Monday Metal Art

It's a gray and chilly morning here.  I believe I'll continue putting away the show stuff, before venturing outside to work at the shop this morning.  I had a great time at the show, meeting vendors, shoppers, and  fellow blogger, Stephanie.  Joseph's pig, some smaller pieces, and lots of soap went to new homes.  Some sweet orange lotion and herbal tincture from Henrietta at Edge of The World Farm came home with me. And a goddess from my friend, Eve.  The tincture is one to help lift spirits, helpful on these gray days.  The goddess will fit among what I think of as my altar, a space filled with found bits of the natural world~ shells, feathers, stones, antler..., and objects that have meaning to me, including an angel holding a bird, a smiling buddha and a little blue glass bird dish that belonged to my grandmother.  Wishing you a lovely week ahead!

I love those tinctures and fragrant soaps and lotions, have to agree about the small momentos which hold memories, such a uplifting post.

Laurie, Hi!! It was so excellent to meet you! All your work is amazing...and it was so cool to see your pieces in person, after first seeing pictures on your blog! I very much hope that we will get together someday and get to know each other seems we have a lot of shared interests! :) Peace, Stephanie
