Warning!

There's a crazy woman on the loose on the West Coast... Her name is Gayle Hajek, she has a cool blog called A Vintage Green Life and I am very proud to call her my friend...
A couple of weeks ago, she found some cool pods that looked like bats and she decided I needed some... So we agreed to have a kind of swap... She said she'd send a few pods along with "some" stuff... yeah "some"...shaking my head... little did I know that "some" in Gayle's world meant "loads of"... and to prove it... well look at the pictures below... and she even apologized for the "messy" packaging... sigh...




Some of the goodies already found their way to my "voodoo" necklace... I think the necklace should have another name... I like "voodoo" because it kinda creeps some people... but the more I think about it, the more I see it like some kind of shaman-memory necklace... each element has a meaning, a story to tell about my travels, my family and my friends (who are family to me)...


Gayle makes and collects memory jugs ( the very first ones I saw were on her blog even though I heard of them before) and I think this necklace is my wearable version of a memory jug...




THANK YOU GAYLE... for your friendship, your support and for having found me... And THANK YOU to all of my friends... It's hard for me to express my feelings but I want you to know that I love you to bits...

I too am so glad I found both of you and I love that the "voodoo" creeps people out, sorta like my "cracked in the head" baby head nightlights...I delight in hearing..."Ooooo, that creeps me out"...SWEET!!! I guess as artists of strange, we see things a little differently, it's what makes the world go "bump in the night"...LOL

Have a great time playing with your new toys!!!

LOL......It was great fun to pick thru my stash and try to decide which you would like and use. The "bat pod" looks perfect on the "voodoo" necklace........I think it might be too late to change the name, we have all grown to KNOW and LOVE it as that.

So fun "swapping" with you,
Big Hugs,
Gayle

Steph,
I love the idea of memory works...memory jugs, memory 'voodoo' necklaces, they gather the energies of these beloved objects.

MDR, c'est vrai que ces graines ressemblent à des chauves-souris! J'appelle les miennes "cornes du diable". Je ne sais même pas ce que c'est à vrai dire...
Et merci pour le partage toutes autant que vous êtes, je visite Vintage Green depuis quelques temps grâce à toi et suis restée bouche bée devant les memory jugs.
Bonne soirée
