A R T I S T S P O T L I G H T: KAREN SKILLETT


Karen's jewelry designs have taken a new direction! Her jewelry is now created using different colors of porcelain clay. The colored clays are layered and manipulated into designs, then sliced and rolled to form beads. The beads are sanded down, and fired in a kiln. The fired porcelain is very hard and durable – as hard a quartz stones! The beads are tumbled and polished -- not glazed! The finished beads are combined with sterling silver to create the jewelry.

This beautiful new jewelry collection will be featured at

COUNTING YOUR BLESSINGS

"When you're worried and you can't sleep,
Just count your blessings instead of sheep,
And you'll fall asleep Counting Your Blessings." 
 Irving Berlin

STARS AND HEARTS

Classic icons like this star and heart are popular favorites of gardeners. These two are new for the Holiday Sale and feature the concentric circle motif.

The hole in the middle of the heart is a perfect place to plant a "steppable", a plant that can take a footstep or two. My very favorite for this purpose is Dichondra grass followed by garden thyme. This summer I discovered everbearing strawberries work nicely as steppables also. This late into October, they are still vining and blooming!
