A Gift, A Ghost and Today’s Work

At our last choir two lovely people gave me some bits of jewellery  to add to my glass work.

Beautiful bits from Lisa and Helen

This ghostly apparition delighted me this morning, especially when the rainbows passed over it.

Our sunshine ghost

I cut the glass for this one a few days ago but didn’t have all the right additions until Monday evening. I have worked on it all afternoon and am pleased with the final result though the photo looks gold and it isn’t! It’s silver!

Today’s work, incorporating the two little turquoise earrings, top left in above photo, and a piece of sea-glass

Walk Around the Back

After another wild and very wet night, the sun shone by about midday and we went for a walk up along the Great Flat Lode trail that is right behind our house. It’s a good stomp for finding beautiful things!

Sewing, Candle and Crackers

1   My new project is to embellish duvet covers for one of our Live-wires (can’t really call them the  Grand-babies any more as they are all growing up – 2,4,6 and 7 years old).   Live-wire B, who has just turned two, is about to move into her cot-bed and I am sorting out her new duvet covers.  More about the project as it develops. Today has been spent tacking!

Sunshine, Raindrops and e e cummings

1    It has been a beautiful Spring day today and I ventured out into the garden. The sunlight was shining through the white Narcissi.

2   There were still raindrops held between the newly sprouted leaves of the Aquilega and, if you click to enlarge and then zoom in, you’ll see the reflection of the trellis work. There’s also a tiny string of raindrops just behind the main drop and the new leaves have a delicate furriness.

3    My lovely sister-in-law reminded me of a poem that just shouts ‘Spring has sprung’ and here it is –

in Just by e e cummings

in Just-
spring          when the world is mud-
luscious the little
lame balloonman
whistles          far          and wee

and eddieandbill come

running from marbles and
piracies and it’s

when the world is puddle-wonderful

the queer

old balloonman whistles
far          and             wee
and bettyandisbel come dancing

from hop-scotch and jump-rope and





balloonMan          whistles

I love it! Spring and the essence of childhood – just glorious!
You’ll find another e e cummings poem in this post.

Weekly Photo Challenge – One Shot Two Ways 2

From Trelissick  yesterday as the tide was going out, the heron and his reflection were standing in the shallow waters finding something tasty to eat.
