Today is day seven of Anna Carson's Project Blue. I couldn't decide what to post so I'm doing a bunch of things from around my house.
The Blue Bird of Happiness. The bigger bird was a gift from someone I was engaged to - such a mistake - for a brief time in 1978. A friend gave me the little one just a few weeks ago. Maybe the blue bird of happiness is even happier now that she has a friend.
This little pitcher is something my parents brought back from a trip to Europe. I'm pretty sure they got it in Wales. My mother taped a lable to the bottom that says "LLESTR / LLATHRLIW COPR / TRADDODIADOL / CYMREIG . I like the surprise of the blue enamel inside.
I tried to get a picture of Angel playing with this little globe.... the world at her paws.... She considers it - along with just about everything else I own - to be hers. She was too fast for me, though, so I just photographed it this way.
This painting was painted by a wonderful artist named Don Madia. He lives on Greenwich Avenue in New York - or he did 8 years ago when I knew him. I met him at a singing class and ended up doing a lot of reiki for him. He paid me in artwork. This photo doesn't do the painting justice. I should probably have tried a few more times but ...
From the sublime to the ridiculous. Tara Grace won't use this claw scratcher but Angel is quite fond of it. She likes to play with the little mouse toy that hangs inside. I never used the catnip that came with it. She's not stoned in this picture, she's just goofy.
This is Maxwell Smith Bear. He's one of the bears I use for long-distance reiki, though I don't use him too much these days. He was handy to have along when I went out of the house. If somebody needed reiki I could just slip him out of my hand bag.... I named him Maxwell as a pun. It must not be a very good pun because I always have to explain it and people still don't think it's funny. Maxwell is a healer bear so his name is a pun for Makes well... I think it's funny. Smith is embroidered on his foot. Hence Maxwell Smith.
One of my pretty rocks. I should know what it's called but I can't think of it at the moment.
