THEJETTY on the shores of Maine and I purchased them from her shop on etsy.
I normally am inspired by feathers, rocks and flowers, but that week I had been inspired by my recent etsy purchase. I am imagining the life of the bits and pieces i received in the mail, each piece wrapped up in tissue.... To sit and wonder about the 9 lives these items have had already... Someone, somewhere, years ago mixed the clay they were made from. Someone else molded the pots from the clay on a potters wheel, leaning in to push and pull it just so. Then the were used for years in a home, holding all sorts of mixes of breads or cookies, and the may even have traded hands once more before that waiting to be purchased at the market. How they ended up traveling miles away, broken and washed up on the shore, tumbled by the ocean, is a whole other daydream. Then they were found, collected by small hands, packaged up and shipped in the mail miles away again to me, where I painted on them, made a small nest for them with needlefelting, and listed them in my shop to hopefully move onto even another life....
I will have them in my shop tomorrow and more to come very soon if anyone is interested.
I also showed you a picture of this little guy a few days ago... he is Kodah... right when I was trying to simplify my life... he was at the Walmart parking lot being sold out of a truck. I just went to hold him without planning to buy a dog, as I really didn't need another dog or anything else to take care of right now, but he really, almost literally spoke to me and said "you need me... I need you" so I listened and brought him home. He is the best dog ever and I am not really even a dog lover... I always favored cats more, till now!
Jumping Puppy Love
He just can't control himself
Gotta bounce then sleep
I had planned to show a sketch I did of Kodah and yet I can't find the photo of it or the sketch... so much for organization... it'll have to wait for later... so anyway, have a good week everyone! it's good to be back!
