Mini Daffodil Color Palette

I loved the way this mini daffodil looked up at me at the right moment. The wind was blowing and the little blooms were dancing from side to side but at this moment, our eyes met and the moment stood still. Click click, I got the photo, captured forever, just lovely! This tiny bloom is only about 1.5" wide but full of so many wonderful colors that I couldn't help but create a little color palette from it. Notice the wide range of warm colors, just a feast for the eyes. Who knew something so small could contain all those luscious hues just waiting to be discovered?

Mood Board - Birding

The inspiration for this mood board was the great fabric in the background. It contains dictionary words and images of birds in color and in etched black. I couldn't help but add my favorite nest and feather wreath to it. The field guide and bird cards went along perfectly. The added ephemera of the paint chip swatch and the little nest matchbox were too cute to pass up. I hope you look around and create a mood board of your favorite hobby. Now, where are those binoculars, I think I just saw an Eastern Bluebird in the garden...
