  4. Your pendant and the jizo are an appropriate union of reminders to look within ourselves for the peace that can only be found there.

    I was sitting alone in the house when they came home and all was quiet...no TV..no radio...not a sound. Why was I sitting in the quiet? Listening to the glorious silence.

    I would honor both of these pieces.

  5. Ahhh, be still... its what's been happening. I'm hoping that with the eclipse, I will cycle into movement, but carry the stillness with me. Blessings to you.

  11. I am a first time visitor having popped over from a first time visit to Beads and Birds. I love both pieces - so much so that I was hoping to find something similar in the Etsy shop. :-) While there, I couldn't resist the "everyday love" pin though (love this too!).

  20. Thank you for the chance at this lovely give-away. Friedrich Nietzsche said that, 'The essence of all beautiful art, all great art, is gratitude.' The gratitude shows in your work.

  26. Fabulous! Please throw my name in the proverbial hat!

  27. I am often quiet here and read more than I comment. Your words leave me moved, contemplative, and more for what you share with them. If ever I were to try to prove reincarnation, I would share you as one who I know with an old soul who has surely traveled this earthly adventure before. Thank you for all that you share.
