Etsy Banner Finally!

It took forever, but I finally figured out how to personalize my Etsy shop banner.  Not sure I'm in love with it, but at least it's my photo and not just a general border.  This was NOT as easy as it looks.  hehe

Gray Inside and Gray Outside ... Sigh

Going through a rough patch.  My latest Etsy photo should feel uplifting, but today it only makes me feel cold and alone.  Beauty with sadness for today, I guess.

"Lying Red On The Sidewalk" - Hearts for Haiti

Please take a look at my submission:
and all the other beautiful handmade items in the Hearts for Haiti shop.  All proceeds going to Doctors Without Borders.  Thank you.

I took this shot last summer.  There's a funeral home across the street.  I watched the flower-covered hearse pull away and saw this one bright red carnation lying on the ground like a spot of blood.  It made me cry.

For Your Valentine - Etsy

My latest on Etsy.  Thanks for looking.


Tried to shoot today but it's so gray and dirty and dead outside, I was left uninspired.  I can't wait for spring and color and life.  Sigh.

This is an Etsy collective of donated items from hundreds of Etsy shops to raise money to rebuild Haiti. 100% of the proceeds from this shop (minus Etsy fees and Paypal fees) go directly to DoctorsWithoutBorders ( ). This shop has permission to use the DoctorsWithoutBorders name and a separate bank account and Paypal account have been opened to maintain the integrity of this shop.

The children's perspective ...

Haitian orphans look forward to a new beginning

Glass Swirl

I love the swirl in this glass plate.  I cross processed it to mellow out the colors and softened it to give it a dreamy quality.

A friend and I grew out our hair and donated it to Locks of Love.  So easy to do and so needed.  Find out more at:

Face in the Wind

Just listed this on Etsy.  It's one of my favs from the summer.  Bought this windchime for my mom a long time ago.  Went outside and saw it hanging there and it just looked so alive.  I was psyched I got the angle I wanted.

My latest Etsy Upload -- Winter Colors in New England

I'm so excited that I managed to catch the gorgeous sky I caught last weekend at Lake Quannapowitt in Wakefield, MA.  It's available in my Etsy shop (see sidebar) if you'd like a print.

Blue and Gray and Red All Over

Strange times in the Bay State today.  Change is in the air and its color is red.  Making me feel a little blue.  The sky is gray and the city is dirty with winter.

Bare trees and sky and twisty branches are my latest obsession.  I'll have to fool around with a few of these later and see if I can come up with something.

Taking the Leap ...

Just getting things set up.  Might have to do a little rearranging.  In the meantime, check out my Etsy shop and let me know what you think.  Nothing ventured, nothing gained and all that rot.
