A little Bit About Me

My photo

Someplace in Thyme

I have been creating since I was a little girl. I am happy to say that having my own website has opened up a whole new world for me. Trying new mediums is a joy and sometimes a real eye opener. I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at cpeterson72@q.com. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

I wanted to share the rest of my Desert Botanical Pictures with you when I went to see the art work of Dale Chihuly. Please enjoy, and thankyou to Beverly from How Sweet The Sound for another fantastic Pink Saturday. Be sure to visit all the participants and leave a comment for them on their blogs.
Can you find the right words to describe this?

Like watching the sun set....maybe even better.
Blends right in with the floral

Oh baby, what beautiful lines you have!
More round blown glass to look like balloons, what a party we could have with these, right?
Wouldn't you love to have this hanging somewhere in your home?

Looks like balloons, but it's all hand blown glass balls.
Just takes your breath away, I could stand and look at this all day.

Beautiful lines and waves of glass, look, it's pink!!! I hope you didn't think I would let you down now, did you??!!

I can't imagine how one begins to blow glass into shapes like this!

You can't tell by the pictures, but there is texture in the color of the glass at the top, this ranges from yellow, orange to red.

I thought these looked like fire with the red and orange. Sorry, no pink, but you just have to enjoy the lines.....
The shapes of the glass blend in with the shapes of the plants they surround.

Don't you just love this color?
What a beauty, there just are no words to describe this glass. If I remember correctly, this gorgeous lavender color was showcased all around the organ pipe cactus.

What would you call this piece?
And now I will leave you with this amazing piece!

This really is amazing! The Pink ones are great! I like when there are not the expected pinks on Pink Saturday. It feels like you were thinking about it a bit more than me! hehe
Happy Pink Saturday!
Hugs, Lisa

Dale Chihuly's Art is Amazing. I would love to have one of his chandeliers, however, aside from the monsterous expense I would have to built-on to house it!! LOL!!
Hey, a girl can dream!!
Have a Great Weekend!

The one you shared the last time I was really amazed. And I guess the amazement continues!. This really gives anew way of looking on a cactus garden. The artworks are just so intricate. How I wish I can see it in person and just stare and stare at these beauties.

Happy PS!

Wow! Wow and Wow! Those are just amazing. I love the yellow sculpture that looks like a bunch of balloons. They're just amazing!

I just adore Chihulys glass art. I first heard of him when and old bf took me on trip up to the northwest to see his folks. We went to the museum in Seattle. He loved Chihulys works and thought I might. He was right. Oh how I wish I could own a piece!

Happy Pink Saturday. I am so glad that you posted more of these pictures. Don't know if you noticed, but I linked you in a post and sent my readers over to see these pics. Some of them are quite alien in the garden and some are just gorgeous. Thank you for this.

g said...

I love Chihuly glass, but its even more awesome in a garden. That is fantastic. I read your post below, too. Now you've got me googling for the Desert Botanical Garden!! Maybe I'll visit too!

Have a great weekend and a wonderful Pink Saturday!

Char thanks for sharing this amazing art. It's beautiful and blends right in with the desert landscape. It also looks like it could blend with the natural coral at the bottom of the ocean.


Lara said...

one could be superb - and then, they would look grat in our garden, too :)

sweetmemorymakingmom said...

Happy Pink Saturday Char! Wow! Those are unique and unusual pieces! They must have been neat to see in person. I like the green ones that look like worms/bugs burrowing in the ground and I like the tall skinny blue ones! Very Cool. I would put a few of those in my garden for interest! pink hugs, ellen

My Artful Heart said...

Georgous glass art! Our local conservatory had an exhibit that featured Chihuly's glassworks....very creative (one of a kind)pieces, for sure. Thanks for sharing and have a great pink week :)


I love Chihuly, don't you? A couple of years ago, our fine arts center had an exhibit of his stuff and it was GREAT! We are lucky to have a couple of his chandliers in the fine arts center permanently as well. Happy belated Pink Saturday.


Susie Jefferson said...

Hi Char

These are quite incredible! Tnanks for showing us all these pix.

Happy Pink Saturday (finally). I had hayfever which has turned into sinus, so due to headaches I haven't been online since Friday! I do apologise for being so late (and I somehow don't think I'll be doing much visiting this week)

Robin said...

Lovely glass....
Thank you for sharing your trip photos and these of the Chihuly exhibit.

Hope you had a beautiful day.

Margie said...

Wow, that was totally different! The colors are amazing, I especially like the *pink*, the greens, and the lavender, ooohh, that lavender was spectacular!

Have a lovely week!
Margie :)
