Time for some rest & relaxation... just a few short days, we'll be going to the beach for a whole week! I can't wait! Of course, I'm stressing over getting things done before we go. These last few weeks have taken their toll on me [and my housework]. Back to back shows have been awesome, though!! Thanks to everybody that has come out to support me. And, of course, thanks to all of you that support me through the cyber world. I love ya'll!! And you just can't go to the beach without an ankle bracelet...that's how you can monitor your tan lines. So I made this awesome little anklet to wear while I'm there. With all of the "oil hoopla", we decided to go to the Atlantic beach. I've never been there before, since I'm from Louisiana, the Gulf coast is the only beach I've ever strolled. I can't wait! My husband was stationed on the "Isle of Palms" in South Carolina when he was in the Navy, so that's where we are going! He tells me that I'll love it, and I'm sure I will!! Plus, Ozzy & Lita are coming with us and I can't wait to see Ozzy's face the first time he sees the ocean. That little dog is going to go nuts!
I'm so excited about seeing the sea, that it seems as though everything I've made lately has a beach this awesome little bangle bracelet named "me and my love of the sea" and this gorgeous Louisiana/Gulf Coast themed necklace named "Southern Charm". And these are both for sale in the shop, in case you want to seem them closer.

I've been obsessed lately with my patch of daisies growing in the garden. Everyday I run out there to take a picture or two. It's amazing how "individual" flowers really are when you look at them closely. Like this one, for instance, looks like it has angel wings. I just love them!! And my daisies were the inspiration for these:I love how the carved Olive Quartz flowers are not quite exact....just like the daisies. But these are called "Summer Squash Blossoms" ~ because that's what they also remind me of.So as the "dog days of summer" are fast approaching and the katydids are chirping so loud at night you can't hear yourself think, bi-weekly trips to "Queen's Farm" [an all organic farm that's less than 3 miles from my house] is a must! The sweet corn is starting to come in, along with peppers, squashes, potatoes, beans & flowers. Besides the daisies, I think these cone flowers are right up there with some of my favorites, as well.

Well, I guess I had more to share than I thought!! Thanks for sticking around and reading my ramblings...Life is good and I hope you are having a great Summer!!

♥ & peace always ~ Kathy

  1. I cannot tell you how much it means to me that you have come back to the forefront of my life! I have been so inspired by your positive outlook on life. You have truly become an inspiration to me, to find the good in everything around us.
    I hope you have a fabulous time at the beach, as you know that is the place closest to my soul!
    I am so enjoying all of the little trinkets I have started collecting that were your creations. I look forward to enjoying even more of them!
    Give Ozzy and Lita a big ole hug from me, send me many pictures of them at the beach!
    Have a great time... take time to enjoy and relax... you know you deserve it!
    love you
    P.S. Now, I am going to go and order tha awesome bracelet to match the incredible ankle bracelet that I a wearing right now..
