DC Hat/Cap


I'm coming in late for the DC this weekend (phew!)...our host Tammie Lee has chosen the theme
hat/cap and since she makes such wonderful and whimsical nature pieces I thought I would follow
suite -A tree in a cap :)
Please check out her blog for more hats/caps- I know I will !

In between all the yard work (yes it's finally begun) I've been doing this week,
raking, raking, raking, picking up sticks and raking.
I am really enjoying all the emerging life around me...


Farrah (our lone hen) has been busy too pecking, scratching and nesting
alongside my raking, raking, picking up sticks and more raking...


One of my favorite events- a real harbinger of early Spring
is the chorus of tree frogs and peepers that sing non stop around our house.
Here is a little sample...



I decided to pay these small but vocal creatures a little homage with the  cut out leaves...
hope the video works!

Dc- Nest



Ariane has given us the theme Nest this week



So I thought I would share my little collection of nests 
I've been gathering over the past few seasons



empty nest or full I have always been amazed at the 
engineering and ingenuity of nest builders!




For more nesting please visit Arianne's blog Rose to see more
 and have a wonderful weekend :)

A little ceramic update and finally some spring-ish weather!
I made these little containers with holes to hang them and was so excited
when the plants went in but I completely forgot to buy hooks to hang them from
So they'll sit for awhile.
My kids have learned about "Photobombing" ! and have informed me
that I am no longer safe taking pictures ;)
Hope your off to a good week!

drawing Challenge- WATER


This weekends theme "Water" from Patrice was a lot of fun to play with


 How can you not think of water when painting! 
As it is a vehicle that moves the pigment around your page


It is also the only element that can be found in a solid, 
liquid or gaseous state on our planet 


It is so vital to everything we know that it is often overlooked.
So thank you Patrice! for giving us a chance to remember.
Please visit Her blog for more on the theme Water!
