Today I am 70. I share with you a photo of my beautiful antique Lion birthday present from my husband Travis! Isn't he (well, both of them - gift and giver) grand?!!
I've thought about this milestone for sometime, but this morning it doesn't seem daunting at all! I'm being taken out to lunch by my dear family and will enjoy my gifts of art, books, and candy - and of course this great Lion (no name yet) throughout the day!
Life is good!

I'm always on the lookout for objects to use while photographing my little bears and bunnies and elephants and turtles and kitties and....
I recently found this glass mushroom at our local Farmers Market which also features clever crafts from time to time.
And just take a look at what this is! A bottle glued to a bowl! The lady who created it had a whole booth full of recycled and reclaimed items which might otherwise be discarded. I'll add her info as soon as I find her business card....must be here somewhere!! Clever lady!

A brilliant day in southern Virginia - and a fine day to visit historic Jamestown! These are photos from a visit we made in August.
May I share some of the sites we enjoyed this day?
We travelled across the James River on the ferryPocahontas!
Locals bid us farewell!
The three ships constructed to match the originals: Susan Constant, Discovery, and Godspeed were amazingly small for so many to have traveled on!
We enjoyed the detail of each building in the recreated Jamestown Settlement. Here are a few shots around the village:The Govenor's assistant - dressed in wool on a very hot day.
The one glass window from outside
Some locals.Herbs drying everywhere!
The herb gardenAnd my special favorites - the Sunflowers!
What a grand day!

Here's a special little Fairy Butterfly bear made from silk fur. He's such a sweetie (made for a special birthday gift) and I've been having some fun with Photo Lab on my iPhone.
What do you think??
And now for my Grandkitty Frodo!

This sweet Little Miss arrived on Easter! I made her for Kim from a pattern from Mo Malron at Crochet Objet. I've ordered cotton from her Etsy shop Crochet Objet and used that for little bunny's body.
I'd like to take you on a photo shoot around the cherry tree in my front yard:
The blossoms start out white and turn pink before they blow away. They are never on the tree long enough.
Happy Spring to all!!
