Treasured Possessions! Simply Neutrals Tuesday No. 38

Very often we just don't stop to think how our lives
would feel and could change if we lost everything 
we owned in a matter of just 2-3 hours!

This has been the case of so many families,
in fact 69 homes within 30 k of where I live, 
over the weekend when a horrendous bush fire
in searing heat and high winds
erased the possessions of these poor poor people!

As Summer is closing here on the far south coast of Australia
(akin to say perhaps Southern California in the U.S.)
there was one last day of very high temperatures
threatening to ravage so much native bushland
and many homes so close to the beach!
Thank goodness many of these people were able to flee
to the beach to escape and, in all of this,
not one one life was lost!

A fire also broke out 
 in native bush land no more than
1/2 kilometre away from where we also live 
thankfully the Rural Fire Service
managed to contain it as we were preparing our
escape plan!

With global warming I genuinely fear this scenario
will be one we will be witnessing more of
in the future!
We can never become too complacent with what nature
dishes out!

I can count myself one of the blessed and lucky ones
who can still hold and appreciate my treasures
such as the ones above which have come
into my life over the past couple of months
from some of my dear blogging friends -
thank you so much for being there!

So blessed are we to be amongst some of the more fortunate
ones - this time!

Thank you my dear friends,

The Impossible Dream - Simply Neutrals Tuesday No. 37

Honoring some of the most beautiful drawings
(and paintings) of Leonardi daVinci
I have combined these with some of my eco-dyed pages
to create this little book
of treasured art pieces!

 The beautiful images have been
collaged onto painted pages
using many layers
scrim, satin, netting and vintage laces!

with places for tags

and pockets for notes!

The cover spread shows how I added
the dyed paper onto lace and felt!
I'm sharing these at Simply Neutrals Tuesday
with Wen's blog - AppleApricot!

Wishing you all a creative week with a little time
resting in peace and quiet to renew your

Hugs, Suzy xox
