I hauled the old coathanger peace sign I made many years ago with the blue lights wrapped around it and a few items of jewelry and ornaments (even a MSU hockey helmet in the center for Jeff ;o) It was one of our few holiday decorations. It would go for days and all of a sudden the lights would start blinking instead of holding steady. The little plate of a boy in the window at the left is called "Daddy's Home" and my nephew Dana gave it to me.
I'm not sure which position these photos will end up as I'm always surprised that things don't go the way I plan and then I either can't figure out how to edit them correctly or just say, what the hell!? but wanted to just share a few today. I use an old Canon T-50 35 mm and haven't delved into digital yet. I'm able to get one copy of prints and a CD to download for about $12 for 24 which is always a thrill for me.
Last night the Full Moon was out and we got over 10" of snow. The giant black walnut tree you can see behind the peace sign in the window was all covered, but the moon's shadow of it on the snow and the snow glinting like diamonds all over made me put on my pink Crocs with the fuzzy lining and go out in my nightgown so I could look at it all around 2 a.m. I need to figure out how to do night photography because it looked like constellations all over the ground. It was very surreal and I loved it so much.
OK, over and out for now. Much love, warmth, peace and joy from your SisSTAR xoxo
Kinda hard to see the full mystical branch of the Tree of Heaven here, but to the right there is an opening like two serpents kissing (or a Claddagh sp?) and to the left it seems to be a tuning fork or a dowsing rod, and the well is behind the original 50 foot tree to the right (not part of photo). Many branches fell years ago and we left them, and this one is so awesome. You can see how tall it was.
The Angel Wing begonia was given to me by my "Other Mother" Margie less than a week before she died in her sleep Oct 1994 as a cutting. It tripled in size this year. Sits on top of the TV in the SE corner of the living room. To say I have orange walls and purple drapes makes some want to be ill, but I like to call it Terra Cotta and Raisin (actual names of paint/drapes). I have a southwestern thing going on in there which I love.
