English Bird.

I loved seeing Sue from English Bird at Crafty Wonderland.
Her sewn creations always catch my eye and my heart.
The little faces on these fabric friends are just so sweet and pensive.
So darn cute.

More Rock Painting.

I've been completely obsessed with Julia Rothman's book Farm Anatomy.
Last week it was sunny and I sat in the backyard and painted rocks from Falcon Cove.
All the while browsing Julia's gorgeous illustrations. 
Daler-Rowney in white is my preferred ink with a teeny tiny brush.

Hope to see some more sun this week in California!

Crafty Folks: Famille Summerbelle

This not only reminds me of so many trips to "The City" as a child,

what amazing skill and patience.
LOVE it.

YES PLEASE rolling rocks.

YES PLEASE to rocks rolling in and out of the ocean.

YES PLEASE to women's hands that do and hold so much.

YES PLEASE to art supplies that bring inspiration and creativity.

And YES PLEASE to making something of all those wondrous things.

YES PLEASE, Cherry Blossoms.

Here is another thing I would like to say 
Gorgeous pink cherry blossoms in spring that fill my heart
with glee and hope after a long dreary winter.
They fill up the trees until not another bloom would fit,
and then rain down in a pink puddle parade.

YES PLEASE to cherry blossoms.

i LOVE goats.
These are two new friends I met this month.
Scout is on the left, she lives on Hwy 53,
and has a incredibly nice owner
who will let a city girl pull over her car
and pet that goat for a long time.
The goat on the right is only 24 hours old,
and her human companion Brad
not only let me pet her, but also hold her.

These silly goat creatures have my heart.

I've begun looking through the camera lens
differently these days.
Sometimes I see something that I LOVE,
and I think "YES PLEASE."
I would like a second helping of that please.

I'll show you more "YES PLEASE" pictures soon.
