View From My Studio, Spring 2011
My friend Rochel Parker, a classical Feng shui master, helped me install this new fountain. It was such a gift!
I had another fountain in the same spot, but it leaked endlessly. Nothing I did could make the leak stop.
So Rochel and I replaced the fountain ourselves. I felt like we were such strong women! We dug out the old fountain and somehow Rochel knew how to get the motor going. I planted yellow, purpled and lavender pansies around the fountain. When the azaleas bloomed, I felt that I was in heaven.
The angel in the far left corner was a gift from a client. I helped her recover from a nervous breakdown.
The bench to the right was a gift from the Atlanta Pet Rescue. Whenever I make jewelry, if anyone ever buys it, I give them a choice of donating the profits to either the Pet Rescue or the Atlanta Community Food Bank.
I take a glance at the view from my studio and it heals my soul!
