Mice and Tiny Bears Play Here...

These are the photographs that I use throughout
the year... Primrose in teacups~
Grape Hyacinth clusters in blue bottles~

Last fall I added peat, compost and manure
to a small bed that was struggling...
I found several bulbs in there that never blossomed.
I tossed them aside for the chipmunks and squirrels...

Instead of the critters eating them~
They survived the winter and are in full bloom!

Now that I know what they are... and that they
are eager to live~ I'll find a special place for them!

This afternoon I've set aside time for
some new fabric illustrations!

I think mice and teddy bears...
...and, well~

I'll share my new pieces with you here and
in my Etsy store~

Hope you have a sweet and sunny day!

These are so lovely Michelle. The colors, composition and everything just lifted my day. Happy Spring to you.

I think you could almost call your bulb surprises as "volunteers"! That's one of the nicest things about gardening - something always surprises us! :-)

I love those tiny Grape Hyacinths, I have oodles of them in my yard!!

I just found your Etsy shop. You do really neat, creative and beautiful work. I'd not really thought of using fabric to draw on. I think I might have to give it a try. Thanks for the inspiration!
