Sweet Peas And Spider Webs ...

Yesterday ...when the earthquake hit ...this is what I was working on ....

Some new signs for our upcoming show ...

I was just putting the finishing touches on my new Sweet Peas Sign ...when we started rocking and rolling ...LOL !!!
I love using the subtle muted tones of aqua ..light Blue and Pink ..then giving them a nice aged look ..and adding some one of a kind elements ..this sign has sweet little sparrows flying ...with an antique wheelbarrow and some watering cans ....Along with some gorgeous metal flowers with wire vine and metal leaves ...Of course I love to add old chain to the top ..keeping all the elements old ...rustic..chippy and vintage ...really give it that authentic appeal ..that's it's been in a garden for years and years...
This sign will be headed to our show in July at the Urban Barn sells for $62- It's good size ....over 3 ft. in length... and it's a nice wide piece of reclaimed lumber with original worn paint ...

Today ....I thought I would share some amazing pictures of Spider Webs that Abbey took a few weeks back while we were waiting to get into an Estate Sale.

We are both always intrigued and amazed at the beauty of Spider Webs ...

Isn't this Gorgeous with the early morning sun sparkling through it ! ( you can click on the pictures to enlarge them)

This one was tucked into the Ice Plant ....

This Beauty is hard to see without clickin on the picture it's just in the top Left middle ..and it's Brilliant the way it's perfectly attatched to all the leaves ...

Spiders are an amazing little creature ...this year we have had a huge influx of spiders in our yard ..more than in recent years ..I guess it's the nice weather they are enjoying .. Along with the influx of spiders in general ..we have had a large amount of Black Widows ..we were a bit concerned and thought we should read up on them and educate ourselves in case of a bite ...

In learning about the widows we found out that the spiders that weave the Beautiful webs are the good spiders ....they are the ones that catch the mosquitos ..and all the little bugs that are bothersome....The Spiders that make the webs that are all craggy and and a mess those are the ones that are the not so nice spiders ...

I'm always amazed at all the little Creatures God thought to put on this earth ..a simple Spider ..that weaves a web a 100 times it's own size and makes a Pattern that is just breathtaking in such a short time simply amazing to me.....

The Beauty of the Earth !

Enjoy your Day ...Blessings ..Sara
