We Found The Ocean

On the Cliffs at Pacific

First time ever being in California and seeing the Pacific Ocean. The grandson and daughter walked down to the beach and then climbed up on the cliffs. We had a great trip. This photo has been textured with Kim’s kk_waterfront 28 to share with Texture Tuesday. The rest are just SOC scenery photos. Loved getting to visit the West Coast. 🙂


Reading the comments people leave so I know I’ve had visitors make my day and are always appreciated even if you just say hello. Thanks… ❤

What’s More Fun

The weather in Ohio has turned CHILLY…. I miss the lazy Summer days already. Anyway, the grandbabykins had no school for two days due to teachers needing to meet for a coffee or something and get a break from kids…(of course I jest ;)).

At the Gym in Kid’s Club, the grandbabykins saw a kid working on something using two pens. Grandbabykins knows no strangers and being curious had to ask what in the world he was doing. He found out the kid was making a bracelet by looming rubber bands together. It is called Rainbow Loom. Naturally, he wanted to do that (side note: grandbabykins has always been curious when I crochet and had learned to make a chain so far so naturally, this looked fun to him). The daughter bought him a kit, and he’s been busy making bracelets, keychains, and different patterns.

One he's made so far
One he’s made so far

That kept him pretty busy most of the time, but still he wanted to go to the park…sooo What’s More Fun On A Chilly Day than playing at the park and enjoying the beautiful Fall colors even if it is Chilly.

It may have been chilly, but the Fall colors at the park were great.

God’s Splendor

God's SplendorWho could paint a picture thus as this

When nature and man combine

the field of corn, the splendor of green trees

against a skyline enhanced only by an ocean blue sky

with just enough wisps of clouds to add to the beauty of God’s splendor

Glimpse~Things to Come

Blizzard copy-001

Softly blows the breeze

That whispers through the trees

As snowflakes fall; each unique shape circles around

And eventually makes it to the ground

As one by one they pile atop another

As the whisper turns to a growl

The snowflakes dance and swirl

Painting the trees and landscape a luscious white

As fast and furious as a painter’s brush

using the World as his Canvas ~

and he names it

Sunshine Rays

Sunshine Rays from coffee w TT texture


Used the new Mellow Yellow Action from The Coffee Shop Blog to create the rays of sunshine effect, and then applied Kim Klassen’s kk-2203.

Original below:


Took the grandbabykins to play at a local park, and the condition was that after he played, we could take a walk. When we did walk, we found this little stream so he was thrilled with it. Of course he wanted to throw rocks in so I let him do a few, but then told him there were enough rocks in it already. Finally, he agreed and we finished our walk. I thought I’d see more flowers or nature to photograph, but this was pretty much it that day.



Quotography ~ SUNSHINE

Sunshine by Peabea Texture Tuesday


Some that have visited said they couldn’t read my poem so I’ve added the words below.

The Warmth

The Nature of your Love

Warms me as no other

Rays of Sunshine

Your hug

Your arms embrace

Encompasses my Happiness

And assures me I am Safe

 I dream of your Face

As I soak up the Sun

And await once more The Warmth of your Hug

By Peabea

This photo that I took at the end of last Summer was the one I decided to use for my first time submitting to Quotography because the field of flowers seemed a perfect place to be soaking up the Sunshine among all the colorful flowers.  Since I didn’t find a quote that I liked to go with my picture, I added my own Poem, and hopefully each part can be taken as a quote on its own.

I used Kim Klassen’s KK_May texture for sharing with Texture Tuesday.

I love sharing my crafts in The Patch, but would also love to have some Guest Crafters share theirs. If anyone has a craft they would share, I’d love to feature you on my site and share with others including my Facebook Friends. Please let me know in the comment form below. ~Thanks-a-bunch~

The Little Things

enjoy the little things copy   Today as I was outside just to enjoy the warm day, I saw this farmer disking the field across the road from me. Loved his red tractor so decided to capture the picture. It is edited with Adobe Photoshop Elements using Kim Klassen’s kk_isobel with soft light and her ‘Little Things’ brushes words for sharing on Texture Tuesday. I also applied some bird brushes that I have in my program. When I was deciding which picture to use for this Tuesday’s Texture Tuesday, I thought this one would be a nice change since I mostly post pictures of flowers. Anyway, when I found Kim’s Little Things Brushes, I thought these words fit perfectly for my picture.

Hope you enjoy!!

Spring at our House ‘n Miss Robin



Loving that Spring has arrived and the warmer mornings. Nothing like early morning sunrise and a fresh brewed cup of coffee or brewed tea.



Miss Robin has decided to favor us with a nest of eggs on our hose hanger…bad part is now that Spring has arrived and I like to clean off the patio and other uses for the hose…it is otherwise occupied for a bit. Not to fear though, we have another hose out front to use or to attach on the back, but really not wanting to disturb Miss Robin. This picture has two eggs (a beautiful blue in color), but she is now sitting on 4 eggs and won’t stay off the nest long enough for me to get another picture. I also used this picture for my April 30th Texture Tuesday (found at my other website http://peabea.net)


These were taken (raw out of the camera) on a walk last Summer.

A dried leaf hanging from the tree that I thought looked interesting.
A little bird that stopped by the water's edge to see what we were up to and then he flew away.
Just thought the light coming through the trees and the shade made the water in this area look dark and gloomy.
