A Winner and a Chromophilliac Sneak Peek

Hello Monday...
I'm afraid to report that Sunday escaped me entirely.  In fact I think this section of the West Coast slipped straight from Saturday night into Monday morning under a dense haze of fog and scattered showers, along with a sheepskin blanket, utter exhaustion, and approximately three quarts of tea.  My sincere apologies for making you wait!
But for all you birdie lovers out there, we do have a winner this morning!  Thanks to the trusty bot, number 15 was chosen, which happens to be the one and only

Here's what she had to say:
"how has the earth been good to me?
the earth has much for me to learn when she lures me out the doors, into summer, into winter.
the earth blesses me with my favorite foods: salmon and garden greens.
most importantly, the earth has brought me into communion with creatives such as YOU!"

Lady, keep an eye on your mail box this week!

I loved, LOVED reading what you had to say, what you have received, what has stopped you in your tracks.  Each beautiful comment brought a smile to my face and a renewed love for this planet we share.  In fact, I can't believe I had not asked that question before!  I heartily encourage you to spend a few minutes today and read through the comments - talk about feeling bolstered by the strength of community!

Really, I'm just always thankful for you.
I've been working away on a collection of rings for you, set with various bits and bobbles of treasure, individual pottery pieces, collections on a color theme, even a sliver of weathered sea glass!  An official shop update is in order, so let's say Thursday March 8th in the am.  I'll be posting images of the work here, but will not be accepting reserves on this particular batch of rings (I like to switch up the ways in which I post new work, attempting to make it fair for all).
Crossing fingers and tail feathers for a week of small delights and little surprises for you all!

Congratulations to the winner! I'm sure she will love the gifts.

Today your post brought smiles to me as I love the colour blue. I like your curly hair too ;-)

Where I live it is windy and sunny today. I am not a fan of wind unless I am walking on the beach looking out over the beautiful crashing waves. But I like that today the wind is chasing away clouds for a few days of glorious sunshine.

Love and hugs

Joyful - I think you just received our last week's weather... we're now back in softest blankets of gray and the need for extra layers. Bbbrrrrr!

Snailentina - I got my eye on YOU!

MLJ - xox

Caitlin - They are such addictive fun to put together... I really, truly can not leave them alone.

She - (One) I've seen those fingers and fat is about the last word and (two) you're in such good luck because I have some serious basketball knuckles and I like to make ring that fit ME. So absolutely there will be some larger sizes.
