a couple of weeks ago i did a quick post
because i was so excited about the surprise one of my clients
had given me: 'my kind of surprise'
well...today, another tuesday...i saw this same client again this morning.
she had ANOTHER surprise waiting!
they're pretty fragile...she found them outside
and saved them in an envelope.
this big one is the Luna Moth
this smaller one is a Hackberry!
i save ALL the wings i find.
i use them in my 'creations'...and in the 'vial jewelry' i make.
(no no, not VILE! it might SOUND the same...but that's not what i said...
i said VIAL...little glass vials with cork stoppers!)
i put all kinds of things in vials...forest treasures!
bones, feathers, tiny acorns, stones...
and then make them into necklaces.
of course i haven't started to create anything with these new wings...
but over the weekend i did start to make a couple of window hangers
with older wings i already had.
wings, pressed flowers and grasses...
the finished piece will look similar to this one...
with heavy gauge wire wrapped & looped & ready to hang...
...and while i'm talking about clients...and gifts...
last week the mother of one of my clients...
who is also a good friend of mine by now, since i've been
working with her daughter for nearly 6 years!
anyway, she has a wonderful...veggie garden this year!
do you remember what happened to mine?
the deer ate the plants down to the ground!
she felt sorry for me i guess...
and she also has more beans than she knows what to do with.
have you ever seen beans like this?!!
FOOT LONG BEANS!! yum!
just wanted to get this out there...gotta run...
