My favorite thing in nature are the beautiful trees in our forests. Not only do they provide us with oxygen, but they are home to many creatures. Sitting under a huge tree is the perfect place to have a picnic or read a book, they provide shade in hot days. When it snows, the trees look equally as beautiful when covered in a layer of snow and ice.

I love this:

"Wonderful Tonight" necklace. What a gorgeous pendant!

I also tweeted about it!

Thank you so much for the contest!!

I love trees! I have always loved the gracefulness of branches; the quiet rustling leaves and the wonderful shade beneath them. In the shop I liked the Moon over the Mountain OOAK. That is a lovely too is graceful...calming and a lovely shade of pink!

I love the summer white necklace - it's shiny! Actually, it's very pretty, and would go well with a dark turtleneck in winter, or a tank top in summer.

In nature, I love the hills of Pennsylvania. I think the striations of colors and jagged edges are a tribute to the raw beauty of the earth. They calm me everytime I drive through.

My fav element in nature is is very inspirational. I love this necklace as it is very classy

Carapace said...

My favorite natural object is a river-rock! Really! Two elements in one, at a bare minimum, and they are so very comforting to hold. And it reveals the polish on stones no jeweler would touch!

My favorite thing in the shop? This necklace!
Summer Earth:
Because the solid stones and delicate wirework are such a lovely contrast!


Wehaf said...

I love succulents, like echeveria and pebble plants. They seem so rich and subtle and full of life. I would love a succulent garden, but I don't live in the right place, so I have to content myself with a few plants on my windowsill.

I love these earrings:

I love this necklace, very earthy.

My favorite part of nature is the Earth, the actual dirt. As a gardener I am always interested in how my soil is doing. I test it, add organic matter to it,smell it, feel it. It is alive here, life giving.
I also love the worms in it.
