Of marshmallows and generous friends

I was tickled to receive this note from Vicki Bailey about Art, Nature, Creativity, Life:

I’m reading from the back to the front… ­čÖé And today I came across the stick tight story and boy! could I identify but I would NEVER have thought to make them into art. Creativity is SUCH an amazing thing. I just love you for all that oozing, amazing creative spirit and for taking the time to share it. Today I was called the marshmallow on top of the hot chocolate…if you like that image, I would like to share it with you because you are DEFINITELY one of MY marshmallows!

Thank you, Vicki.

Inspiration and The Garbage Day Project

December Lilac

A lilac blooms in ice in December. Of course, in our last ice storm everything looked like this. Beautiful to see, but very hard on the plants.

There’s a new post in The Garbage Day Project today.
