New Things 10-25-12

I am not putting these things up until next week or later, depending on the Frankenstorm that is coming, hopefully can sell some this weekend at the 4H set up.  But here are the newest things out of the kiln this you like them?

The odd little curled up thingies on the bottom of the second picture are fortune cookies...there are gourds, pumpkins, Chakra beads, a moon goddess face, heart paws, and two sided lotus Om beads.

My Entry for the Hooters Challenge!

Here is the last batch of owl connectors that I did a few weeks back.  These are going to be entered in the Hooters Challenge on Artisan Whimsy.  Not that I think they stand of chance of winning because there are fabulous artists there, but I like them and they have sold very well for me.

Each eye and beak is rolled out by hand and added onto the head with slip before the wires are added.  Then they are glazed and fired.   Thanks for looking!

thanks for stopping by, take care!

Getting Ready

Getting ready for the setup in Cairo, WV tomorrow.  Sounds like a fun day!  Vendors, food and big engines running all day!

I made more earrings and button bracelets, have a card of my ceramic buttons, and my drum carder and some alpaca to card.  Should be fun.  Will let you know how it went!

Time is Flying By!

I have a set up next week in Cairo, a small country village if you will, a few miles down the road from home.  It is only on Saturday and from what I understand there is going to be a bag pipe player along with several big engines going all at the same time.  Some of these engines were used to run oil and gas wells around here.  That is going to be a lot of noise..A.LOT.OF.NOISE.

But, I made some earrings anyway...thinking I'm going to be able to stand it all day...

They may be too weird for around here, but I like them.  My own ceramic beads along with white metal findings and wood beads.
What do you think?

Millie had a spasm this evening.  It only lasted a little while (maybe two minutes from beginning to end) but it scared me half to death.  It all began when it looked like she had stepped on something that hurt her foot.  She was holding up her left front foot, but still walking around.  I picked her up to check her foot and then all of a sudden, her body began to stiffen, her neck and down her back.  When I set her on the floor, her back was raised up like a scared cat, and then seconds later she seemed fine.  Another thing tho, while I was holding her, praying for her and trying to comfort her she got hot...HOT and shaky for just a few seconds.  She did not pant or gasp for just a few minutes she was fine...wanted to go outside to do some business and came back inside and started licking her back foot like nothing had gone on at all.

I was shaking so badly but got online to a Chin site and asked some questions.  It seems at her age, eight or nine, that is wouldn't be epilepsy, that seems to come on early in their lives.  It might have been a sugar low some suggested.  Another said possible heart problem.  Some said to watch her, but it may never happen again...I don't know what it was, she still seems fine, but I don't know if I can go to bed this evening and sleep...I know I will call her vet in the morning and that can't come soon enough.

I love her so much...This was her summer cut earlier this year.

thanks for stopping by and take care...
