Happy Animal Wedensday to all my AW friends. I so enjoy seeing the Cedar Waxwings in the Hawthorn Trees eating the berries this time of year. It won't be long and they will have eaten them all.
On a cold gray day
Hawthorn tree, squeals of delight
Waxwings share berries
I was inspired by the Cedar Waxwings calling the entire time they were feasting on berries. OSI had Echoes as the prompt last week. I am still behind due to Thanksgiving preparations. Lets face it. I always have an excuse. ;) I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving.
I am going to get a head start on thanksgiving by thanking Sherry for letting me paint the beautiful photographs she takes. This painting was of cedar waxwings in her garden eating dogwood berries so those of you who think these berries looked odd for hawthorn berries, you were right, they aren't hawthorn berries.
It is that time of year. The Casa is put away. Not many/any blooms in the garden. I will just have to dream the winter away awaiting time to have some lovely blooms to post. I miss the Casa already. There is a big hole in the garden where it usually sits. Happy Blooming Tuesday anyway.
I want to thank Soulbrush for doing an ATC trade with me. I just love her work and miss her terribly since she has taken a hiatus from blogging. She is busy getting ready to move to a new home. You can see more of her work here. Hurry back Joss. I miss you.
When I was young I never wanted to play with dolls. My dear Mother would purchase one for me occasionally hoping it would take. It never did, until now. I have always admired art dolls. I have been facinated with them for ages. Some years ago I played with polymer clay and ended up making a couple of heads. Now what says I to self. Well, the heads sat around here for some years and one got broken. The other sat perched on a bottle for awhile. Then today a friend of mine who makes hats gave me a bag of her scraps. Oh Mz Muse was exhilarated. My first art doll was born.
I found it difficult to take a picture of her tonight. You can't see all the details. There are a lot of meaningful things in/on her. She has a blue heart.
On the back you can see the music that is in her heart. The song is Amen, Our Hearts Cry. She sort of looks sad to me. I am not sure why. This is why I chose this song. But she is beautifully dressed due to my friends generosity. This was fun. I can see more dolls in my future. Aren't Mothers always right??
