening to the rain on my roof early this morning the sun is trying to make a comeback.
Loving it!!

I've not had much feedback lately.
Are you, my friends, able to use the latest files?
Or is this stuff getting old to you?
I know there are a lot of great designers sharing files now and more and more sites and memberships to purchase too.
Have you gotten your harddrive full??
Anyone have any thoughts to share?
I'd love to hear from you.

Here's another cut to add to your fall file collection.

A Bumper Crop

We've had a wet late summer/early fall here. And that has lead to a bumper crop of fungi! I took a walk around my yard one morning and snapped photos of quite a variety of toadstools - a myriad of shapes, sizes, textures and colors.
These were the largest - some as big as a small dinner plate!

These looked teddy bear soft!

Cute little quartet.

So delicate when you get a close look!

They take on a whole new look as they begin to dry

Must have been perfect growing conditions here!!

My parents will be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary early next year, so my mind is starting to work in that direction. Cut from gold metallic paper or vinyl this may work to embellish an invitation. We'll see . . .

Mushroom Quotes:
*Falling in love is like eating mushrooms, you never know if it's the real thing until it's too late. ~ Bill Balance
*All mushrooms are edible - once (CAUTION: don't try this at home!!)
*You must grow like a tree, not like a mushroom ~ Janet Erskine Stuart

A Special Day

We visited a local festival over the weekend. When I first heard of the "Country Ham Festival" I was unsure just what was being celebrated - maybe ham radio operators or country performers "hamming it up".
Nope, nothing that complicated - it celebrates country hams - the kind that come from pigs of course! There were pig races, hog calling contests, craft vendors, food vendors features pork cuisine, lots of fun things for the kiddies

and a contest to see who produced the best country cured ham.

Just goes to show that any day can be a special day!

Herbs, Birds & Leaves

I've been spending time outdoors the last few days - after 2 weeks of daily rainshowers it is so nice to see the sun shining!!
My Pineapple Sage plant has grown so beautifully this year - and the hummingbirds love it.

This little lady kept me company while I ate my lunch on the patio yesterday.

Today's share is a skeleton leaf. It would look great cut from metallic paper or heat embossed after cutting!!

*Quick as a humming bird is my love, Dipping into the hearts of flowers-- She darts so eagerly, swiftly, sweetly Dipping into the flowers of my heart. ~ James Oppenheim
*Watch the hummingbird, she teaches us to hover in the moment and appreciate its sweetness.

I did a little playing with my hummer photo how do you like her in neon?
