Soul Blooming…

It’s been a quiet week.

Cool weather for Florida but still sunny.


Last weekend, David and I found annuals at the Home Depot

full of colors that we associate with summer up north.


I filled a few pots with some of my favs !

Cosmos, marigolds and geraniums.


Their bright color makes my back lanai even more comfy.

Love that the indoor kitties can come and share the space too.

Safe from the huge hawks that are flying around but

able to watch, listen and talk to the other birdies without putting them in danger either !

Next plant I get will be a big one that I can put in front of that doggie door before the cats figure out how to use it !


My old dog, Chica, doesn’t want to learn a new trick and use the thing,

even with cookies or cheese as a reward !

She just doesn’t like how it swings back on her at all !


I’m going to be using my own wings this weekend, and head over to Melbourne, FL

to teach my Soul Beings Collage and Paint class at Art More Place.


It felt really good to get this class ready, putting my old teacher skills together to plan things out and make it a fun and creative experience for my participants there!

Can’t wait to play!


Plus I get to hang with my dear friend, Sherri, who owns the studio.

She is a hostess with the mostest and a big huge heart.

Love spending time with her !

Off I fly !

Have a great weekend, beautiful Ones !

Big Love to you !

Sharing my Florida Life Joy

I am here.

I have to say that winter in Florida has been the best gift ever !
I recommend sunshine and warmth to all people who suffer with depression and seasonal mood disorders.
I wish I could give it as  gift to all of my loved ones who hate winter.
I do have a guest room to share !
I still have my hard days, but being in a place where it is green, warm, sunny and that has no snow
has made a huge difference in how deep I go into a funky mood.
I am working on finding friends near by to play with.
I have a new tribe of incredible hearts in Melbourne, FL, which is about two hours away.
In fact, I will be teaching eucalyptus eco-dyeing and some other mixed media classes at my new friend, Sherri's art studio, Art More Place.
But here on my western coast, I haven't really met any friends yet.
It is on the to do list/must have because I do have days where I am very lonely and miss my peeps a lot.
I have been rooting myself in my new studio slowly too.


Little altars and inspiration from gifties from friends make it feel more like home,

The screened in back lanai is lovely in the afternoons and into the sunset hours on warmer days.
The animals can all join me out there, even my indoor kitties !

That is where I stitch quite often, listening to audio books or tunes and feeling so very blessed for the place I live in.
This Florida life is a good thing for this Rock Fairy girl.
I am so very grateful !
