Night Visitors

Can you see the glowing eye? This little owl and its friend landed on our steps the other night. My hubby came running in saying, "Get the camera!" Sorry the picture is a little blurry. I'm just getting used the my new camera, but I did manage to capture one of them on it. We've also been having flocks of little wood ducks fly in every evening to roost by our pond. It's funny to sit out at night and listen to them squeek; they don't quack like other ducks. They are too far away for me to get a good picture of them though. It's always a nature adventure around here.

I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while. I've been working on the big mosaic project and just finished the main pieces and started installing them. I then have to tile the whole bathroom around them and paint the walls. I will definitely post pictures of it when I'm done.

Meanwhile, I have managed to make a little jewelry. Shawn at Silo Studios has requested that I make some colorful, funky pieces for the next show so that's what I'm trying to accomplish. I'm using some vintage junk as the focal pieces with some glass and fabric beads in some of the necklaces. I've been neglecting I need to focus on that, and maybe some bracelets. Here are a few of the new ones.

What an amazing array of jewellery! And of course I love the key an dbottle top best.

You must have been thrilled by your little visitor.

I call the bottle cap necklace, Prince Albert's Safari, because the image is Prince Albert from a tobacco can and there is a lion on the key so I put African looking beads. Hopefully someone else at the sale will like it too.
Thanks Julie!

We often hear them but seldom see them here.
