We got walloped down here in southwestern CT - but ya' it could be so much worse. I love extreme weather. I love power outages. My boys think I'm nuts. I love the whole "survivor" thing about it. But of course it's sad when things turn really bad for some people. We'll be out of power and cable (gasp - no internet) for a while, but that's no big deal. Prayers out for those that are dealing with much worse.
So here's one picture of a leaning tree. I didn't have my camera around for some of the amazing shots of nature at its best (or worse) that I could have gotten. So this one is no big deal. In our smallish town, there are 140 roads closed due to fallen trees and wires.
And yes, when life gives you a nor'easter . . . make something with the branches:
The little flowers are punched from a Marvy punch from an old dictionary. The butterflies are punched from Martha's classic butterfly punch and are suspended from 26 gauge wire. I punched them from Jenni Bowlin's mini papers - the small scale of the patterns are perfect for this. So delicate.
thanks for stopping by! I'll catch you all as i can - maybe from the bookstore tonight!
(Pam - your seam binding is coming!)
