Glass has a magical way of capturing light and our hearts. This tiny mouse was created with Potomac-river-worn bits of battered bottles plus local clam and snail shells.


Imagine the stories this glass creature could tell of life before and after it found itself on a long and difficult river voyage to a rocky beach where, one by one, each piece caught the eye of a serious seeker of river glass.


What do you see in these welk shells from a North Carolina shore?   Please follow my blog adventures and share with friends!

Author, illustrator of "The Yarn Animal Book", probably the only craft book with instructions for making such unique yarn animals as an orangutan, an ant eater, a llama and a star-nosed mole and "The Single Minded Prince, a fairy tale for all ages about a boy and a pirate captain who both misbehave. The books and a booklet series based on each different yarn craft topic covered in "The Yarn Animal Book" (pompoms and other really easy yarn crafts, knitting, crocheting, rya, needlepoint and embroidery), are available on Amazon and Kindle.
