Making Strides...


I have been singing the "I'm so far behind" tune since moving into Museville. It's been one big project after another - and when I got sick, I was panicked - all I could think about was, "how am I ever going to catch up now?!"

Well, I've finally embraced what I have been trying to convince myself of all this time - I really do get it. It's not a race. Throw perfection out - your best... well, that has to be good enough.
I'm good with that, and I'm actually getting more done with a calmer heart and clearer head.

I spent the weekend in the studio making these lovelies for the shop -


I just love sea fans -- there is such an ethereal, mysterious quality to them - a dark beauty imbued with such grace. One of those heartsong things again...

I also made a plethora of classics - some on bottles, some on silver - all equally lovely.



This barnacle cutie may have to stay with me - while washing it, and seeing the water staying in the little barnacle cups, an idea came to me. I went outside and clipped a few sprigs of lavender and popped them into one of the barnacle "vases".... this little baby may need to stay home with me - it's my latest addition to my desk.



Off I go into the week. Hopefully more things will get ticked off that overwhelming list of mine! First up -- washing all the antique demijohns that I picked up last week...

Take a peek over at Greyfreth if you have time to see all the new and beautiful sea life, including all the lovelies shown above.
