Onondaga Nation, Tomatoes and Sand Dollar Earrings

14 Aug

In The Heard Museum in Phoenix last year, I found a beautiful 53″ long wall hanging entitled “Greetings and Thanks to the Natural World, a daily thanksgiving inspired by the Onondaga Nation, Haudenosaunee’. I’ll show you a piece a day for the next ten days.

A Daily Thanksgiving inspired by the Onondaga Nation

Special thanks today go to three of my friends with whom I sing for a lovely hardworking afternoon and to J for a share in his wonderful tomato crop.

Still sorting! Today I came across such a little treasure in a box of forgotten earrings. I have shown you Sand Dollars before but these are tiny and so perfect and I have never worn them.They measure just over 1cm in diameter. Click here and here to see earlier mentions.

I am loath to break one of my Sand Dollars to find the ‘five perfect doves’ mentioned but am very tempted. Watch this space!

    That message is so perfect for me today and my Mom would be loving your tomatoes! She grows them and then cans them for sauce etc.

    FYI, I believe when you find a wet, hairy sand dollar at the beach, it’s still alive. The smooth ones are dead.

      Oh no! I wish I had known that 40 years ago.
