A Winner & Wildflowers!!

 Happy Easter!  We have a winner of those beautiful earrings from my last giveaway!  Watch till the end to see who it is!  Thanks to all of you that left comments here and on my facebook page.  Ya'll are awesome!
Spring is finally showing up around here, so I'm headed out to find some more wildflowers. Here are some I found yesterday...tiny and beautiful! I love them!
This is an "Oconee Bell Flower" and is very rare ~ "This is a rare flower of the southern Appalachians found only in a few locations in the mountains of NC, SC and GA., in moist woods along streams." 
This is called a "Trout Lily" ~ they are more common and just gorgeous!  
And, of course, I had to share my little tadpoles!  They are growing up fast!

I hope you all have a beautiful Easter!  Happy Spring [finally!]

love and peace always ~ Kathy

But that's a waste of time and tears
And I know just what I'd change
If went back in time somehow
But there's nothing I can do about it now." ~ Willie Nelson

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Do you believe in luck?  I do!  I also believe in miracles, like the miracle of these tiny little frog eggs, developing into tadpoles in a pond of mucky water:
Made my heart sing!  Hope your day is epic!  I'm leaving you with a little Irish humor:

Peace & Love, Baby!

  Hey Ya'll!!  Long time, no post!  I've just been busy with taxes, a couple of photo shoots and a few hikes.  The weather has been really nice, but today we woke up to two inches of snow!  It melted quick, but now flurries are flying again...Ozzy and Lita are enjoying it so
Huge flakes are starting to fall...heading out with my camera again.  This was what our road looked like from the freezing rain earlier this week.  Gorgeous!
Hope all is well!  I'll be making some new things today, so stay tuned for that and I'll also be having a give away and a discount coupon code next week!  Just in time for the ides of March!

love & peace always ~ Kathy
