A Little Sprinkling


Today, with so many men and women working outside the home,

it is rare to find time to indulge your passions...like art!

A favorite quote on a Mary Engelbreit drawing gives me encouragement:

"You're never too old to be what you might have been."

Make time to enjoy what you truly love. I'm just beginning the journey.

Getting Over the Loss

Today was a wonderful day. Someone bought one of my favorite necklaces, and that, in itself, is a wonderful event. There are mixed emotions, however, when you love something you are about to sell. Something you've become attached to. Something you would like to keep for yourself. It's a mixed blessing, but it leans towards the positive side by at least three-quarters! I'm beginning to get the exposure I need for my shop. And I'm beginning to cope with the loss. In fact, I think I might be over it already! It's a wonderful day!!!

Meanwhile, I've joined a group called Sea Glass Lovers and discovered quite a bit about Lake Erie beach glass. Very interesting. It's just enough to stimulate my interest in scouring the beaches for old glass. I've always wanted to collect it but didn't know you could find it around this area. How exciting! In fact, my daughter is getting enthused about it, as well. She's the one who found the old glass bottle from Detroit, Michigan. We searched for pieces to complete the bottle. We found about four but no more. The bottle refers to Detroit, Michigan, and lists 7 fl. oz. I wonder about its origin. It would be interesting to learn of its history and daydream about how it got into the water and by whom it was tossed in.

Well, enough thinking for the night. It's already 12:47 am, and I'm getting overly tired, now. I'll be dreaming about my necklace and beach glass to make another. Pleasant dreams to you...

Good-bye, necklace!
