in a quickie this morning.
this is the front of our home...
the big front window to the left of the porch, faces west.
the setting afternoon sun
streams through the crystals hanging in this window.
10 of them. all shapes & sizes.
filling the room with shimmering rainbows.
colorful prismatic beams moving about the room as the sun sets.
color. light energy. healing. balancing. tranquility. magical.
the other day sam noticed this odd looking *egg sack* ? *cocoon* ?
dangling in a spider web.
so i took a picture & then tried to find out what it was.
turns out to be the eggcase of the Basilica Orb Weaver spider.
next day, i spotted another one on the other side of the house.
...and here's the abundant Golden Silk Orb Weaver...
(aka: banana spider)
abundant, because they're all over the place!
they always seem to weave their webs between two trees...
while hiking (since i'm usually looking at the ground for treasures)
i'm forever walking right into them!
last week i received a couple of SURPRISES in the mail!
yeah! REALLY cool stuff!
cindy @ bug safari
had a bunch of butterfly wings that she'd been hanging on to
for a long time. she couldn't toss them out...
but didn't know what to do with them either.
so she sent them to me! wow!!
THANKS cindy!! i feel some creative energy starting to flow!
in the works...
one window art coming up...which will be heading across the country to CA! :)
and then another amazing package...(a gift xchange)...
loaded with gorgeous handmade textile card creations!
(and a couple of XTRAS! fossils!! wow!)
THANKS lorna @ Artymess
speaking of art...i'm working on something new...with a deer jawbone.
something from the 'fractal forest'??
before i squeeze my way out of here...
i'll leave you with a couple of yard visitors!
a little hummer...
barred owl. catching some daytime ZZzzzzz's.
stay cool. journey safe.
I believe that there is a subtle magnetism in Nature,
which, if we unconsciously yield to it, will direct us aright.
