Clicking around Etsy I found this votive of pearly teal flowers, handmade by Racquel's Mosaics. These votives are offered in different styles, and I think it's the candle glow shining through the raised surface of hand-cut stained glass that makes them look enchanting. Raquel's adventures in mosaics are blogged and she is also starting a website, featuring the most whimsical mosaic creations. 'Glad I clicked around Etsy today!
There's a snowstorm brewing here in New England. Quiet snow for quiet thinking. So I took a break away from the jeweler's bench and combined my photo of a window from an old nearby cathedral, which focuses on one very small piece of the whole. Then I added a well-known quote to ponder by Elisabeth Kübler-Ross. The words and the photo go nicely together.
