White Wednesday Drawings

 Love these pictures from a nature book I have.

No, she is not from the nature book....
although she looks like she is naturally grumpy.
These are from a cute kids books I have.
 Wonderful drawings.

Happy White Wednesday!!

Nature Collage

This is a collage I did some time ago using a pressed leaf.
I love gathering while I am out on my walks.

I added one of my bird nests in a pocket, 
a special word from the Lord..and
a little doily flower.
This is one of my favorite nature collages.

Preserving Nature

 Sometiomes it's fun for me to get out the old dictionary
we used to acutually use to look up words.
The last few years it has been the drying place for 
wonderful gifts from the Lord that I find while on my walks.
 As usual, blogger lets some pics be right side up, and others not...
but today it does not matter.
The leaves are beautiful either way.
 This leaf is almost as big as the page.
The biggest leaf skeleton I've ever found.
 How about the two tones in this leaf?
and, in case you think I punched a hole in
That perfectly round hole is where a buy chewed.
 even scruffy leaves have a beauty to them.

 these two skeletons are so beautiful.
Perfect Fall colors, and shape.

Well, variety is nice, I guess.
For whatever reason a few of these pics are giant economy size.
What next blogger?????

Right side up, sideways, or upside down...
large or small.....
I hope your day is filled with sunshine and smiles.

Simple & Fun Ideas

 old brush to hold watch faces, or photos....
 make any old candle holder into Fall decor by adding cheesecloth, and a spider.
(spider comes in package of spider rings at Dollar Tree).

 Candles. These were bright white candles,
not great for my shabby Fall decor.
I held them by the wick, and drizzled yellow paint down the candle,
then rusty colored paint, then some brown.
Now I have some shabby Fall candles.

Happy Tuesday and Blessings

White Wednesday Decor

You are looking at one frustrated blogger as far as photos go. 
I so appreciate all the ideas and suggestions but nothing seems to be working.
Maybe I can figure out how to load into Picassa.
Right now I load my disc into my HP printer.
you will find tons of wonderful white photos to enjoy!

Blessings all
