Here's what winter looks like in Ukraine. The first is my front yard and then back yard both taken from my second floor window. The last is back yard from my kitchen on one of the few sunny days we had. In winter we can easily go 30 days with no sun. It's really a mixed bag, as the clouds keep things warmer. On the days when it is sunny, the temps drop way down. These are what it looked like when I left there 3 weeks ago and my husband says it has dropped much more since then. I return there on Sunday. After southern California it will be another adjustment, but I will be glad to be home, nonetheless.

I like looking at tutorials around the net...and there are a lot of them out there, but once in a while I run across one that is good enough to repeat here. This one will get your imagination going. Enjoy and let me know what you think of it.
Another vintage artist trading card (ATC - 2 1/2 x 3 12 inches). I love using the old buttons, lace and trim. I've been collecting since the 60's, so a lot of what I have is quite vintage. It all gives such a lovely touch to a piece. Hope you like it.

I just saw the cutest fairies made from Chelsea in the U.S. She can do cards where you insert someone's name or she actually does the cutest little hanging fairies in any color theme you want. The fairies are made with silk flower petals so they really are quite a garden fantasy. Stop by her blog and see for yourself how cute these are.

How does one encapsulate who they are in pictures in their day-to-day life? Well, I've made a stab at it below. It covers some of the things I like to do at home and out in the world. Hope you like it. Let me know. I love your comments and always am encouraged by them. Gardening is one of my summer pastimes. I have a large flower garden. My husband took this lovely iris shot last summer. Photography is his hobby, but I digress.
