Hi Jean,
This pretty little spider is a harmless Arrowshaped Micrathena,
Micrathena sagittata.  According to BugGuide, it spins its small webs in open woods.

thank you ever so much for identifying this spider, it really is very pretty.

    I have what I think is an Orb Weaver but, not sure which kind it is, how do I email a photograph so you can help me identify my spider or a link I may use.
