Autumn is here and the weather is cooler. Autumn is always a beautiful inspiration for me to start crafting again. This Summer was so brutal here, (100+ degrees for weeks on end!) and it really zapped me of all energy, especially the creative energy. I want to post my first Fall project. This was mailed overseas and the parcel finally reached it's destination, so I can post the pictures now. It was mailed to a lovely person, she loves nature, the forest, flowers, woodland animals and she creates beautiful jewelry inspired by it all. The forest inspired me to create this. It really was great fun and rewarding to finish it.

Well I have changed my comment settings so that I will approve all comments made before they are posted for all the world to see. I am sad that I have to do this, but I had some really disgusting comments on my last post by a stranger and I will not give then an audience. So I leave you tonight with a happy picture of my best friend Jake.

I found that glass enclosed shadow box at a great bargain. I decided to put two of my Cathy Cullis pieces in it. Next to that is my newest piece from Julie Whitmore, an owl beaker that I just love drinking my chocolate strawberry tea from. That old crow is made from a recycled steel drum that I found at one of my favorite summer arts and crafts fairs in Washington. I remember trying to figure out how to get it home since we were on our motorcycle that day. :-)

We had terrible storms here. We were under a tornado warning and a flash flood warning. I had never seen rain like that before, it came down fast and hard and did not let up for the entire night. The wind was wicked! The floods started around 1:30 am and stopped around 6:00am. When I was able to return home in the morning, I saw this little nest sitting on the side of the road. Some poor bird worked so hard just to have it blown out of it's tree. I hope that all the birds that made this home were alright, or maybe they were finished with it for the season. I had to salvage this and I will keep it somewhere special. This is probably the most perfect and beautiful nest that I have ever found. (and I only pick up ones that are on the ground, I would never take one out of a tree)....... Happily my home was safe from the storm. It is sad that some homes in town were flooded and there was some damage. There was also some damage to crops and farms. No one was hurt and that is the most important.
