Letting the Cool Air In

The sweetness in the air today is oh so lovely.I am full of Gratitude,for these past days the weather has remained glorious and refreshing and its comforting arms have stretched far and wide embracing every corner of my home.

The doors remain wide and the soothing sights and sounds are truly remarkable.



 
And we took advantage of the wind and played alongside it..





..and as always, the wind inspires in so many ways..helping me to focus
on some
ideas swirling in my head..Some new yummies for the shop..filled with my
 favorite line from
 my favorite quote,"The Journey" by Mary Oliver

            
 
 Plus a new ring- a - ma-gig..using a glass marble,microbeads,paper
                and a ring base by the amazing Susan Lenart Kazmer..
 
     and another pendant using a great quote by Thomas Edison.


    
 Yes,I get it..I used the Q instead of a O in some places...at first I made the mistake and thought I should start over...but later decided NAHHHHHHH...Kinda Like it!!


As always,
thank you so much for stopping by

Had fun going through your blog. Just started reading Mary Oliver a friend gave her to me and thought we had some similarities.

Hi Cat, thank you so much for stopping by! Wish you could have been in the class, it was so much fun. I love these sweet cloth and metal pendants. Your work just continues to touch me so deeply. Not only the words you choose, but the texture, materials, and colors. You are such a talent. Big hug, Riki

sharon said...

You are amazing Cat! The ring is awesome...the pendants are my fav though! So much detail and layers...they make me feel so good! Thanks always for your encouraging words!

Linda said...

Love your work Cat - and the quotes are such great choices.
As for that blue flower.....its so amazingly BLUE!! Just gorgeous :-)

Debrina said...

Ahhh Cat - you are so cool!! I must be picking up on this concept of fabric and paper and metal in jewellery by osmosis because that's exactly what I'm experimenting with at home at the mo. In fact, I'm just about to post about it...if only blogs like yours wouldn't stop getting in the way of my concentration and pulling me off course with all there delectables! ha ha. Oh and I love your "doo-dads" etsy store. I've been thinking seriously of stocking mine with supplies too as there are a few things we get here in NZ that are really reasonably priced that you un the States can't get a hold of eaily...like round wooden pegs for example. And doileys on the cheap! We have tons of it for real cheap here. So thanks for the inspiration and I may now have to go and shop at your place!!

Riki Schumacher said...

Hi Cat! Thanks so much for stopping by and giving me some feedback on these bling things. They are really fun, don't know how many I'll do, but we'll see. I think you're right, takes the right woman and a good pair of jeans! Big hug, Riki
