He Loves Me He Loves Me Not

Childhood memories come to mind you remember picking flowers and saying He Loves Me He Loves Me Not........I don't remember having this many daisies to pick from. My flower pot is busting at the seams with lovliness.
Maybe You remember looking at cloud formations and naming them. My friend Mary and I  used to lay on the grass looking up and find all different things. Funny, we also used to try to figure out how many telephone poles it took to get up to heaven. I still have lazy days when I still do these things. Life is precious. I wish you days of daisies.

Poppy's Gypsy Girl

My dad was known to everyone as Poppy. He was the greatest man in the whole world. He raised me after my mom died, I was 12. When I got my first apartment in the late 60's he always said he felt like he was going to get his fortune told when he visited. Yes, I had quite the eclectic place. Beads, candles, Lanterns and lots of Goodwill furniture. I loved it!!! Poppy passed in 1994 but he is in my heart always.

Almighty Sky

I love to capture the painted sky. Tonight was exceptionally beautiful!


St. Frances Shrine

This wire rack used to hold votives but not any more. I will collect the rest of the six and continue hanging them. Does anyone have an opinion if it matters if I hang it upright? I have an actual bottle tree and all the bottles hang upside down to catch the bad spirits.  I want to place flowers in each bottle to make it a shrine. I don't think St Frances minds the beer bottles:-) I hope your day is lovely.


Blue beer bottle

Who would think a beer bottle could be so pretty. Well, my husband did not, he threw the bottle away. Silly man................I drilled a hole in the bottom, wrapped it with wire and now I will add some crystals to it and hang it outside. Beautiful eye candy!!

For any of you that love crosses like I do, here is part of my collection. I love religious artifacts. I have a collection of St Francis in my home also. He is the patron saint of animals and ecology. When given the chance I like to visit old churches and missions.
I will post more pictures....please accept my attempt at the photography.
My daughter bought me this on a little train trip to San Juan Capistrano. It really is quite nice without the flash glare.  I'm trying:-)

Lonely Orange

This is the last orange on the tree.....Well, I must confess, it was the ONLY orange on the tree.  I gave it lots of TLC but I guess it just wasn't ready. 
Small but juicy....little tart. Maybe it's a lemon tree????

Valentine Angel

Valentine Angel

She is keeping watch over the flowers in my garden. She must take naps though because something finds it 's way in and eats them while she is sleeping. As I speak, my wire haired fox terrier, Maggie, is digging her way to what seams the bottom of the earth to get a gopher.
I hope everyone enjoys a beautiful Valentine's Day. Hearts go out to all of you:-)

winter sky

I know we have all seen a picture with the sky as a background. I forget sometimes how serene a winter sky can be. We all love beautiful sunsets, but there is something to be said for this beautiful masterpiece. May you find Peace with all the beautiful works of God in the sky.

Let the fun begin!

Ok, so this is going to be my first attempt in a while. I was inspired by a fellow blogger, Linda. I can't blog if I don't try....right? Drum roll please......................
