Luring Them In

Today I saw at least 7 butterflies and 2 hummingbirds...not repeats! 
The flowers lure them in so I can spot them from the kitchen window.

Hummer After Summer

It's Autumn according to the calendar, 
but the Hummingbirds are still here. 
It makes me happy, happy, happy!

Web Design

Once again I stand in awe of an intricately designed web!
How does a tiny spider know how to do this???
Because his Creator equipped him with 
the knowledge and ability to do so! 
Another proof of truth.

Dancing Morning Light

This picture was taken with the morning sun streaming through the window,
causing the light sparkles from the vases to dance thru the curtains!

Fried Cornbread

A relatively thick cornbread batter fried in a skillet like pancakes. 
Oh yes!   With a light potato soup for lunch.   Just right :-) 

This batter had about 1.5 cups Aunt Jemima Cornmeal Mix, 1/2 c. sour cream 1/4 c. water, 
1 large egg, and 1 tsp. sugar. Mix together and drop by ice cream scoop into hot oil.

Not Yet Mature

After some time of research, I discovered 
these birds are juveniles, and not yet showing their true (mature) colors.

To see how amazingly different they will look when they are older, click here! 

They are so awkward looking...such big feet and long legs for that body,
but it enables them to walk on the plants just above the water in search of food.

Wading Birds

My husband surprised me with a trip to a cattail marsh, and he brought the camera too! 
It was a fun challenge for us to find different birds and try to capture clear shots,
and then to identify them when we got home. So many amazing creations, 
and at least one more to come that I'm still trying to find the identity to.

Going, Going, Gone!

I am a people-watcher... always have been. 
When I was maybe six or seven, I can remember my Dad getting so frustrated if we went to a restaurant. 
Why? Because I was so busy watching everyone, I could hardly concentrate on eating my food. 

So this photo intrigues me. I know the man is posed behind a prop. And I know the background is 
just a painting. But what does it represent? And who was he? And what were his interests?

Anyway, this was a tintype photograph that I listed in my Etsy shop, and within an hour it sold! 
I'm working on putting new things in my shop almost daily. Some vintage, some handmade...
and I'm bursting with ideas of more I want to do. So please check it out! :-)

More Pink

Waiting for a new sister! 
And big sister says baby may sleep in her dresser drawer.
How generous is that? LOL
