Dragonfly Spoon

I lose track of what pictures I have posted.  Hopefully I have not posted this one before.  I don't remember writing about how he made it.  We had some old spoons that were once part of a windchime.  The fishing line broke and the chimes fell apart.  So he cut off the top of the spoon and used the handle to make the body of the dragonfly.

Swirlly Pumpkins

This card along with the one I posted a few days ago, were part of my September card class.  I know it isn't October yet and it says Halloween.  We always make cards at least a month before the holiday.  That gives them time to get them made and written in a timely fashion.

Fall Flowers

Even though it still feels like summer here and tropical storms are lined up in the Atlantic, autumn has begun.  All that means to me is that I started using more fall like colors on my flowers and trees.  Our leaves, for the most part, do not fall until the spring.  Very soon though we will feel the change in the season when it cools down just a bit.

Celtic Flower

Along with the Celtic look to this piece, it has those neat bubbles in it again.  Once again the largest bubble and the two medium sized brown bubbles are much prettier IRL.  I really like this piece along with the one I posted a few days ago.

Dragon, Puff

Do you remember the song Puff the Magic Dragon from the 60s?  Was it Peter, Paul, and Mary that recorded it?  I do know he lived by the sea.  I guess the bubbles around this could look like bubbles in the sea.  This piece is so much nicer IRL.  The largest green bubble is a really neat piece of glass.  This is a very unique piece and so different from Jim's other works.  I have one other unique piece that I will be posting in a few days.

Cedar Key Seafood Festival

We will be attending the Seafood Festival in Cedar Key again this year.  I was worried that with all the hurricane damage that it would be canceled.  I called this past week and it is a go.  So glad for them that they are able to come back from all the damage they had.

Fall is Coming

I know there has been some cooler weather in the north, but not too much here.  Today we tied the record high at 95 degrees.  But I do like to show things that fit the seasons so I thought it was time for another tree.  Talking about trees, our subdivision had lots of tree debris with hurricane Hermine.  Some neighbors even lost trees.  We didn't have too much but it still took awhile to pick it all up.  Now it is all out on the driveways and streets waiting to be picked up by the county.  We were fortunate though that we didn't have the damage that was just an hour or so north and west of us.

Fall Napkin Card

Where has this summer gone?  It is still hot here and we have at least two more months of heat and humidity but I need to start planning my fall card classes already.  I promised my group one more napkin card and then we are taking a break from them.  I think we may do this one because they are all sunflower lovers and it makes nice fall card.

Deer in the Woods

I think my fall class will also include one of these two cards.  Probably it will be a combination of the two.  I think I like the darker card base and trees but use the lighter color for the deer.   I think there would be more of a contrast that way and the deer would show up better.  What do you think?
