Moonglobes

An entire year of prototyping these babies has finally paid off.  One complete Moonglobe is finished and shipped down to my pal in NYC for a housewarming present.

The annual trek up to the Common Ground Fair in sweet little Unity, Maine always sends me home with some really beautiful wool.  I thought I’d try to do something different with it.

Wool is so wonderful!  You can do so many things with it, and as it turns out, making a globe and putting a light inside of it is a beautiful thing…  The depth in the material is so evident when it is backlit, and this white globe reminded me so much of the moon, ergo…

I can’t wait to experiment more.  Some of the colors available at the fair just blow me away – they are so vibrant.

Expect more of these in the future.

rings

Since folks have been asking me for rings lately, I went into major production mode last week and made as many as my little hands could handle.  Many are in the possession of one Sasha Ritter in Brooklyn, NY, so get in touch if you’re down that way – I’ll put you in touch with her.  I also have a fairly good store of them myself, so please let me know if you would like any before Christmas.

Ex-X-mas Cactus

The name Christmas Cactus holds no significant meaning to this plant anymore.  It was, at one time, able to live under the banner of that title, but in the past 4 years, has morphed into a Thanksgiving Cactus and now can only be referred to as a Halloween Cactus!  Happy Halloween everyone!  This doesn’t quite fit the color scheme, but it’s still pretty sweet.

Little corner space

Finally!  I have a new tiny little space in the corner of our bedroom set up just for me.  Now Eliot can have his special fly-tying area and I won’t be jealous anymore.  Sweet view out my window – the hawk has been cruising around like mad lately!  Three deer were feasting on the remnants of the garden this evening, but I haven’t seen the mink in a while.

Speaking of hawks, I found some nice old stuff of mine that I haven’t looked at in a while:
