Turtles & Daffodils….

It's almost like the Daffodils grow "wild" around here! I mean, they are every where. I have so many "bunches" in my yard that I rush to the windows and doors every morning to see how many have bloomed. Most of them are just now starting to bloom, so I've cut several of the flowers for my awesome little "Turtle" vase ~ is he not the cutest thing you ever saw! And he comes fully equipped with his own "frog" inside to hold your flowers in place. These little turtles are for sale at the
"Duck Pond Pottery"
, which happens to be some very new & sweet friends of ours. Besides having a great Pottery Shop here in Pisgah Forest, they just opened a shop on Etsy, so you can actually have one of these awesome little fellows for yourself. He sits just perfectly on my stove and makes me smile daily:

Just click on the turtle pictures and you will be taken right to their shop. Be sure and read the story about how the glaze came about!

So when I was in my "Turtle" mode today, I made this awesome little bracelet for the shop
and named it "Life In The Fast Lane":

The little turtle is strung up with some gorgeous Black Tigereye, which is my favorite stone, besides turquoise. Some believe that when a turtle shows up in your life it is usually a reminder to pay attention or you will miss opportunities. To the Native Americans, the turtle was a symbol of Mother Earth and a reminder that she provides for all of our needs. Sometimes we can't see the forest for the trees, and the turtle can slow us down to help us see our opportunities. So I guess I'll take the advice of the turtle and just be patient and wait for all of these little fellows to open:

Off to enjoy the sunset ~ Hope you are all having a wonderful Monday!!!

Xxoo & peace always ~ Kathy

P.S. tomorrow I'm going to talk about "Twitter" ~ perhaps you noticed the little message up here on the right side of my blog! It looks like an interesting little "toy", so I'll check it out and see what it's all about. Let me know if you want to join me on "Twitter" and we'll check it out together.

  1. Hi Kathy,
    That turtle vase is the cutest thing!
    I wanted to tell you that I got my "Garden Party" earrings today and I love them! I am wearing them right now with my red and black "Bad Hair Day" sweats...well they don't exactly match, but what the heck!!
    I've got my fingers crossed that I am the winner in your blog contest tomorrow too. That would really make my week!
    Thanks so much!
