Gorgeous Glass, Burlap and..Weeds?

MMmm...yummy! Capturing light on the curves of glass through a camera lens is about as good as swigging a frothy latte. Get ready to drink in some color, texture and the wonders of nature.


The bounty of nature is stunning. She is gorgeous to me even in the form that some call 'weeds.'



My back patio with the glass table and glass window creates a reflective runway for this fashion show. 


A closeup of the bottom of that simple jar.  Isn't that lovely?


Bright yellow fall leaves.  Pottery vase from a friend.  Sigh....


This jar gets a bit of twine for a simple, natural effect.


I don't know what those brown little rose-like seed pods are, but they are a fabulous for fall.


I loved dressing this little quart bottle up with a simple burlap circle for a bit of fall texture.


I'm thankful for nature's beauty and abundance.
