I Heart Macro - Camelia

I love the sun and shadows on this one.
At this point there are only 1 or 2 flowers open on this big bush.
Often they will not only have the white in the center
but splashes throughout the rest of the leaves.
I'm sure I'll share the Camelia again as it fills with forgeous blooms!

A stunning Camelia in my mom's yard!

Blue Heron - WBW

Another first for me, picture of Blue Heron's at one of our local Rookeries!

The rookery is in a large open space next to a park and ride.
When we first got there they were flying left and right over us in the parking lot,
I couldn't contain my excitement and I think my squeeling and screeching scared them away.
They started mostly flying to the outside of the treeline so if was tough to get pictures.

This was one of my first shots,
 they just walk around on top of the branches and collect sticks to take back to the next.

Very tough to get good pictures when you're jumping up and down.
I'm very happy I got a few decent ones.
You can bet I'll be going back.
Probably every weekend while they are nesting!
I'll contain my excitement and hopefully get some even better shots.

I Heart Macro

This is the tulip I used in macro a few weeks ago when it was just starting to open.
Now they open every day and close at night, they've been going for several weeks!

Here they are all in a little group!

Rhodie bud just about to pop!! I can't wait!

The one Rhododendron that is almost fully open in the entire yard!

And of course the girls were out with me taking pictures
 and I always have to take pictures of them too, gorgeous Ginger above!

Adorable little Shasta!

And another of Ginger!

Aladdin's Lamp

Aladdin's Lamp

I did not buy this Sari Silk or these Lampwork beads (by BeadAddicts) with the intention of putting them together but as soon as I saw them near each other on my table I knew what I wanted to do!

Maybe I should have saved these for the Earrings Everyday blog but I could not wait to share them.

I'm really digging Sari Silk lately and I love stacking beads one on top of another in some way and I also don't often make earrings without using some of my components,
but I think these are perfect just as they are!

They are listed HERE on Etsy!

It's Official!

I got this sign for the back window of my car back in November.
 The warm days needed to put it on have been few and far between,
 today was the day!!

It was quite easy and looks very nice don't you think.
I got it on Etsy from

Tell them I sent you!

I Heart Macro - Sari Silk

Today's Macro is one of my newest purchases of Sari Silk, isn't this Pink stunning!!
You can find it at Mudhound Studio!

Here's the entire bundle, tough to pick a favorite!!

But I think Pink take it by a nose so you get 2 close ups of the pretty Pink!

That's my Macro and I'm sticking to it!

Copper House and More BTW

I love this house, I'm looking forward to seeing it fired!
All these pieces I'm sharing today have yet to be cleaned up so don't mind the rough edges.

Some leaf shapes in a variety of textures.
Tribal Paisley, Imperial Garden and Sea Urchin.

Love these little love tags, also a pair that says cute!
 I can see them as earrings or as hangtags on the end of bracelet or earrings closures.

Winged Things, large Bracelet focals

Triangles in Paisley

Here's the triangles with 5 holes across the bottom, oh the possibilities!

Hoping to fire this weekend if not before as usual.

Bead Table Wednesday

A little late today which seems to happen alot lately!
