Arboreal / Julie Prichard / the land of lost luggage

This is a flowering plum we planted out further on our property.
It looks so nondescript at the moment, but wait till fall and spring!
This was such a great idea, Julie!
I've already enjoyed perusing other bloggers trees...and the
gift of sharing come fall and here's a girl without
tunnel vision! ah ha!
A Chinese Pistache front of an oak and next to a mimosa.

mainly...the trunk

Dulling our Senses...

I understand now why some bloggers check out for awhile...
more than one reason, here.
i'll be back much later with hopefully fresh or refreshing
ideas and comments.
i'm leaving with this little humorous post...
down below these sandaled feet is where i slept at
my sister cookie's this last week...and this is where
i stuck my glasses just before shutting my eyes.
i made this beach angel for cookie over 10 years ago
and just can't believe so much time has past!
below...this pic, i hope you enjoy the rest of her.

sometimes, people get these big ideas...
and i am loving this one...
if you wander over to
she explained earlier about our collaboration.
she thought of it, and thought it out to the end,
better her than me. and what a grand idea
this has been for me!
first of all, i've always put my journals together AFTER
making the pages. i find this so inviting to open a book and paint away!
Also, this reminds me of following misty, and painting every single day or putting together a collage.
the challenge brings out the best in me (mostly) pushing to DO...and i am loving it katie!
i won't show anymore pages, well maybe some, heh heh heh!....
