First Moth

 
Just when I thought I had nothing for Critters
 Look who appeared
First of the season
It was escorted back outside after the photos.

Six Word Friday - Limit

Limiting myself to one photo today
 
Snapped these gulls on an outing
to a state park one winter
Just an amateur photographer and was
pleasantly surprised to see one highlighted

A Moraine Mosaic Monday

Some may have viewed my previous post  at
where I mentioned a stone mason of long ago.
 
A moraine is any glacially formed accumulation of unconsolidated glacial debris ( soil and rock) that occurs in currently glaciated and formerly glaciated regions ...
 
We are located in the area of a 'moraine' created at the end of the ice age. The sand stone for these homes were quarried on and near the farm of the stone mason.
 
 
Here are beautiful examples of this craftsman's work.
They are the homes of three of his children
built around the late 1930s.
 Could the pattern of the stone be called mosaic?
 
This crafted stone sidewalk and carved stone mailbox post have remained in place at the stone mason's homestead
for many, many years.
 
P.S. As a child, I walked past this home on my way to our one room school house.
(yes, I'm that old : )

Love of Tapestry

The word tapestry derives from Old French,
meaning "to cover with heavy fabric".

It would seem that 'tapestry' is
woven (pun accidental) into my collections.
 
Here are Four Tapestry Thrifting Finds


 And these two are for Traveling
 
This one carries my thrifting funds.
 
This one carries my trusty Kodak.
 
This one carries my mp3 player.

And this one is for whatnots.

This one's travels span two generations.
 
This one awaits it's maiden voyage.
 
Something that encourages me is this
We see the underside of our
 life's tapestry from below. God sees
our life's completed tapestry from above.
