Maria Goti

Loving this one of a kind creation by Maria Goti. It was inspired by cactus and carnivorous plants! It works as a ring and a sculpture!
You can see and purchase some of her jewelry on her etsy page.

Nut Locket

I image a Nut Locket might be worn by a sentimental squirrel. Rowena Murray has even more lockets here.

Chao-Hsien Kuo

I am completely in love with the movement of Chao-Hsien Kuo's jewelry. He says, "I want to capture the gesture of a flower, and to depict the energy and liveliness of a plant." You can see a few more pieces of his work on Klimt02.

I love you John Dyer!

On occasion I browse through John Dyer's hand cut gemstones and this one makes me drool. This is a 12.23 Carat Afghani Tourmaline.
For fun just check out his whole catalog.

Tim Harding

I am always amazed when an artist can manipulate materials in such a way like Tim Harding's work. He uses fiber and textiles which are layered and stitched in a way reminiscent to pointillism. You can see more of his work here on Artful Home.

I love the koi which remind me of my studio floor.

Homemade Pizza & Pie

Lately Joe and I have been using up pizza dough that he made. I love making pizza, the smell of the dough is wonderful and the pizza tastes great. Here we have a goat cheese and mushroom pizza, then peperoni and mozzarella.

This pizza has hot pepper and basil from my vegetable garden. And some mushrooms for me!

I also made my great grandma's lemon meringue pie recipe and it came out really well. Very Yummy!
