Frida Kahlo, Earrings and First Words

I’ve been trying to find time to get to Studio 10 in Redruth to see the Frida Kahlo exhibition since last Sunday. I made it at last, met some lovely people, saw some amazing art and bought some earrings! I just loved the humour in these mosaic characters by Susie Chaikin, an artist I am delighted to have discovered today. Do have a look at her website by clicking on the red link. I featured some of her husband, Mike Chaikin’s, kinetic sculptures in April without knowing they were his – sorry! You can see them here.

Here are the earrings I bought today. I need to find out the name of the artist maker. (I have now been told they have been made by Anne Boo Whetter.

Beautiful earrings

Sorting through stuff again – it’s ongoing! – I re-discovered Baby’s Progress, a little booklet given to my Mum to record my progress many years ago. Here is one page from it.

Mum’s record of me!

Molehills, First Cornish Daffodils and Grand-Baby T Talking

1   This morning at choir a friend told us about the moles in their garden, such beautiful little creatures, velvety smooth with little pink noses. When I asked if they didn’t do damage in the garden, G said that, no, they work together. The moles make the mole hills and he collects the wonderful finely worked soil that results and puts it in the polytunnel. Now that’s what I call working with Nature – just beautiful!

I don’t have a photo of a mole so will just share this lovely one of our choir leader, Claire and one of our delightful Choir-babies, T.

T, one of our Choir-babies, enjoying the session. We are all enjoying watching him grow up.

2   The lovely Mr S bought me my first Cornish daffodils of the season. We have some in bud in the garden but they aren’t quite ready yet.

3    I had a lovely conversation with KJ tonight who tells me that suddenly Grand-baby T’s talking is taking off and she is repeating everything said to her and beginning to make jokes with words. I just love the magic of a child learning to talk!
