Cairns, Montaña de Oro


Of all the things people leave behind, I love finding cairns on my hikes along the coast.  Stones scoured by wind and waves are reconfigured into temporary sculptures that never look out of place.  Patience rewarded by balance.  Something to aspire to.

Coffee and Autumn Postmark'd Art


For Round 23 of Postmark'd Art I chose the Coffee and Autumn themes.  My fused coffee cups are backed by muslin I stained with a real cup dipped in the bottom of our coffee pot.  Then I carved beans on an eraser for stamping.  The scrappy pumpkins are all fused and machine stitched.  What's not to love about Autumn?
