Out with the Old and In with the New?

Weathered

Happy New Year  (2013) to Family and Friends!  

I wrote an acrostic of what I thought this coming year should be like for me. Although I haven’t been active in writing on my blog this year; it is my hope to challenge myself to write and create more. Both mediums are very therapeutic to me and balance my life out.

This painting “Weathered” was created a few months ago.  The idea was taken at an antique show in Massachusetts. I was drawn to this setup because of my love for the garden, the ocean and antique accents.   The colors that attracted me to this picture gave me a sense of what has been used in the past, but is very welcomed, for some,  in our lives today. Most of us cherish aged pieces from the past; it gives us comfort and can remind us of situations or people who were once in our lives, (warm fuzzies).  In most instances I can’t agree with the saying “Out with the Old and In with the New”. Some things have emotional ties, maybe an attachment to the past, or just a warm memory you’ve created yourself. It is all in the hands of the individual. So, I will end this with my creative writing piece, enjoy the New Year with lots of love, health and happiness!

Heart of Seaglass

Seaglass….I love the look and the feel of it all. The colors can be stunning!

Every morning we took our walk along the beach; looking for unusual sites and of course varied colors of seaglass.

We had an opportunity to visit Bar Harbor this past weekend and it was gorgeous! The skies and the oceans showed their beautiful hues of blue. Just enjoying the sounds of the ocean and the breezes put us into a relaxed state. I am hoping to use some of this glass to make a few pieces of jewelry and keep the memory of our visit.
