Someone once said… “Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.”

Everything is on it’s way to somewhere

“Everything is on it’s way to somewhere”, ran through my mind as I captured this series of  images. The breeze gently carried each and every tiny seed across the field in a hurry. It looked alot like my life, with bits and pieces of me rushing about going here and there, without an inkling of destination.

Life has been busy this past week and I haven’t had any time to chat-a  sick child, me playing the role of baby nanny and a new job. My seeds were scattered in all directions but as things began to quiet down I headed out with my camera on a mission to capture the journey of life. It was refreshing and now my child has recovered, batteries are recharged and my seeds are ready for a new journey- destination unknown, of course.

 

 

This one is my fave and I will probably make it available in my shop when I get some time- who knows when that will be- Soon I hope!IMG_3760

These tiny seeds are wrapped in a ball of fluff, their design is perfect and the sight of them taking flight is beautiful .  I tried to capture the magic as I saw it but I think you just had to be there.

My little box of Obsessions and a passionate spell

IMG_3642 2

 

I think I’ve told you before about my little box of obsessions, haven’t I? A wooden tool box filled with little trinkets from nature, shells, rocks, nests and feathers. Ah yes the feathers, layers upon layers of  wispy threads woven together in a web of colorful heaven. I love feathers and marvel over their intricate design and pattern. I’m completely obsessed by the mere beauty and function they possess. I guess you could call it a kind of spell that drives my passion for photography.

Yesterday I interviewed for a position in one of my other passions, home decor. I was the least qualified candidate but yet I have hope that my passion and shear determination will win out over experience. I don’t intend to leave the blogging world or my little studio behind. I plan to blend my passions in an eclectic mix no matter how deep or complex it gets.  It’s time to spread my wings and expand my interests as far as I can reach. I feel hopeful as I sit on my porch and take a deep breath filled with crisp morning air. I’m light as a feather and my dreams are floating softly toward a new day.

Don’t be afraid to fall under a passionate spell- it’s a good thing!

Found words-through the lens…

IMG_3382 2

Until I fly away

Wrapped so tightly in a mystery that whispers like the wind in your ear, softly spoken but not without a stand:

it calls your name and beckons your soul to break free, finally free.  Do you live in your head?

Think of every word you may have written and each town you’ve ever lived in.

What did you say, who kept you warm, were you free, really free? It’s all in your head.

I am holding something precious, tightly, ever so tightly. It is the words to a love song, 

the recipe for success , a mystery with nothing more to say. Don’t live in your head.

You can see me, reach out and touch me, but only until I break free and fly away.

 

I have been busy putting together the “found words in photography” project for my Studio pink store. I hope to list a few sets later today. I love the green and brown speckled eggs in this nest. I believe they belong to a mockingbird.

I took a run through the field last night and came across a gorgeous tree just loaded with spring time blossoms. I couldn’t resist….

The blooms gave off a  slightly floral aroma that was dipped in an essence of  fresh honey as it dripped off the hive. Can you smell it? It was Heaven to my senses. I enjoyed every breath I took while under this tree. The pink buds opened to a creamy white sensation and the leaves were a fresh spring green. It was magic to my eyes and nose-perfection!

Enjoy the day!
