I hope you have all had a lovely Easter Weekend! Mine was good but busy because I spent most of it in our garden digging, putting a new drainage system in and designing the layout but apart from a very very sore body every evening ~ it was really good and peaceful!
Whilst tidying underneath out willow tree 'Salisbury' I found something really neat! It was a piece of her bark which looks a bit like a ladle I think!? I also have older little treasures from nature that I found last fall. I am thinking of combining all or most of them together in a new creation. I might have an idea already but I am not going to say anymore right now. Once completed I will of course share with all you lovely bloggers!
Here are my little outdoor pieces ...
This piece of bark is so neat!
A little dried maple leaf with it's little seeds ~ I am amazed that the leaf is still so green!
My little wasp 'house' and last but not least ...
... some lovely dried flowers from my garden!
So ... now I just need to find the time to sit down and start creating. Right now my outdoor project is #1 because I want to have it finished before my birthday in June and believe me I will need all the time I can get, that's how much work there is to do. Once I am finished I will share photos of the result. I love before and after pictures but to tell you the truth I can't remember if I took before ones.
That's all for today my dear friends. Please keep dropping in here at Todolwen in the next few days ~ I have finished my latest creation and I will share it soon!
I hope you are well and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day,
Nature is amazing...ReplyDelete
