Where has the Summer gone?

Can you believe in about a week it will be August! Where has the summer gone? I'm enjoying it puttering around in my gardens. And I can't complain to much about the weather. It's 70º right now and that is very unusual for us here in the Midwest.

I had a request for a Flamingo Coin Purse for my sister's friend. I do believe it turned out pretty cute! What do you think? Should I sell these in my etsy shop? 

Today I will be starting on a few new Primitive Halloween Goodies!! I'll post here with my new creations!!

I Really Should Be......

Really should be working on Halloween and Christmas goodies for the up coming fall/winter season. So hard for me to do when it's 90º outside. I get so caught up with photographing everything outside, like flowers and wildlife that I normally don't get to do in the winter. And I love just playing in my gardens, pulling weeds transplanting plants, watering. You know all that stuff that goes along with caring for a garden. I hate being indoors in the summer, even if it's hot out!! 

And I love, each Summer watching the baby deer grow up right before my eyes. I see Mommy and baby practically everyday now. She drops baby off at my next door neighbors backyard in the ferns and leaves for the morning. She usually comes back in the afternoon to pick her up. Baby is now old enough to venture out in the backyard on her own while mom is away. I captured an awesome shot of her today while mom was away. 

I think I may print out this photo for myself and frame it!!!

I've been playing around with my camera a lot the last month, capturing very cool images and turning them into IPhone cases. I've just started listing them in my Red Oak Images Etsy Shop. Click HERE to check out my new designs!!

Here's a few of what I have to offer!

This one is a vintage camera that I own. 

I have this one, the Blue Ball Jar case for my iphone and just love it!!!!

This is an old Elm Tree stump that is on our property. Very cool I think!

Like some rust? This was taken inside of a huge tractor rim that my neighbor has.

And my fawn that I get to see everyday!!!

These cases are available in IPhone 4, IPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy 4

Cool Summer!

I'm just loving the weather we've been getting lately. Hard to believe that it's July and only highs in the 70's! Perfect I say!! And mother nature is giving us rain when it just starts to dry out. That helps me with my daily watering of all my flower gardens! Gives me more time to sew and take photos!

Captured this shot of a rainbow on Saturday. It was a crazy weather day. It would pour down rain for a little bit and then the sun would come out. Did that all day. I think there had to be at least 4 or 5 rainbows that day. 

Several months ago I had a couple of people interested in this pillow that I made with one of my photos. You can now purchase it by clicking Here  You can get the pillow in 16", 18" and 20" with or with out a pillow insert. Very reasonable prices!

Also I've been working on some really cool vintage iphone cases that you can get at the same website.

Vintage Ball Blue Glass Canning Jar Case is Here

Vintage Brownie Camera is Here

I also have a couple new bird scrappy birds in my etsy shop!

These sweet birds can be found in my etsy shop Here

That's all for this day before the 4th of July! Have a safe holiday my blogging friends!
