Blue Birds

Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul, And sings the tune without the words, and never stops at all.

I love making birdie bowls and bird ornaments!

I wish I could make some right now, but I can’t! I’ll have to wait until we move. My fingers are itching to dig into a bag of clay and make something cute, or pretty, functional or non-functional…I don’t care, I just want to feel the clay in my hands. I want to touch it, squish it through my fingers, smell it…I like the smell of clay. Everyday I go into my workshop, and force myself not to make something. I look at all the pieces that are ready to be glazed, and then I have to leave. I know I have to start packing, but I’m procrastinating. I’m not sure if I’m ready to say goodbye to my workshop.

But then, another part of me can’t wait to move. I’m looking forward to starting over…in a new place, a new state, a new town, a new house, a new workshop. Everything new and clean and wonderful!

And then I remember I have to leave three of my children behind, and my three little granddaughters. That’s not going to be easy, but I have to. If only we could all go. Maybe someday we’ll all be together again…I hope!

They are really cute, don’t you think?

Blue Rain

I must admit, I’m not fond of rain anymore…not since I moved to Florida. It rains way too much here! I use to love playing in it when I was a kid. I still love the smell of wet earth and wet sidewalks though. When it just starts to rain, and the sidewalks and the ground gets wet…I love that smell. My glazes smell like that…wet earth.

This photo is so beautiful, it makes me want to jump inside it and play in the rain!

Haunted Hollow   

I love this one! It’s so hauntingly eerie and spooky looking.

Moonlight

I love how this typography print came out! I love the color combinations of black, gray, several shades of blue and white…with glittery little stars here and there. I love how the darkness is around the outside edges and the light is shining in the middle.

I think I’ll list one without the typography also.

Star Dust

I absolutely love this one! The different shades of blue, go from dark and vibrant to soft and subtle…with twinkling little stars shining all over the place. Love it!
