being still

I woke up to a beautiful sunrise this weekend.  It was calm and serene.
It was going to be another scorcher...around 102 degrees.
I decided to stay in my studio (and air conditioning!) and make a few things that I have been meaning to make for  a while...

 I have had very good luck selling my necklaces with vintage buttons and tatting. 
 I added a little bird, part of an old clip on earring and tiny key to this one.  

 A necklace made with some charms I have had for a while..

But this was the most fun!  I made dozens of buttons from clay.   I was up until 3:00 am waiting for them to finish firing.  I am going to use them on pillows and necklaces.  They would look great on purses and shopping bags!

Tiny bird houses on rusty wire.  A perfect decoration for potted plants.

silver spoon, vintage button and bird
old skeleton key, charm and tiny bee

old key, ruler, can opener and silver spoon

I had a great weekend...being still.   I ate tomatoes, zucchini, spinach and peppers from my garden,  practiced my yoga, watched the birds in the water sprinkler and ate ice cream.   

Sometimes we just have to be still and listen to what our minds, body and soul need.

P.S.  I have a facebook page now...Fat Cow Studio...I hope you will stop by and "like" me!  I don't have much up yet, but I am working on it!

I sell my art at Witherspoons Antique Mall in Granbury TX and Angels with Attitudes in Glen Rose, TX   I have a few things  on Etsy.  I have neglected my site for a while, but have plans to put more stuff on there soon.  If you are interested in any of my things, just give me a shout!

That is what you call being still?!? Seriously, given your definition, I have to tell you that "she" is a rock! Because even being "still" you get more done than "she" ever does being busy ;) Just this old cat's viewpoint from down here at the food bowl MOL

I'm glad you enjoyed a weekend being "still". Gotta go lay down ON my rock ;) Purrs!


P.S. - "Her" and I both think your creations are wonderful! I started to say "they rock" but "she" gave me the old rolled eyeball look....
