Altered Envelopes

These extra offering envelopes, rescued 
from the trash, seemed to have 
some alternate possibilites.  
With acrylic paint, collage 
and a gold paint pen they are 
now decorated for another use.

A quantity of them might make
a very clever tall/narrow booklet 
if attached along one edge...

A Frosty Morning Stroll

Just after sunrise I bundled up for a walk.  
It was 25 degrees Fahrenheit outside.  
I could see my breath- brrrr!  
A bald eagle flew off from a tree near the creek.  
That was a lovely surprise.

Leaves and grasses were rimmed with rime.  


Upon my return, the neighbors' ginger cat 
came running up to me, 
expressing his discontent with the cold.  

"Hello" roll
"Nothing to the right of me..."

"Nothing to the left of me..."
Always keep the bird feeders in sight...
I think he had been hanging out under the porch.  
Nothing like a warm feathered thing 
for breakfast on a freezing morning.

Gaudy? Bling?

I used glitter, Magic Mesh, sequins, charms,
bling trim, aluminum foil, Washi tape,
fancy fiber/yarn, patterned tissue paper
and Capri shells for these collages.
So much fun!

A Walk in the Forest

Friday was a lovely day for a hike among evergreens and deciduous trees.  The path was covered with leaves.  Fortunately, blaze-markings and the occasional arrow on the trees made it easier to follow.  Here are a few photo's from the adventure:
