YARD PHOTOS, NEW ART


coffee beans, drying on the tree...

wild fungus under a wood railing....

new youth....

glorious mid life....

...the fat lady sang....

..a stray bullet hole......


drawings to be resized and used in resin bezel earrings.....i also made them into art cards to mount jewelry on......
I made a pair of pink rose quartz calla lily earrings today.

..and here they are on an art card.....

I've added these earrings to my Esty shop, as well as a "Fighting Tooth and Nail" necklace, with 3 vintage antique square nails and 5 fake teeth. It is on a figure eight iron wire neck chain and is a much larger more complicated version of the single nail ones I like to give away to those who are in a health battle.......other than that, we have been very busy with the yard. Thursday was mow day, and we have also been trimming heliconias and gingers as well as finally picking up all of the hundreds of palm fronds that have fallen because of the heat. Gorgeous weather - but it makes for a lot of yardwork!
...and
WE BOUGHT A BOAT! I''ll post pics tomorrow......

Love the new earrings. And your photos make yard work look worth all the effort. The stray bullet hole is distressing. "The Fat Lady Sang" is a piece and title that has to be used often. As always, you make great presentation cards.

Connie! How wonderful! I've been loving your jewelry, and congrats on the newsletter feature! You deserve it! (Now you will be bombarded for your wonderful pieces, and won't have TIME for your new boat!)
