We've just come back from a camping trip, where we spent a lot of time over the days watching 2 spiders build their webs inbetween 2 of or tentpoles. Aren't they just incredible..
Beautiful eggs, such warming colours.

well, these first experiments on wood are quite successful ! I'm puzzled by the stone, though ...

the stone was dyed by nature in the fish tank by the algae coating the crocheted lace. The cotton disintegrated but it left its mark on the stone.
The fish are not win the pond outside.

Those wooden stones make me weak in the knees. I had a similar result as your aquarium stone with the doily-covered rocks that are in my garden. So cool.


amazing, margie- that intricate dyed wood!


you should make more of the stone pieces
I think it's an amazing result
didn't think wood would dye that vibrantly


me encantan tus fotos y tu espíritu, haces que me haga adicta a tu blog....y me enseñas a detenerme y observar el maravilloso tesoro que tenemos en la naturaleza, gracias!


I really like the deep purple you achieved. That stone is amazing. i just read in the comments how it was "made". When I first saw the last photo, I thought the bud was the spider. It was only on looking closely that I realized which was the spider.


I love how the eggs turned out. I had not thought of dying wooden eggs before.

I read to see how you dyes the stone , as it looks very nice with the design on it.
Very amazingI like tiny petals and the raindrops on them.also seeds and seedpods. The other day saw ladybug larva crawl out to the sidewalk.
