Small things that make me happy

My zen potato makes me happy. You can see it in the background. I change out the potatoes when they get too rotted out. They are like bonsai trees, without the work. Since I was a little girl I have always set up still life studies, that are more like stories. There are two little figure's that I think of as Mr. Eleven and I. The pig, I found on the street in Berlin, and reminds me of travel and discovery. The feathers are from the yard. There is also a small birds egg I found in the yard for a dash of amazing blue color. Yesterday, I discovered the potato with the long tail hidden on the top shelf. Like a cute little mouse who came to visit, the little potato is now living on the display shelf. It makes me smile!
