Natural Beauty

I was feeling pretty sick over the weekend. On Sunday I was feeling a little better and to test my stamina I decided to go for a little walk to my local thrift shop, five minutes from my apartment. (open Sundays, open evenings, good cheap entertainment). I did bring home a couple little goodies but my best find was this wasp's nest which I didn't notice laying on the ground on the way there, but did on the way home.

I think the colours are amazing, and remind me of Leslie's beautiful (wip) socks.

The call of the Socks posted Sep 15th is at the bottom of the page.

Can anyone tell me... When I link to someone's site, can I link directly to one of their postings? I know this probably isn't the place to ask. My daughter isn't around to help out and if I tried help on blogger it would take me about 10 hours to figure this one out. Honestly, it's not intuitive to me and using the computer is an extreme challenge. It's a real love hate relationship!

Thank You

Thank you to everyone for such kind, heartfelt comments regarding my last post. I've been busy lately, working on fixing up my apartment, going through everything and trying to simplify and spruce it up. I bought a bunch of Ikea frames and have been finally putting up some artwork, something that was lacking here. I seem to have a lot of nick nacks, (too many) but not enough pictures. Anyway, that's been fun going through old calendars and such. Miro, Grandma Moses, Chagal, Diego Rivera all in similar colour schemes. Maybe one day if I ever get my place to a point that I'm really proud of, I'll post photos. I'm doing this on a real shoestring budget mind you. Anyway, for now I'll show this great knitty bike I saw while window shopping a few days ago. I should have noted the store, or be able to give the artist credit but I can say it was on south Granville St. in Vancouver.
