Trying to make next Christmas.
With peekaboo patriotic rock.
Every museum should do this. Our tickets to Brookgreen Gardens are good for seven consecutive days (at a very reasonable $12/adult and $6/child). Which allows for visiting in short doses, and makes for a very pleasant way to introduce someone with the attention span of a 4-year-old to the arts.
Along the road through Huntington Beach State Park we found this sight, basking in the morning sun, perhaps looking for some breakfast. Compare it to the gator-in-the-dark, and you’ll see why I called that one a baby.
Freighters like this come in and out of Jacksonville port all day long. Still, each time I see one, my primitive brain wonders how in the world that behemoth could sail anywhere, let alone float. Yes, I have the same problem with jumbo jets.
Since our move to Key Largo, I’ve been operating without my fully loaded workshop. I miss it desperately, and can’t wait to have everything back together. But I’m happy to report that being away from my studio has not in any way stunted my compulsive jewelry making habit. I’ve just had to go back to simpler techniques like beading my own handmade (!) findings together, and hammering wire wrapped silver. The results have been light and airy. In order of appearance: long sterling silver & fluorite lariat necklaces Wisp and Whisper, sterling open hoop earrings Scribble, and super long sterling silver & amber earrings Harvest.
