always trying to follow the old art rule of combining the simplest things in the simplest ways for the biggest impact and doing this with what you already have but in a new way……the tomato cage is a favorite.
in the summer it made a fine bottle ‘tree’ ready and able to trap any roving negative energy out at my little dragon house in the woods. there was one on each side of the door.
in Oct. it was again inverted with a rusted wastebasket pushed on top and a tin jack o’lantern on that.
wanting a bit more on the big night the waste basket was replaced with an inverted bucket pushed down within its legs and a lighted jack head was placed there. scrim was wrapped around it and arms were created by pushing the fabric on the top bit of the ‘legs’. joy!
now approaching Dec the cage, still inverted, has its legs tied at the top and is wound with tiny lights.with the days so short the tree comes on early in the afternoon. walking about in my favorite hour of last light we always have a good chat as we are long time friends at this point.
challenge met -nothing new was purchased and I had never used these items in this way before. the time spent to create was very little – minutes, I think. and I still had so much fun doing it and loved each one.

The pine needles float down so slowly that they feel very companionable as I circle the house with the dog. There are so many beautiful colors textures and patterns now to add to the inspiration list in my mind. The veil between the worlds seems thin and I often feel I can see the molecules spreading to give me a little peek into the mystery. I am looking at things and thinking things and playing this song over and over and over.
“Magnet and Steel”
