Seashore inspiration continues...

These are a few of my favorite creations ...

Did I mention that I live in a historic vintage cottage steps from the ocean

and that I have a fascination for seashells ?

I am in awe of their structure and beauty.

I have been making my own molds to create shells out of clay

and enjoy glazing them in an array of varying colors,

that will never fade over time.

I believe each of us is affected by our environment.

I live in gratitude each day for the gift of living where my spirit soars.

Coral wreath design

Unexpected sweet little find at Big Lots,

coral colored beaded wreath and small seashell pics,

are assembled and attached together

with some of my own ceramic lustered creations included

for added pleasure and sparkle.

Experimenting with clay...

and stamps, and wax, and glazing techniques

then including some of my favorite collectibles...
lace, ribbon, and vintage buttons,

for new, one of a kind ceramic designs.

Cashmere sweater weather

It was pretty, pink and a favorite that I inadvertently shrunk.

Fortunately the new size of the sweater was a perfect fit for my adorable

7 year old neighbor who was thrilled with the cozy pink acquisition.

When she out grew it she returned it for me to create a warm wrap

for her tiny tea cup chihuahua,

cutting off one sleeve and adding a little soft pink netting

for a girlie collar ...too cute!

There was still plenty left, that came in handy,

for creating sea shell ceramic pin cushions,

and later a hand painted and beaded flower pin.

Re purposing is good!
