The China Fishing Hole

It doesn't take much to make me happy.
Junk makes me happy.
And my husband is glad when it is free. That's why we have a metal detector. But I forgot it when we left to go fishing. There is a wanna be treasure hunter in us both.
I saw a little piece of blue sticking out of the mud about 10 feet from the rivers edge at one of our fishing holes. I started digging at it with a stick and came up with 6 pieces of blue and white. That was weekend before last.We went back for fishing this last weekend, I took and small spade, and dug up more in the same spot, which I have dubbed "The China Fishing Hole".

I also found some green and pink, more than I have pictured here. So much more fun than fishing in my book. Especially when none of my fish have been big enough to keep.
And you can't make jewelry, or mosaics, or much of anything out of fish,,, just supper.
I will take a big shovel "and" the metal detector next time. Let the man fish. I have better things to bring in. I just "know" there is more glass in that spot.
One mans trash is another mans treasure!
This is just a shot of the sail boats on Lake Guntersville, a favorite place of mine.

Stained glass from Dover Publications

I just love stained glass,,it's on my list of crafts to do one of these days. I thought it was peaceful and a good way to start the weekend. I hope all of you enjoy your weekend! I'm going fishing!

Magical Fireflies

The lightning bugs/fireflies are back!
This photo, is of fake ones, but the real ones showed up about 2 weeks ago here in the south. You can have some of your own at this site: They look real!
This is about the only bug I like. Really,,,they are slow and gentle and have helped science in the cures with cancer and other diseases. An amazing thing really.

Somerset Studio Gallery.... Arrived!!

You can get published if you are patient. Even when you get the word, it takes a while for the issue to arrive. Having the issue makes it really real. Having the patience is worth it. So give it a go! I have other creations submitted, so I am learning more patience. A good Thing!
The above photo is some lace and buttons I use on the Lace Keepers.
It is a nice issue, and should be on the stands now.

I love the Sew Somerset issue now out as well. I took some pictures of it to show you soon.
A good way to start June.
Here is the link to the Gallery to order the issue.
