I had a request to share with you the results of yesterday’s “Gallery Shelves” project. That’s an easy request and I’m happy to share.
No, Michael’s isn’t paying me for an endorsement, but the shelves (the correct term is ledge, I think) were just what they were described to be.
“Decorative ledge holds your favorite frames and enhances any décor. Includes patent pending “wall grabber” hanging hardware.
Available in 12-inch, 24-inch and 42-inch sizes in walnut, white and black.”
The measuring and leveling process went remarkably smoothly. A couple of holes to drill, a couple of screws to set in, and voila! … Instant display. They ledges are lightweight, but durable.
And, the beauty of these ledges is that images can be changed very quickly and easily. I have already envisioned a wildflower series, an abstract series, a fall leaf series, a winter snow and ice series……the list goes on. Plus, should I wish to expand the size, I’ll just add another ledge or so.
And before I hear comments, I have the photos of the grandchildren in my office! Not to worry; they certainly get their due billing!
And, changing subjects very briefly, I discovered a new resource for free textures this morning. Our little blog community is always so good about sharing resources, I want to make sure that I share as well. The title of the resource is a little deceptive, but make sure you check it out!
I leave you today with an image from the archives since I have so many new visitors to my work. Taken earlier this spring while exploring Fern Cliff State Park in southern Illinois, this was the first I became aware of the art of rock stacking.

Southern Illinois, and I say this in the most kind and loving manner, has a lot of artsy, earthy folks; many of whom are SIU students. I was immediately captivated with the artistic stack of rocks left by some unknown artist. And, I was very saddened to discover it missing on our next visit to this spot.
Since spotting this on our hike, I have since become aware of some the history and popularity of this art form. A recent issue of O Magazine had an advertisement that utilized balanced rocks in its image. Do a google search on “rock stacking” or on “inukshuk” when you have some spare time. I think you’ll see some work that will amaze you.
Have a great day!
