  4. Those are just beautiful, JoAnn! I'm new to your blog after a sweet visit & nice comments from you on my blog, & I'm now a new follower on GFC.

    I wish the Paulownia seed pods were available here in our neck of the woods, but maybe we have something similar. I'll be watching....lol!

  5. You have created a gorgeous blog . . . it is totally captivating. This tutorial is amazing. I will be back. Right now I'm having a little problem, when I follow a blog, I have lost my thumbprint, now I get a blue silhouette . . . maybe you know the answer. I would love to follow your blog, but hate following without a thumbprint. Trying to figure out how to fix it. Have a great day. I Love your site. Come on over my welcome matt is always out.
