flowers, little bottles & a horse

Spring is here in Texas, as my kalanchoes are blooming the most beautiful brilliant red.
These little bottles are another part of my Art & Soul project. 40 glass bottles filled with shells that I cracked small enough to fit thru some very small tops!
These little mop discs were much harder to crack with my trusty hammer than I expected.
This is a horse pin that I am selling. The Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo has been going for almost 2 weeks, so rodeo fever has hit our city one more time. It is the largest rodeo of its kind, and draws alot of attention each year.
I was fortunate enough to receive some beautiful Japanese dyed cotton fabric from a kind & generous yoga class friend. I used 20 gauge copper wire, but will try some 22 gauge next time.
Gotta go now. Time to tie some bottles onto 40-4x4s!

Wow! those little vials are cool, but look like lots of work. It's going to be such a lovely project. Can't wait to see the result. Love you!
