365 Things That Inspire Me

I also do posts for my clay group, beads-of-clay.org. Twice now, I have posted pictures that I took on walks with my dogs in a park near here, 3 Creeks. I post these as creative inspiration for my fellow artists and jewelry designers. These posts have been so well received that I decided to start a blog with daily inspiration in the form of pictures, quotes and poems. These pictures will be things from my immediate environment that I find inspirational or beautiful; textures, colors, contrasts, animals, unusual things, intriguing things. A daily dose of wonder....

"Finally brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, and of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, THINK on these things."

"Earth's crammed with heaven, and every common bush is afire with God, but only he who sees takes off his shoes."

October 19 2010 Eggs

Each day the world is born anew, each day a new beginning.


  1. How pretty! Do you know what kind of eggs they are? I love all of the downy feathers in the nest materials.

  2. Yes, they are goose eggs. The nest was across the street, in a grassy lawn, only about 10 feet from the road! There the diligent goose sat, until she saw me and the dogs, and left the nest, giving me a photo opp for the eggs. They were covered with the down, to keep them warm, so I used a stick to move some of the down away and then put it back after the picture. I watched the nest and found the broken pieces of egg shell when the goslings hatched. They all hatched.

  3. I just got the chance to check back... what a wonderful photo op! Glad the goslings all hatched OK.
