The other day we walked along the 1.5 mile boardwalk (one way) in the Smyrna Dunes Park in New Smyrna Beach, Fl.  We couldn't get to the lighthouse on foot at least not from where we were walking.  I don't think I've ever seen an orange lighthouse before.  Actually, we did a 3 mile round trip walk.  Once we came to the end, we didn't realize that was the parking lot the car was parked in so after a bathroom break, we turned around and walked to the beginning again!

It's a bird sanctuary, but honestly, we didn't see anything unusual except a few tortoises, which, of course, aren't birds :-)  It was a beautiful day for a walk - not too hot, slight breeze.

One Million Acts of Kindness

I was out shopping for shoes.  I didn't see a single pair that begged me to take them home.  I did espy this fantastic bus sitting in the parking lot.  I couldn't resist taking some photos.  Unfortunately, the driver was no where to be found.

A rose is a rose...

Even though these roses are destined to be tossed out, I think they are beautiful.  Yellow roses have always been a favorite of mine.

Another surprise!

My little Christmas cactus which resides in my studio is blooming!  There are a number of buds waiting to pop open - makes me so happy!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!

gift giving

It's that time of year again.  There's always someone on my list that is hard (impossible!) to buy for.  I like the challenge of making something instead.

Using simple materials (oatmeal box, masking tape, plaster tape, wood bead, head of industrial bobbin), I created a lovely box to hold a number of my personally designed note cards with envelopes.
