In the Garden

Moss Pinks
These are extremely bright fuchsia but the camera doesn't do it justice.
Shortly, there will be a bright blanket of flowers around the light pole!

Our Baby Bird

We have a bird's nest up in our eaves. This little guy and his mama were on our front porch this afternoon. (I hope he is actually able to fly.) They were having a great feast on birdseed leftover from our squirrel a day or two before. So cute!

Project Morphed

I found some usage tips on the Gallery Glass website but I've decided that I like the idea of window clings so I will pursue the baby food jar idea with enamel paints and use the Gallery Glass to create window clings. Back to my Christmas ornaments!

Okay, so I've decided I don't like the Gallery Glass. It is very hard to control. I have a fairly steady hand but it is almost impossible to apply a clean steady line of this stuff due to its consistency. My guess is it would probably work better on a larger flat surface. I am going to go to their site and see if they have any pointers. Otherwise, I will use the enamel paints I have. Applied by brush, I know I can control these! I do like the little retro lights though.:o)

Garden Walk


( just wait til these open, they are GORGEOUS!)

These pretty little things are growing in my grass.
I'm going to transplant them to the flower bed if I can
(after I make sure they aren't some invasive weed)

(probably the last photo of these guys)

Here are the newest shots of the flowers. I hope to actually post some pictures of my current projects but they are all Christmas ornaments so I figured most folks wouldn't be all that excited to see holiday stuff in May. I will post them over the next few weeks but why not share the garden, it's awfully pretty!
