Nature's Treasures

“We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures." Thornton Wilder

Happy Sky Watch Friday everyone, I really appreciate the message of Sky Watching is that we all have opportunities to spot beautiful. skies, you just never know when a great view is going to pop up on the horizon.  It is almost cane cutting season here, warm breezes scented like molasses, in between tropical showers. Click the link to see what other bloggers from all over have found in their view of the sky to share this week.
It is a busy time of year and my crafting schedule is full of new adventures. This is a sneak peek into a special Christmas present using some new products from Melissa Frances, Clearsnap and Westcott.  Am really excited we can now order Melissa Frances papers on line.

You captured a perfect moment here, rainbows are so rare...or at least they are in Montreal. I only ever seem to see one or two in a year since snow isn't very conducive to them :o)
