...playing in my garden! Captured her just in time and created a new little home for her! The floor in her little jar has vintage deep purple rhinestones imbedded in clay and some wild silken grasses. Her jar is embellished with bits of antique lace covered with vintage velvet milinary leaves and buds in the softest lavender and silk flowers that i have inset a vintage glass rhinestone into the center of each! The base of the jar also has a ring of the silk flowers with the rhinestones as well! I attached a length of chain with a toggle closure and a tiny pearl pink heart that dangles around the cover....

I found myself slipping,
the soft earth deteriorating
beneath the soul of my feet.
The tears I had shed
muddied the path of my
Then i realized I had to turn and
follow my footprints
to a peace that will heal my being
with a new direction.
My new days will be built with
a strong foundation for
MY NEW LIFE!
Yesterday was my last day of work. The sweet times became shadowed all too often by confusion, despair, emptiness... It was time to go. And when i was told that my family could not come first any longer...the decision was carved in stone.
My todays and tommorrows will be filled with splashes of color and light. I came home to plant my garden and prepared a wonderfully comfort food meal...SLUMGULION...! We have begun to plan summer jaunts...and the SUN IS SHINING!
