I have taken a break from my Ireland posts because of technical difficulties posting photos so I thought I would just put up a picture of one of my favorite flower vases. It's an old coffee pot the has a slight leak in it so you can't rely on it for hot coffee. I just put a jar in it and voila! A pretty pot for sweet peas, cosmos and lacecap hydrangeas.
Speaking of new life, we have 9 new chicks hatched in the last few days in the hen house and who can resist a baby photo op!
I am an artist trying to make a living doing what I love.Sometimes its photography, sometimes needle felting, sometimes painting. I live on a five acre hobby farm in a rural area 45 minutes from Victoria B.C. I was a letter carrier for Canada Post for 10 years and after too many commutes and a few successful craft fairs, I decided to take the plunge and quit to pursue a life in the "starving artist" category. The holistic success has been tremendous. Living and learning along the way about myself, the world, the business of selling your wares and how it all affects you. Its all good.To have the gift of living where I live, and being able to walk amongst the trees and moss is a joy in my life.
