Día de los Muertos

Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead)

I've been in the studio working on inventory for a couple upcoming shows.
The theme for one of the shows (Halloween & Vine) is Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead)
This week I've been working on these fun colorful necklaces (I still need add a patina to the brass wings)
I also have been making new Fairy Gardens & Night Lights with a Halloween/Fall theme.
Fun Fun Fun
Next week I'll start working on Winter themed goodies...which is odd with the warm temps outside.
I'll crank up the AC and turn up the tunes.
 Hope you are enjoying your Summer too!

Elderberries grow wild around my little town. We even have a world famous Inn here in Oakhurst named after the berries, Erna's Elderberry House.
I'm lucky enough to have a couple Elderberry brushes on our property. This weekend the berries were just right for the pickin'.
So I made jelly from this recipe

What is your favorite flavor of jam or jelly?

a little getaway

Cambria Molly Heart's Ease

A little weekend getaway...
After last weeks high temps, we headed to the beach for a couple days to cool off.
There is nothing like the cool salty air to refresh the soul.
We hit all my favorite places, including Heart's Ease, which has a charming garden.

Today it's back to reality...
Starting off with washing a load of sandy clothes and towels, then heading up to the studio...

in the middle of July

I switched to a new variety (new for me) of sweet pea seeds a couple years ago.
I'm so amazed I'm still getting sweet smelling bouquets in the middle of July.
Our summer temps here range from the mid 80's to high 90's (very low humidity, thank god)
So if you live where the summer heat is sky high, I highly recommend trying THESE.

lights decklights2

A long time ago (over 10 years) I bought strands of patio lights in hopes of adding a soft glow to the deck. 
And every year Summer seemed to slip by without putting them up.
But not this year, we finally put them up (we meaning Kurt)
Now I think it's time to throw a party to cerebrate...

Have a Happy 4th of July!
