Blue Skies and Butterflies

I am pretty much into spring mode judging by the colour pallete of the new butterfly pendants. You know, I don't always (almost never) plan just exactly how I'm going to finish up a design when it comes to the final pieces. Sometimes I have a very clear idea. Other times it's a matter of how the mood strikes me when I get out the glazes and go to work. Most of the time it seems like I am very much influenced by the light and season around me. This time it seems pretty clearly that I am thinking blue skies, spring, and soft shoots of new green coming up in the garden. I am very ready for spring and it is only January. Ah, but spring does come early here. I am so ready.



A good few of you looked in on our dusty world out here in W TX last Friday. This is my normal winter sky up there, looking through one of the pecan trees. Fabulous blue we get out here. It's cooler. No raining mud. Or at least if it did, it was while I was asleep while the rains came through. Thank goodness. I am ever so relived that Donna commented that she has actually seen it rain mud. I was beginning to think that I had figmented raining mud out of my own imagination.

I never know what the finished product will be until I finish it...I usually have no plan in mind and the hands have free will.
The finished product is always a surprise to me!

Love the new butterfly's!

Sweet little butterflies - I am sooo ready for spring myself. But here - it is snowing again... sigh! I wish our skies were blue. Wishing you a wonderful day!

Hmmmmm LeAnn,

I think you have the right idea. If you can't have spring make a bit of your own. The colors and butterflies are sure to bring a smile to any winter beaten soul!!

LeAnn - your new pendants are so pretty, and a wonderful reminder that Spring will come soon (okay, maybe not that soon....).

Those butterflies are adorable! The little beads you make are gorgous. I love the necklace you made for my grandma, she loves it!
