This is the leaf of the potato vine, a very invasive vine that smothers everything around here, but isn't the leaf so very pretty? Like a heart.
This is some sort of fungi. The ground is full of them, and they look really cool. There's an ants' nest in the middle. This is a good view of FL soil, SAND, SAND, and more SAND. I live 6 miles from the sea...
This is Beautyberry. Aren't these brightly magenty berries gorgeous? Every fall there are clusters and clusters of them, but I never see any birds eat them. Maybe they are just for beauty, as the name suggests..
Cheerios and Chex mix until the next time!
The image in the mirror is the underside of the overhanging tin roof at the shop where I paint furniture. It protects my paint booth from rain, though there are some rust spot holes.
Weather is cooling off, in the forties last night. Brrrr. My tomatos are really going brrrr. They don't like temperatures under 50. They will wear sheets tonight.

Fall is coming even though we're still in the 90s here in Florida during the day, but the mornings are dewy and actully somewhat cool. Yay!
I've got my garden going for the second time this year. Will post some pictures of that later once the plants get a little bigger.
Keep on creating!

Live Your Dreams--what else is there to do? Life is short!

The opening in this frame is 3.5" square, and I'm debating whether to put a mirror there, or do a collage?
The frame already reads "follow your dreams."
I've been making more colorful tiles lately, and I;'ve found more objects to use as stamps. I also embed pieces like mini keys into the clay. This piece doesn't have that, but I'll post some other pictures.
Just do it! (create that is.)
My bosses, the owners of the Purple Moon, Sherry and Roger, and myself.
I have a garden and they supplied the plants to grow my winter garden this year. Yay!! Happy, happy...

Toward the end of my toils, I squirted out a glob of violet paint from a tube, and it went all over Bailey's paws. The canvas is so large it covers the chair where he usually sleeps. He didn't react even though I took a super wet paper towel to his paws. He just let me rub the paint away, but his yellow stripes now have a violet tint... Bailey, the punk cat. That should put the fear of God into his rival, the black stray tom with no tail.
Sunny here so far. Everyone is waiting breathlessly for Fay to land. I have to keep my rain flip flops handy...

Made some polymer clay tiles last night and they came out nice. They are going on a small mirror shortly. Maybe tonight...
