I grew up in Seattle in the trees…
…observing birds and critters, making meals for fairies with maple seeds and berries. If I could have finagled it, I would have lived inside a tree. Our family house was big, but the eight of us filled it to capacity. I spent most of my time in this gazebo on the hillside. Every place I’ve lived since has had a cozy bird’s nest feel. Even now in Spokane.
Here’s where I communicate.
Here’s where I make jewelry stands for my Etsy shop.
I’m also working on a huge painting commission that’s taking up my entire drawing table (and can’t be shared till it’s done), so I created an area where I paint in small sections, easier to manage……with a view to what’s going on outside my PLACE IN THE WORLD.
Have a wonderful week in your place! xo ~ Pierr

For a week or so now this huge non-fruit bearing Pear tree has been in full bloom. I’ve never seen flowering trees this size. While trying to get a decent photo (this is 10x zoom) my lens caught an unlikely visitor going for a bird’s eye view…
…and though UNLIKELY…a little nap in the sunshine.

From the archives…all on Whidbey Island, WA – all of Nature’s bounty…
There is a stretch of beach along Admiralty Bay on Whidbey Island where odd shaped stones are found. But they’re not stones, really. More like baked clay from the cliffside. Actually they are called concretions – “a hard, compact mass of matter formed by the precipitation of mineral cement within the spaces between particles.” – Wikipedia. Beach walkers find them and display them on a driftwood log or a boulder – like this one. They are too miraculous to take from the site (though they are…and I have! created a little patio in front of an Adirondack chair in my backyard once…then returned them all to the beach several months later). This community collection grew over one summer. Many shaped like fried eggs! Click on ‘concretion’ in the tags below to see other photos of them on my site. PROLIFIC
