John Anster Fitzgerald - (1819? – 1906) "Victorian Fairy Painter - he was able to suggest the existence of a coherent alternative world which was ethereal and bizarre." So here is my small interpretation of the weird little creature that is holding on to the beaded rope (or chain) that holds the Robin captive.

The lampwork beads are by two different Artisan Lampwork Artists: and

These beads are made of Triton Glass and that's what gives them that magical (fairly like) appearance.

Gorgeous Sunsets and Sunrises Here in the Desert

Check out the STOP Sign in the 1st picture...It must mean STOP and look at this beautiful Sunset.  This is down the street from my house and sun is setting over the lake (Lake Havasu, AZ)

This is a beautiful Sunrise out of the back of my house...WOW...It changes so quickly that is hard to get a picture as the sun is coming up.

Another gorgeous Sunset...While we get no snow here it does get chilly, but I'm so fortune to be able to enjoy God's creation of beautifully vivid colored skies.  Sometimes it just takes your breathe away...
