.: My oldest son holding a nest he found - Mama placed in a few 'eggs' :.I am inspired by the natural treasures found right outside of our door. The inspiration that is found in nature lasts much longer than just a day. It enters into my dreams while both sleeping and while awake...
.: Three little nests for my three little ones :.
In this new landscape around our home the ocean lives alongside the woods and fields. I enjoy mixing these varied treasures together from the collecting baskets that are at hand as we head outdoors!
.: Eggs masquerading as stones? Or stones masquerading as eggs! :.
Simple, smooth white stones gaze up at me from the sandy shore as we walk along the beach. One stone in my basket very quickly turns into two. (With three small treasure hunters by my side our basket soon becomes very full!)
.: We are nesting in this new place and enjoy finding these two homes in nature--a honeycomb and nest :.
As we settle into this new home, it is a beautiful surprise to happen upon a bird's nest and honeycomb, both intricately designed homes that will each host little ones of their own...
.: The diverse landscape begets such diverse nature finds! :.
In this new season of Spring it is a delight to resume treasure hunting outdoors with the sun once again upon our backs. Nature seems to leave so much in our paths, especially in the time of newness and growth that is spring.
.: Some of these sea stones remind me of the wool-felted variety! :.
.: A collection of nature sits atop a favorite in my collection of aprons. All are "hand-made" :.
I appreciate the work that goes into each individually crafted piece--both by human hands and by the work of the creatures of the earth.
.: We have become accustomed to finding river stones gently tumbled by the energy of the river. It is interesting to observe the shapes the ocean has made crashing against these stones :.
.: There is such depth to the intricacies found in nature :.
.: The trees around are home are covered in such interesting moss! :.
What are you discovering or collecting in your corner of the earth?
Peace to you in the newness of this season. May creativity inspire your every day!
