Her Headdress

Hello there. 

These past few summer days have been spent trying to occupy my kids in creative ways...nature walks, trips to the nursery to buy plants, drawing, blowing bubbles.  I love how something as simple as blowing bubbles makes their little hearts happy(at least for awhile, right?)

Richard(the husband guy), is in Indonesia for a couple weeks, & I think it's cool he is on an adventure.  Very happy he gets to see another part of the world.  But I have a feeling this is going to be a LONG 2 weeks!

I have been working on this little clay doll/planter below.  I had been wanting to try & make something like this for awhile & because I love art, I love the outdoors....hey, why not put the two together?  I am really into succulants/cacti  & bonus, they don't need much tending to, which is nice.  Anyway, I finished this piece today. She wears a  paper feather headdress with a butterfly attached, & little plants coming out of the top of her head.  It is about 5 inches high.  Next time I want to try & go bigger.


  1. she's adorable - love the feather headdress and the succulents peeking out from behind! great way to combine two loves.
