~ life as clay... . .

c   l   a   y ... .   .     .

the perfect malleable substance  ~

~ just   w a i t i n g

  for our warm and energized hands
to give it

l   i   f   e

a tangible expression
of... .

 u  s

yes.... .   .


c   l   a   y

is yet another
' m e t a p h o r '
for our own lives.

building and growing into a unique form
if we are so wise as to get out of the way
and let it reveal the

m  e  s  s  a  g  e

we strive a lifetime to find.

building a strong enough base
in which to support all the learnings & gatherings
that we pile on top
and make it through that

  h   o   t 

kiln firing without cracking.

finally stable enough
to balance the flourishes
that we so eagerly and enthusiastically
know are ours alone to display.

to feel it
 to offer up
 to see
who we are discovering
we have the

p  o  t  e  n  t  i  a  l

to become.

able to put our crowning

c  h  e  r  r  i  e  s

 on top ~

starting to stand tall in who we
discover ourselves to be~

and then... .   .

with what
 with whom
with which surroundings
 do we 

~   c  h  o  o  s  e   ~

 to stand with  ?

flowers... raining down from the sky ~*
from the ether~*
.....purely delightful ~*

this time i put in a ' fresh ' floral installation  as backdrop for the new merchandise ~ ~ *
i started out with  just a few sprigs of fresh ranunculus blooms & some flowering greens gently hung by ribbons and colored string with a backdrop of just cut blossoming branches  suspended horizontally behind ~ * ~ * such a nice, new energy of the fresh florals to be in the mix and part of the props this time.
.... it's like having a friend there creating the Vision with me ~*

~ jasmine tarts......

~ the sweet, intoxicating scent of Jasmine flowers* ... .  one of the first blooms of the spring !
i love this Jasmine and just want to roll in it and eat it and.... . Become it ~* !
i end up making anything i can think of out of it ~! first, of course... . is a Tart ~ * you know, i've come to love my limitations, as they keep things and decisions so comfortingly simple.
so...... i have just ~1~ lonely pear  in the fruit bowl on the table &  a few berries in the fridge.
then i noticed another first bloom... . my striped rose ~* . ... so that had to get tucked in for a bit of taste and color. the sweet pear sliced very thin to show off the beautiful seeds & core hiding inside. ~ sprinkle, sprinkle, sprinkle ..... .   . and there you go, a true Feast for the eyes, palate & soul ~ *
~ be sure to make some Jasmine sugar to use for everything ... .
. ......... and bake ~ * ~ so sweeeeet !
