Earth Day

Where would the earth be without the glorious sunshine? No warmth, no growth, no life.
We have been extremely fortunate the last couple of weeks to have been able to enjoy the most wonderful autumn weather. I just had to pop outside to take this photo before the evening sun dipped below the hills.

Thank you sunshine!
Thank you Earth!

Coffee, Tea, or Me

The Diva's Weekly Challenge #312: "Coffee, Tea, or Me!"

Big decision ......coffee, tea or let's go spicy with some splotches of turmeric!
A quick paste of turmeric and water and splat, no splashes though, it was a bit thick. Love the colour, it reminded me of daisy centres so they blossomed into blooms just for the northern hemisphere spring.

This Opus tile was inspired by last weeks challenge of a circle and square string.

Hidden Gems

It's a warm autumn day here in Tassie, the grass is very dry and we could do with some rain to freshen up the garden. During the heat of the afternoons I have been happy to hide away and tangle.

Happy New Year

The last tangle for 2016........and it's an Opus tile!

As usual my thoughts drifted in and out, about the year gone and the year to look forward to. I was thinking of all the wonderful tangles that we have learnt and those glittery bright gems.
Many ideas for this Opus tile popped into my busy mind but as I slowed and focused drawings just fell into place around the petals. This is when I stopped, thought...... balance, don't over do it, know when enough is enough, appreciate what is already there, elegance of limits and be content.
I am going to try and keep these thoughts with me this year, remember to recognize when to stop talking, stop eating, stop complaining, stop the busyness. Also remember to keep life balanced, be content and try and be a little more elegant!
