Glazing...and perfect imperfection...

Welcoming in the New Year should have been something I done with slow, restful calm
...you know me, I couldn't stay away from the clay and linen and went into a little frenzy.
The results are these new glazed clay tags!
These little glazed Hummingbirds are new for 2012 and they are so sweet.

I also made other glazed tags, like this large one with bird friends.
the backs of the tags are not glazed, so you can still pen your message on it.
Not only did I glaze the day away (sorry, had to), but I did make some cute new brooches to add to the range which will be revealed very, very soon.

In between all of this making, I spent lots of time in my old rocker on the front porch, whiling away the day, coffee in hand and noticed this freak of nature on my very, very old rose 'tree'.
A pure white rose on a hot pink rose tree!
It may be a freak of nature, but I think it is
a perfect imperfection
...and you know I like that!
PS- The Store will re-open this Friday, 6th January...if I can wait that long!

  2. Hey - so pleased to have found your blog. I was really inspired by one of your pins and used it for wrapping my siblings christmas presents (using Grandma's doilies!) which I've put on my current blog page (and linked back) Not as beautiful as yours but I had so much fun making them and became addicted to fimo all over again.
    Anyway - lovely Planet Jane just told me she is a friend of yours...and any friend of Janes.....!
    Nice to meet you,
