A Seaside Fairy

 

DSC_0613

It was a beautiful sunrise and I found myself not wanting to leave even after the sun was up, So I found a rock climbed up and decided to sit for a while and drink my coffee. I spotted something out the corner of my eye in the sand and decided to take a little walk and check it out. Is that what I think it is?

I get closer and it flies off into the rocks. At this point I am pretty sure it’s a bird, but maybe not!

No it’s not a bird. Oh Wow! I can’t believe it. A Sea Fairy! I have heard of them, but never in a million years did I think I would see one. She was not young, but still very pretty. She looked so kind and wise. At this point I can not believe what I am seeing and trying to take in all the tiny details. I am wondering if she lives in the rocks. Maybe in that hole next to where she is standing.

I just can’t get over how interesting she looks. She is holding a starfish in one tiny little hand and a shell in the other. She sparkles like the beach as the waves hit the shoreline and the sun shines its rays on the wet sand making it look like glitter. She really does look like her surroundings! I try to get a little closer to see the details of her clothing. She is wearing lots of little trinkets she must have found that people lost while spending a day at the beach. I see a piece of sea glass. shells, pearls, and a seagull's feather wrapped with pearls. She is dripping with some kind of fibers at the bottom of her dress and attached to the fibers are shells and trinkets of some kind. I wish I could get a little closer. She is just so hard to see because she is so small. I am guessing maybe 4 or 5 inches in height. Her head is about the size of a penny. I think what I find to be so interesting is her little yellow wings.

I hope I get a chance to see another little Sea Fairy soon! If there is one there must be more hiding in those rocks!

Sea Goddess by Sea Gypsy

My need to get the studio in order is because there are Sea Goddesses to be made! I have five in the works at this moment and can not wait to see how they turn out.

Cleaning up a work table

My creative clutter is getting in the way of creating, so it's time to do a little more organizing! This is not the best pic. It was taken with my tablet, but most of the day was spent sorting through lots of stuff. It seems to be a never ending battle. It is great to have so many supplies when inspiration hits, but how to store it all is the question.

A Granny Square Throw Privacy Screen


I sent my DH out to buy some plastic chairs for a corner in the yard, I mentioned that I would like them to be turquoise, pink or mango orange. He came home with Gator orange chairs. Yes, he is a Gator fan and would really be happy if they had blue cushions, but that was not what I had planed. I kept looking at the chairs and thinking I needed to take them back, but on a trip to Walmart  I spotted the cushions you see and decided that would do the trick of softening the very orange chairs. Good enough for me, on to the next problem, I needed to plant some plants to give more privacy to the area and then the granny square throw popped into my head. It works for me and I love it! I will just keep working on my colorful little corner. The mask I found on the trash and still have one more to hang and guess what color that mask is, you guessed right, orange.

Trash-----No Way!

Can you believe I found this picture on the trash and just before the trash truck picked it up.DSC_0428Home

The reason I am sharing this picture is because my plan is to take it out of the frame take a picture of the picture and transfer to fabric and make a wall hanging. I love the soft colors!

The little sandpipers make me smile. I remember them from childhood. My Mom bought them. They are tiny treasures, now over 50 years old.

Watching Plants Grow

 

PicMonkey Collage

A couple of months ago I bought a little Key lime tree and planted it in a very large pot. My little lime is doing just fine and it is a thrill watching them grow. I have plans for these little limes. Yes, you guessed right, a key lime pie! Please little limes grow grow!

Home Sweet Home

I love to change things around me. This is a pic of my living room a few months ago. I am in the process of changing it again. I call this blog Sea Gypsy Studio, but the truth is that studio and home merge together for me. My studio is my home. I am currently working at my dining room table and it is a mess! But it’s how I roll (keeping up with the times)! I will be posting more often than I have been even if it is to share a pic of the day, a recipe, or just some little thing that happens here at home/studio. More tutorials in the works and sharing things on Pinterest (My favorite place to hang these days).
