One World One Heart


One World One Heart is a worldwide event for bloggers.

It gives all those who blog a chance to meet and mingle and form connections with those they may not have otherwise met from all over the world.

In the past 4 years this event has grown to over 1,000 participants with lasting friendships formed along the way. 

Thanks to Lisa of "A Whimsical Bohemian" for this wonderful event that I'm proud to be part of.


I am new to blogging, so needless to say, this is my first OWOH event! My first blog was in November of 2010. My sister turned me on to blogging: she told me about all the wonderful, whimsical people in these places and I wanted to play too.


I am inspired by nature; mostly the seasons. I have a Maple tree out in front of my house who has been my muse. She has guided me in naming my blog and my Etsy store. She is the same Maple tree you see in the banner and you can also see her highlighted in other posts throughout this blog.


I have been married for about 29 years and Tom and I are now kickin' around with a collie named Masala, three cats and a parrot we named Emmett. This kickin' around is what I like to blog about. However, lately, I'm a little limited from physical activity, so I have found that my creative side has also emerged in my blog. I like to blog about Florida, the unique natural world here.


I recently bought a camera, a Canon Rebel. I have been having an adventure taking photographs; so where I once spent hours walking, I now an content to spend hours waiting for and taking the picture.


When out walking, I keep my eye out for gifts. I find them everytime. I walk gently, but do pick up the occasional feather, sea bean, rock, stone, or piece of dirft wood. I find this shift of  "what's important" consciousness has greatly helped lowered the credit card bill and increased my inspiration for my artwork. I love a home that is a little cluttered with much loved pieces, I support local, handmade products.


I am a vegetarian and have been for 28 years, and lately been supporting a whole, live foods diet. I garden naturally for my area. I love herbs, birds, animals, the beach, sea glass, sea beans, feathers, wind chimes, bowls,  flowers and edible plantings. I am the sort that has a little too much on a shelf and does not worry about the dusting.


For the drawing, I am going to give my first of a series of Nature Catchers. I am approaching the crone's years. My art pieces are beginning to reflect this. I just made this little Nature Catcher. I haven't named her. She is holding a bird's nest and has naturally gathered feather's in her dress apron and in her hair. Whoever the winner is will also be the one to name her. This name will be the one that I will use for this Nature Keeper in the Series. The winner will give me a gift, also!




Leave me a comment on this post that you would like to win this Nature Keeper. Leave me information on how to get back to you if you win, and so I can visit your blog. Also, leave me the name you think best for this little Nature Keeper. You must be an active blogger to participate in the OWOH event.


All individuals entering my "door prize" give-away of the Nature Keeper will have their name put into a bowl. The name will be drawn out on February 17th at 6 p.m. EST. The winner will be announced on my blog on February 17th. I will email the winner at the email address given, as well. The name you have chosen for this Nature Keeper will be announced that day also. I will mail the Nature Keeper USPS to the address given on February 18th.


If you have any questions, please email me at underthemaples@bellsouth.net


Peace.
Brianne

  63. I would love to win your nature keeper. I am from Ireland, and the name Morrigan came to mind.In Irish myth, she is the Keeper of Nature and comes in the form of an old woman or crow. How about that? My first name is Anne, but in Irish it is Aine, who is also a goddess.
    Visit me at Irish Muses at #678. I hope I win her. I would love her, as I volunteer at a nursing home and I would love to put her there to watch over my dear friends.

    Your Nature Catcher is beautiful, I love her serene face - maybe Serena for a name? Or Heather - I looked up the meaning 'A flowering evergreen plant that thrives on peaty barren lands as in Scotland. Heather.'

  103. For starters maple trees rock. Second, living under one rocks! Third, to name your blog what you do rocks. And fourth, look at that face on the little being you are offering to us. You rock. Thanks! Oh I would love to win this one! Will you please enter my name in for a chance to win, thanks, Norma (95)

  104. Hi from another Florida gal! Your art doll creation is so pretty. I think I'd name her "Nova" The meaning of the name Nova is: Chases butterfly (Hopi).
    so nice to meet you through this event. I hope that you'll stop by my blog to say "hi" too. such fun seeing all of the wonderful creativity across blog land and meeting folks from around the world.

  105. I would name her Moonbeam. For on a moon lite night her ray's kiss every so gently upon the nature she touches and all looks radient in her glow. She is beautiful!!!! It was so nice to stay awhile and enjoy a coffee with you. If you get the chance I would love you to visit me downunder (Australia) so I can return the favour. #819 mustlovepaint.blogspot.com

  107. What a beautiful doll! I am transitioning into using more natural materials in my dolls as well. Spring can't get here fast enough! I need to collect more things!

    As for her name, I like the name Calandra. It is Greek, and means singing bird, or lark.

    I hope you are having a great journey through OWOH!

    Please stop by my giveaway as well!
