It’s time to visit blogs from the far corners of the globe! If you would like to join the fun, click HERE.
To introduce myself I’ll start with a fairy tale because everybody needs a story.
And yes, I am an artist though I also have a day job, and yes, I do live under trees. I love to make vintage style jewelry and stitch needlework – I have a thing for pincushions. I also do shabby scrapping and collage.
The trees and the tiny house are in the Verde Valley of northern Arizona -
Let’s step out the gate and visit -
The Verde Valley
The historic mining town of Jerome on the slope of Cleopatra Hill
The open pit above Jerome where they had to take off the side of the mountain because of the mine fires that burned for years
The surrounding countryside
The ever-changing sky
Across the valley, up to Sedona and Coffee Pot rock
Land of the red rocks
Over Midgley bridge
Up the narrow, winding road through Oak Creek canyon
Down the path to…
Oak Creek, then up the canyon to…
Flagstaff and the San Francisco peaks.
