A Fabulous Friday Feeling

The sky has been doing a bit of this...

French Skies, August 2012
....which may well be my favourite kind of sky along with the kind of dark, pre-storm kind of a sky with strong sunlight which makes certain colours vibrantly sing as if they are lit from within.

I'm still a bit obsessed with the gummy, semi-translucent seaweed which keeps floating around me and distracting me from my 'lifeguard' duties.

Seaweed, collected for possible future use, August 2012
I scooped these specimens up and took them home to the Hybrid Handmade atelier for a closer inspection.  I think they may become incorporated into something once they dry out.

Elsewhere, this perviously made piece found a new home and set sail, off on adventures and voyages with its new owner.

You can read more about this piece here (design sketches and inspiration) and here.

And finally, if all of the above wasn't fabulous enough for your Friday, I fished this out of my polishing tank!  More on him next week though.
