Is that... the sun?


It's amazing how a little ray of sunshine can completely lighten my mood. The rain has been wonderful for starting the seeds in my container garden but I'm glad that it has stopped.

This is a picture of a cement birdbath that sits in my garden. It was made with a mold from a rhubarb leaf, and I love it - the earthy color, the heft of it, the way it captures with amazing detail the veins of the enormous leaf. I have yet to see anything bathing in it other than the occasional gnat, but I am hopeful. My sister Jennifer bought it for me (recluctantly) as a Christmas gift last year, while we were doing the craft fair in Hollison, Massachusetts.I made - and sold - 150 of these hand-decorated ceramic tile memo boards - can you say - carpal tunnel? These make great gifts, so if you're interested in purchasing memo boards, send me a comment.
