Nature's Art

I'm sorry, I can never figure out how to delete pictures when I accidently post them, in trying to delete the one I ended up adding two more---ops.

Hi everyone, I just had to pop in and share some photo's that I took this afternoon. The first two are of nature, simple and beautiful. The others are of just a few of my great finds this morning. I'll be posting more over the next couple of days and also I'll be working on my Halloween blog so be sure to stop on by. I'm not sure what this vine is, I'm thinking it may be Jasmine but either way it is a favorite of mine. Every year in late summer it climbs to the top of the big camelia bush and blooms so beautifully. It has such a light coolness about, so delicate and lacey. It is always so calming and comforting on the hot, sticky late summer afternoons.

And this is the Crepe Myrtle tree, we had such a nice cool rain this afternoon and the bark of the Crepe Myrtle is a true work of art.

This is my favorite find this morning. It's an old fireplace pot but I like to think of it as the cauldron of some wise old witch. The handle has been replaced and as you can see it is straight out of the barn. I'll post more pictures when I get her cleaned up.

One sale had lots of americana and this is just one of the items I bought. I'll post pictures of the others between now and Monday.

I found this at yet another sale. I'm going to paint and distress it and pile it high with pumpkins! I'm starting to look forward to autumn now. Brother was my Halloween buddy, we always decorated and celebrated together. It won't be the same this year. I can hear hin now, he would be saying "just how many pumpkins am I going to have to help you bring home to fill this thing??? " but he would be right there helping me pick out the pumpkins and gourds and making sure that they were arranged just right.

This red basket was at the same sale. I just can't pass up a red basket of any kind. I hope you are having a pleasant weekend. I've got lots of sorting and rearranging to do but I plan to have some great pictures for you soon.

Bright Blessings.
