Collecting Nature

Coffee table
I love to collect little bits of nature and display them around our home.
They are a constant source of inspiration for my artwork.
Glass box of treasures.
Last week I found the most perfect glass box to display some of my beloved treasues.
Margie rocks
My growing collection of Margie rocks
living together with a few that I've covered with her very easy to follow instructions
Seedpod Canoes
Seedpod canoes (as I call them) filled with little bits of wonder
that I gather on walks and some that have traveled from all over the world
as gifts from my most generous friends.
The gorgeous background of this photo is a painting on wood panel called "Black Cactus" that I bought from my very talented friend Tiel in Australia.

Esas seedpod canoes parecen ser los contenedores ideales para todos esos tesoritos! Yo los guardo en frascos pero no se aprecian tanto! Muy bonitos!!

I love seeing collections. They're always so inspiring! Im showing mine in a few days in conjunction with another blog (excuse the grotesque pimpage there, that's really not my style) and wondered if you're taking part too or if this is purely a coincidental pleasure? I apologise if not, these would be perfect for it. So stimulating!

I love your collections. My husband often teases me that we live in a naturalist's lab. I can't imagine going for a walk and not picking up a treasure or two. Enjoy your weekend.

I have an exact kind of glass box that will soon be housing a small, intact (empty/hollow) crab body found on the beach Florida.

Thank you so much for the link to the tutorial for the crochet covered stones, I have wanted for so long to learn how to make them!
Collecting bits of nature is one of our favorite things to do also, such beauty is all around when you just open your eyes to see it!

Hello Geninne, I found this ancient Chinese painting of birds on someone eles's blog and it instantly reminded me of your paintings. I want to share it with you hope you'll like it.
