The Art of Paper

March 2, 2015









Last week my sister and I visited a little gem of a museum… the Robert C. Williams Museum of Papermaking, located at the Georgia Institute of Technology.  Its collection is packed with fascinating history, beautiful books and papers, watermarks, tools, and machines.  Directly across the lobby is the Paper Education Center, which focuses on the mechanics of producing paper throughout history.  It was a delightful way to spend the morning.

Sister S (as usual) looks quite pleased with herself in this family photo, while I appear to be in deep thought (or pouting, which was more likely).

Little Tough Guys

February 25, 2015







We have an abundance of pine siskins this year, and I am fascinated by their behavior.  They are the first to visit this feeder in the mornings and the last to leave each afternoon, territorial and competitive to the very end.  There’s lots of posturing, lunging, spreading and flapping of wings as their battles cause them to spiral several feet into the air.  For such tiny birds, they can certainly hold their own.

Hitting Pay Dirt

I have always been a huge fan of carrots… they’re tasty, nutritious, colorful, and intriguingly shaped.  Imagine my surprise when I found these variations this past weekend — I had no idea that they came in such gorgeous colors.  I feel like I’ve hit the mother lode!

Back in Mom’s day, pearls were in, and it was fashionable to dress for dinner.

Come and Get It

I realize that even on the coldest days, Mother Nature is keeping a watchful eye on her feathered brood, but I always feel better leaving a little something extra for the birds… just in case.

Everyday Valentines

February 16, 2015









H’s philosophy is that every day is Valentine’s Day at our home, and I have to agree.  In light of that sentiment, I thought a little extra heart and love on this gray and cold Monday would be appropriate.  These images are from our Santa Fe trip this past October.
