home on the Range

a view from our new home:

whenever i feel homesick, I look to the West
I am humbled and settled
the natural beauty which surrounds me here
keeps me adventurous and peaceful

I do miss my family and friends in the Midwest,
but hope these views are an added perk to plan a visit soon

set them free

these poor little gals have been patiently waiting
for me to set them free...

i'm not entirely sure why i was reluctant to release these.
maybe i just wanted to spend a little more time with them?
the colors and shapes are so fun!
i loved having them in my work space
but now it's time to allow others to enjoy these pieces.
they're finally listed in my enamel shop !

the West is officially getting to me

i can't stop using brass, silver, turquoise, and quills.
items are slowly rolling into my metals-focused shop

fall's last breath

i must confess... these photos are from a couple weeks ago.
the colors were brilliant
the snow, fresh.

i wanted to share them here... it's my favorite seasonal transition :)
hope you enjoy!

had to share....

my evenings recently:

this adorable face makes working from home hard!
who could resist?

oh what a squeal leaped from my lips
when i found this at a local vintage thrift shop:

since moving out to the West...
i find myself infatuated with Southwest design,
& pattern.
(it's already influencing some recent works
simple, natural, minimal, yet adorning)

helps that it's "in fashion" nowadays too
