A little Bit About Me

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!

Welcome to Pink Saturday. Lets thank Beverly from How Sweet The Sound for making this all possible. Altho most of my post is not pink, there is one picture of pink glass for you to enjoy. I spent a day this past week at the Desert Botanical Garden enjoying and taking in the beauty of artist Dale Chihuly. His work was so beautiful, that I had to share a small part of it with you. I will also show you more next week as well. The above picture is the first piece you see when you enter the gardens. It's breathtaking and overwhelming as well. Please enjoy.

A close up, I can't imagine how this all gets packed up and shipped out.

This is the gorgeous green glass that you see when you drive into the parking lot.....needless to say, your mouth drops!

This hanging piece of artwork is mesmerizing, it's hard to take your eyes off of it, it's so gorgeous.

Beautiful hues of blues come together is a stunning vision of beauty.

Creamy white and almost alien looking, all the tops are thin and curly.

Shiny pink, thin at the base and bulbous at the top. This artwork is meant to represent the cactus is surrounds.

This view represents three separate pieces of artwork. One is the purple in the back, then there is the shiny pink and finally the silver and green. All handblown, all glass.

Now tell me, who wouldn't want a gorgeous boat load of orbs in their backyard??!! Everyone of them is hand blown and different from the rest. It's incredable.

I can't begin to imagine how many pieces of glass it takes to make something like this so beautiful. There just are no words to explain what seeing this work is like.

And last, but by no means least, is this glass artwork that is called "the moon," so beautiful. Watch next week for some more pictures of this amazing artist.....to be continued.

O.k. I am addicted. It all began like a huge storm, coming in fast and before I knew what had hit me, I was hooked. Just like that, without warning, I had to have them, make them, create them, one by one, and buy them. Yes, you heard me right, I not only make tags and sell them on my website http:someplaceinthyme.com but I also buy them from other sellers. I can appreciate the work of other sellers making the same items as I do, but also putting their own design and personality into what they make. The tags above were made using vintage dictionary paper and then layered with other paper and stamps. None are the same. Each one evolves with its own personality, just like the creator. If you haven't yet noticed tags, please keep your eyes peeled for these little treasures and all the work plus the art that goes into making them. Some sellers can get very creative with their stamps, and you can get lost in their beauty.
I can't imagine not loveing tags of all kinds. It does seem that when I create tags for sale, I tend to use a french theme and vintage papers......just too cool, I can't seem to help myself.
