Autumn Hastens

Sky of blue
Leaves of gold
Autumn flew
On wind blown cold

Firelight shine
Hearthstone glowing
Rocky shrine
Cold waters flowing

It's been way too long since the last post - 

Brownie and I have been very busy, we'll try to do better - he said he'll remind me.

Happy fall!

Where Bloggers Create 2013

Welcome! Here's Brownie...

My mom sent me to take you to the studio...

Hurry - before it starts raining again...

Would you like to come in?

This is the end wall of my 8 x 10 garden shed studio, opposite the door.

A workbench runs along one side...

with two different levels.

The front corner of the workbench...

a glittery dragon peeks out of her lair.

On the back of the workbench - it pays to polish the brass once in a while - a genie popped out of this jar.

Some cheerful stuff on a little shelf.

A thrift shop mug rack makes a great place to hang scissors.

Under the workbench is bead storage.

The wall opposite the workbench has shelves - someday I'll finish the curtains to cover this.

I'm working on decorated bottles for an apothecary cabinet...

which should be ready around Halloween.

And as always - some jewelry projects.

Thank you for stopping by, and many thanks to Karen Valentine of My Desert Cottage for hosting this wonderful party! Click on the link above for the party post.

Fall off the planet?

Well, I certainly fell off the blogging planet. There were health issues in December - nosebleeds that led to the ER and hospital. There were health issues in January - more nosebleeds that led to the ENT doctor and an answer to the gushing nose problem - allergies. Who woulda thought? Then there was catch-up at work. 

Creatively I was lost in the woods - I've felt this way before and when it happens, it's time to sit quitely and wait. Wait for a little bird to land on a branch near you and say "See that glimmer - over there - in the distance? That's the way to the path!" Ok, I see the glimmer. 

 I'll climb back on the planet and get creating...

It's winter, and yes, it's supposed to be cold - but not this cold! Not in Arizona! We're just not prepared for it. The washing machine drain froze and flooded the hall, there have been new fountains sprouting in the neighborhood and some folks are without water. I wont know how my plants are doing until spring, I hope they make it. Are you longing for a little visual warmth and sunshine? I found just the thing -

 "Blossom" magazine from Amy Butler, what a visual delight! So much colour and uplifting articles to raise your spirits if the pictures aren't enough.

What a delight! It's online and free, click here
Stay warm!
