Lately I am enjoying more photography and appreciation of small delights around Hawk Hill. In this spring “Favorite Things” posts I got herb bouquets, art, and kittens.
I’ve been trying to be more intentional about appreciating less glamorous things as beautiful- enter these sage blossoms and fennel fronds. Hardly standouts in the garden, they made such an eye catching addition to my studio.
My favorite painting, it’s an original painting that I paid $2 for at a flea market. It’s these kinds of finds that keep me hunting even when I go for awhile without any good flea market finds.
I got a kitten earlier this year. Here she is meeting the pony face to face!
Daffodils and art make up a perfect Sunday afternoon for me. Here I’m painting notecards with black, blue, and purple watercolor, with some splattering just for effect. After these were completely dry I made some cards for friends by adding text with a white gel pen. In the background you see a painted pallet of watercolors- but actually every circle of that sheet is a sticker!
I like keeping several breeds of hens in my chicken coop. Not only does this mean I get a beautiful assortment of colored eggs when I college eggs, but learning to recognize each individual hen’s egg means being able to know, when egg counts are low, which chicken is not laying well.
