The ordinary arts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest ~ Sir Thomas Moore ~

Thankful {things I love} Thursday ...

No walk would be complete if I didn't return home
with my gathering bag
or pockets
holding a few found treasures.
acorns* stones* feathers* twigs* pinecones * flowers for pressing*
and walks with my grandson = double the treasures! He finds the most delightful nature gifts.
I've written before how he would always find heart shaped stones and give them to me ♥
A lovely collection was created in no time.
this one was particularly lovely...
not only is it one of the largest in my collection, but
it can be turned and creates a heart on 2 sides ~ me & him.
It sits on my meditation altar, with a gorgeous large white swan feather ~ a gift from my friend and fellow bird lover, Kim, bees wax candles, shells, sage for smudging, incense & inspirational words/thoughts.
And then there was an Owl Sighting.
 I tucked him into an almost finished painting which turned into Owl Spirit ~ "Messenger of change"

Have a wonderful Thursday ♥

Oh Deb, as always, I get so excited when I see a new post from you!... love your gatherings and your hearts from your grandson are priceless!... I am going to start looking for heart shaped rocks on the trail... your little meditation altar sounds so soothing and peaceful... I am needing to create a small one for myself, which will of course include many of the gifts from you there... how exciting you have an owl!... and your painting is gorgeous!... I love that it turned into Owl Spirit... and that squirrel!... what a little cutie pie!... I am happy now!... you always make my day... xoxo Julie Marie and Tessy "woof" to Archer!...

your lovely visits and comments make my day Julie marie ♥ thank you so much.
mr. squirrel was resting and plotting I think as after I took the photo he was dive bombing our kitchen window trying to knock off the bird feeder :-) must head to the store to get some more peanuts to keep him out of mischief.
