The Microcosm

As they staggered to high ground from 1) the sudden inundation of their world, 2) the survivors communicated furiously to formulate a plan of escape...

 the tragic aftermath, 3) few made it, some perished of secondary causes after reaching the other side, and some died trying. 4) A lone survivor questions his existence.

(so I found quite interesting to observe in a tub of peaches from our backyard... )

Rory, Zeroes & Compass Rings

When I gave my handcrafted polyclay compass rings to my better half's nephews, the younger immediately preceded to pick off the propeller and radiator, and the older put both atop the mantle for safekeeping. The rings were still too large for their tiny fingers.

Wanted to thank and share links from the variety of fellow Etsians who featured me in their blogs and treasuries recently. I was delighted to find some really spectacular pieces among them- here are a sampling of the highlights I spotted:
by Monikarose: crochet scarves & phone pouches, beaded jewelry and unique copper and beaded bookmarks out of Melbourne Australia!

The Deep Blue Etsy Treasury
by ShannaMichele: ethnic, Bohemian, world-influenced jewelry designs - almost want to pick up and hold all beautiful pieces here- like beachwalk-found treasures.
by TotusMel: Check out this girl's awesome blog, not to mention really wicked masks, ankle corsets, and necklaces made using needle tatting. Vicious. Magnificent. Opulent.

Divine Deco Etsy Treasury
by Nansglam: Breathtakingly extravagant handmade jewelry (some elegantly simple)- seriously lavish pieces.
