I Like These Things

I'm posting things I like from time to time, in order to remind people to buy handmade gifts. In fact I think I'll just go ahead and post a Buy Handmade link right here in case you are moved to sign the pledge. Look on my gadgets and take the plunge! These are great gifts folks!

In my own garden the roses are looking a bit raggedy, but the colocasia are thriving.

colocasia 'gigantea'

colocasia 'black magic'

colocasia 'mojito'
These are easy plants to grow--'gigantea' is really fun as each leaf emerges like a big burrito and then unfurls into an amazing size...each larger than the last!

O.K So I Stole Too...

When I went on my little trespassing photo shoot--there is clearly a 'No Trespassing' sign--I grabbed a couple of poppy pods from the gentleman's garden as well. I made a mold from them and am now having fun making poppy pod clay earrings. Criminal?

So far in robin's egg blue, brown, sunny yellow,
and red.
