Photos of Penryn in the Fog

"People will forget what you said; People will forget what you did. But people will never forget how you made them feel."

Before the big winds came, we had a couple of lovely, foggy days… very serene.




The tree in the first photo is completely nekkid now. Three days of really heavy winds have taken those leaves (along with a couple of chair cushions).

I have begun a new project… it’s slow going, but hopefully I’ll have something to show you soon. Things have to be formed then painted, then the paint has to dry. Then other parts are painted and added to the first part and the glue that holds those has to dry. Then the whole thing needs to be made waterproof. Then we’ll sink it in resin and wait for the resin to dry. Fingers crossed.

I should have opted for the miniature work back when my eyes had amazing close-up vision. Now, let’s just say my magnifying visor is becoming my best friend.

  1. I snagged my Dad's magnifying visor when I had the chance, going thru stuff in storage with my Mom. Now I wear my 4X's And Pop's Visor LOL so I don't work quite as long on a project without a 'break'

    Just read the book review on the poly clay, I think I had better have some simpler books to begin with...been thinking about how to stand light bulbs so circles can be placed on top .. maybe I will have to just drop bulbs thru the baking racks of the oven. Not there yet tho.

  2. Thanks for the comment on the book review, Elli. I have two more book reviews coming up and one of those is on poly clay.

    Okay, what are 4X's?
