*time to sea*
Around Christmas time I had the pleasure of meeting Sam. He is my daughter Alex's friend. They both attend Ohio University and Sam is on an internship in Ireland right now. We got to talking a bit and he is a very creative guy. He had spent a few years collecting interesting antiques and objects and fashioning them into necklaces. Two days ago I received a gift from Sam. My heart was touched. My necklace is called *time to sea*. He wrote me that the piece was made from Lake Erie lake glass, a 1940 Bearus cocktail watch and what's left of an early 20th century rosary. (I guess the tattoo I have helped influence the rosary....lol) There's definitely a lot about me in this necklace and I wanted to share it with you.
Thank you so very much, Sam Sloma!!
*time to sea*
I decided to share a very old painting of mine when I thought for a whole second that watercolors were my thing....lol. Anyway.... I just love poppies but I can see in this painting that I had no concept of proper shading....lol. I still like looking at it though. It's a good thing this one is behind glass or it would most definitely get a *manon makeover*...lol!!
And the winner is......
