Monkberry Moon Delight
I hope this blog finds you well, busy, happy, I can claim all of those, the weather is cool, the light is beautiful, the flickers are here. I love the fantastic colors of these birds, the points on the tail feathers the crack of their voice, I wish I had a pet flicker but they are not friendly like my dear Jay Chester who still visits practically daily outside my studio.
The leaves are changing, falling.
Banjo and I are embracing the mornings.
In our climate this is the season of renewal as our native plants awaken and we begin the greening.
I've been sailing along, building lockets, these were requests and they are both sold, still they require so much time and tinkering to get things just right, the fit, the hinges, the clasps.
I wanted to show them to you, toot my horn a bit, toot, toot.
I have a million other ideas along these lines as one thing leads to the next, the progression, the greening, if you will, it's growing season.
Both lockets included a little surprise inside. Work is steady and fun, funderful but the date is getting late and Christmas feels like it's closing in.
I need to let my online work luff a bit while I design and build for our December show so I'll be sitting here, making and most likely singing.
Why Monkberry Moon Delight? I've had that nonsensical, greasy song in my head all morning. Catchup catchup, cats and kittens......don't get left behind, don't get left behind... I'm going to try and get rid of it, I'm stocked and ready for smooth sailing.
Thanks for stopping in, much love, Ro
