close ups ...

Been an absolutely insane day here ... major tree work being done on our property ... and I've spent most of the day on my neighbor's back porch watching the show.  Now that most of the really huge work is done and the tree guys are on lunch break, I'm doing a speedy post. 

Here are a few promised images of some of my ocean treasure inspirations ...

 recycling heaven ... tiny shards of safety glass, shells and concrete

So that's my current inspiration ... super tiny to fairly monumental!  Can't wait to see what comes next.  Just have to get through the rest of the day with the tree guys ... unnerving when huge trunks hit the ground and I'm pretty much exhausted from all the noise and my yard looking like a war zone.

looking forward to a return to quiet ... kvk
