Thanks Karen for putting all of this together. I've enjoyed going through last years blogs.

 I can't say that I really have a creative space. If I did I would have to include my house and my yard. There are no dedicated areas or rooms. I started blogging a year and a half ago and enjoy it thoroughly. It's fun to visit other blogs when I have the time.

Most of my posts start with photographs that I try to say something about..I have over a thousand photos now..It's hard to pick my favorites but here are a few.

Miss Mollie

These two are frequently the subjects in my photos. 

Sir Max

I feed the birds..

I have a small pond that attracts lots of critters.
You can see the newly hatched ducklings from 2007.

This is probably my all time favorite photo.
This Mallard has made her nest against the back of my house by my pond for the last seven years. Until this year, I have witnessed the eggs hatching each year. I found the ducklings the following day in the wetlands nearby.Five out of the nine are still around. There is still egg shell on her bill.

We have very few trees.

Three frogs..12 o'clock, nine o'clock and four o'clock.


This frog laid her eggs in my neighbors fountain. It was full of tiny tadpoles when he went to clean it out. She's a lot smaller now.

I "stamp" greeting cards but not as much as I used to.
After all, one can only use so many.

I DON'T do counted cross stitch any more..but..I made this for a neighbors daughter who recently got married.

Gardening is one of my passions.

Here are my constant companions.
Well, that's me in a nutshell...thanks for visiting.

fairyrocks said...

You do take the most amazing photos. I think the way you view the world is the most creative space. Thanks for sharing all your gorgeous pics.

Robin said...

What a refreshing post and I LOVE that all (well, most) of your favorite pics have animals as the subjects! I also love that you have enough sense to allow Mr. Max to lie on the counters if he wants. What's the use of making him move? You KNOW what he's going to do the minute you turn your back, LOL.

Speaking of which, come visit my folk-art-y "studio" (aka dining room, LOL) when you have time! You might like my feline supervisors/fabric pressers.

I will definitely be back to visit! Thanks for sharing those great photos!

My Little Corner said...

You have the best studio ever! Your home and the great outdoors. I also love to garden and feed the birds. I am hearing grosbeaks as I am typing this comment. We had a sweet Llasa Apso that passed a few years ago and your pictures have really made me miss her. Maybe it is time for a new baby!

Thanks for sharing!
