I Heart Macro.........Circles



This week has gone by so quickly.....I had planned a post about last weeks junking travels but, came down with a nasty infection so I saw the back of my eyelids more than anything. Time is flying and soon it will be show time so this weekend I have spent working on washers...the colors are so amazing I really can't capture all the beauty. Thank you to my little hummer that sat and waited for me to vacate the porch so he could eat.....man you make a lot of noise!!(make sure to click on the pictures so you can view them better)



With the gloss finish it is very hard to capture the beautiful colors.



Oreo did come by to help(butted her face right into the lens as I was getting ready to snap)...she spent so much time entertaining our guests that she neglected her outside duties.....I have barely seen her since they left......




A few of the finished necklaces....

Browns and turquoise....a favorite of mine lately





Braided silk sari and hand dyed ribbon





Silk sari and wooden accents





Ceramic beads...wonderful earth and sky tones


My helpers and I did take our Sunday morning walk. They climbed trees and chased bugs while I snapped a few of my favorite flowers.................




Have you ever noticed the one spot of color on a Queen Annes Lace....they all have a red center!!







There are some wonderful pictures this weekend so go on over to Lori's and enjoy them!
