but first i must announce who the heart and bone are going to live with!
kathy, my friend, are you reading this? yup! they're coming your way! kathy van kleeck (kvk jewelry) is the name i pulled from the cup, i mean hat. i think that this is all quite serendipitous because on friday i received a wonderful package of beach treasures from her...
she sent two marbles, a bone, multiple pieces of the opaque celadon glass that i love, and pieces of pottery -- not just any pottery pieces, but green ones -- my favorite!! thank you kathy! so glad my little offering will soon be on its way to you!
yeah, she made the little holder for the 'crystal ball' marble. is that cool or what? everything's sitting on the tin they came in... how could i not get carried away taking pics?
thank you everyone who left a comment! i am truly grateful for all of you...
now we're back on I-5, about halfway between ashland and mt. shasta, near the end of the first day. this is the last pic i took... the moon was gorgeous, and look at that mountain. another volcanic peak, but i don't know the name of it.
fast forward to the next morning at 10 a.m.. i'm at my friend anna's house, and roxanne from river garden studio is there, as well as a woman named margie. we're all there to talk about forming some kind of an art group.
i'm going to show you some of the art that these amazing women created...
was i excited after being with these kindred spirits? you guess!!!
we're meeting again in a month, and between now and then we're each going to be working on a book/journal.
this was taken on the final leg of the trip home. i was so tired at this point i could hardly muster the energy to get my camera. was it in my purse? my art bag? on the back floor? or maybe i left it somewhere. oh my, it seemed overwhelming to try and track it down. but that moon... how could i resist? so i scrounged around in my art bag, and sure enough, there it was. one last shot.
