Hello August August 3, 2019 00:00
I can't believe that it's August already! Slow down summer. Slow down 2019. Our gardens are thriving with the mix of sun and rain that we've gotten. I've been spending most of my time picking and preserving our vegetables.
The tomatillos are beginning to come in. We love salsa verde and freeze as many tomatillos as we can harvest so that we can make salsa throughout the year. I love their vibrant color. They are the color of August's birthstone. Peridot is bright and fresh and juicy. Lucky are those that call that stone their birthstone. This arrow necklace is wire-wrapped with peridot colored wire and the chain is adorned with a trio of faceted peridot beads. It can be found in my 'arrow and bullet jewelry' collection in the shop.

Cairns: My Connection to Earth and Sea July 13, 2019 14:27
Take me to the beach or river and I'll always come home with a stone or ten. I have a collection of large fossil formations that I found in the woods and creeks here in Tennessee. I've carried them with me every time I moved.

Meet The Team June 29, 2019 13:03
I thought that I'd introduce my sidekicks on this fine Caturday afternoon. Magnolia (aka Bigs) is facing the camera and Mae (Lil Mae) is the one on top. We adopted both cats from shelters. Magnolia was 1 1/2 years old and Mae was just a kitten. We've had them about 2 1/2 years. It's been a while since we had young cats. To say they are a handful (and entertaining) is an understatement.
Please note that these cats are allowed in the studio, however they are not allowed up on my desk or workbench. I'm telling you this because I know that some folks are allergic to cats and want to know if they are purchasing from a pet free home. Now you know.
Enjoy the last weekend of June,
Katie, Magnolia and Mae

Summer Solstice 2019 June 21, 2019 08:10
I woke up this morning to a volunteer sunflower in full bloom. What a perfect way to begin summer! Here's to a summer filled with gardening, swimming, fireflies, picnics, hiking, camping, traveling and whatever else you enjoy doing on these long, hot days.
A Change Is In The Wind June 16, 2019 12:00
Now that the gardens are planted it's time to settle into the rhythm of summer. The hot afternoons bring me indoors. My studio is a quiet spot filled with light. Music dances through the air. There are piles of beach stones and river rocks waiting to be drilled and antler tips that need drilling and sanding.
