It's my glory...

...and many have tried to whisk it away,
but the soul of an artist stands the true test of time.
The creations we produce have a uniqueness all their own,
they have a soul, even down to the smallest thing...
a bar of soap!
The promise I give to you is original,
given with heart and soul...
My soaps will now be labeled under 'The Wild Thing' label.
A focus on Nature and the wild things...

Eucalyptus essential oil...
sure it smells like Vicks,
but what gave you that comforted feeling
when Mom or Granny rubbed it all over your chest...
it was healing and it was love!
I will also be making the eucalyptus in a candle,
you will not believe how relaxing the scent is when
you light the candle in the bathroom...
turn out the lights
lock the door
put on a CD
breathe in the cure
and feel the warmth of the natural essence.
Sure it's strong, but if you have a winter cold, this is just what
the doctor ordered, peace and quiet!

I will also be selling these CDs of Moya Brennan,
so all it takes is an email...

Yes, the eyes have it...

Per requests, I've compiled another necklace, a baby eyeball...
is there any other!

Beautiful fire-glazed glass beads embellish this funky piece,
made from the eye set of an old baby doll...
hey, nothing goes to waste in my neck o the woods!
The Black Forest kinda woods...yes, they're not for everyone,
but they are for the lovers of know,
the 'sickos' of the world AND
I wear that badge proudly!

be afraid...ho, ho, ho...

I just finished pricing and setting out my newest nightlight,
one of my faves I must admit, the base is to die for...

Most everyone that walks in goes 'ewww...creepy'...
but in walks this young gal from Iowa City,
she heads immediately for 'the heads'...
love at first sight, then when I turned on the light...
What can I say, but Iowa City is an artsy town
and the kids know what they like...
She also fell in love with the 'Dingle Babies'(wind chimes)
and told me of an art fair and a shop in Iowa City for artists
and their strange works of art.

I must check this place out...she's also interested in eyeball earrings...
so guess what I'm doing,
besides a nice glass of Moscato D'Asti...
next post!
