New and old changes

New ideas always coming to mind.

 A flat decorative tray, can be used for food, or other things.  Just thought I'd try out some new ideas.

Today I'm actually trying something else new - going to Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest.

So while Vicki Lane is teaching nearby in Brasstown, NC, and Linda Starr is in the mountains of Blairesville, GA...I'll be tramping through the forest of the Appalachians to see some big trees.  Can't wait!

For the 5 years I've lived here, this old garage full of junk has looked back at me whenever I look out my living room windows.  And last week it was finally removed.  Yay.

There is a big space there, and lots of cars.  But the jolly green porta potty is still there.  And the construction guys still use it and let the door slam every time.  I know their bathroom habits by now!

Thanks to
for including my blog several times in the review of April, 2015.

There are lots of blogs about pottery, and well worth perusal when you get the clay off your hands and look at the little screen in your life.

Quote for today:

Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.
Carl Gustav Jung


  1. Wonderfully decorated tray and an IMPOSSIBLY large tree.

  2. that is one huge tree, I must have a read about that forest

  3. Have a fun tromp through the forest!

  4. The Joyce Kilmer Forest has been on our list of things to see since we moved back. Can't wait to see your pictures.

  5. That sounds beautiful. I’ve seen a tree in the Pacific Northwest that is about 1000 years old, you’d love it.


Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
