Fire, Sky, Ocean, and Fertility goddesses

Monday, April 27, 2009

(Looking for the Ocean Goddess? see here)

The day is unusually warm, at 90°. Just the day before yesterday I was shivering under the covers because it was so chilly in the apartment.

The onset of summer shows itself well before actually beginning. The true Spring has been laden with rain and grey skies. Hopefully this heat will pass and let some sunny spring days fill the sky.

I've been working on some stump dolls. One is Fire (or Embers), the others are Ocean and Sky. Here are some pics of them....

Also, I just started a Fertility Goddess, on a board. I don't know what prompted me to do this, but things develop that way. It's Spring, and fertility seems apropos of the season.

The temperture hit 93°F this afternoon!
I've worked on a vision board. I'm happy with it so far. It takes some time to find pictures/symbols to use on the board, so it's sort of a work in progress. Pics in the future, maybe.


  1. They're lovely, Myth. I especially like Fire. She looks so mischevious!

    Hope the unusual heat subsides for you and you get those nice spring days soon.

  2. Thanks, leek. Another heatwave here today, with temps going to, or surpassing 90. But look who I'm talking to! I don't know how you take those Florida summers!

  6. I Love the fertility goddess! She is perfect for spring! BTW - only 47 in Ohio today.

  7. Thanks Melissa! I'll trade you my 90 for your 47!

  8. Oh, wow! Such incredible dolls! I really love Fire, with those dramatic colors. Excellent work. And congratulations on the Renee Award. I am so happy that you've received it. You have a fascinating and diverse blog, and I enjoyed my visit here tremendously. Have a wonderful day. Hope it's a little cooler today.

  9. You are welcome Barbara.
    Same here:)
    By the way, have you visited Malaysia before?
    I have just posted a sharing with lots of fun images of the place.
    I am sure you will enjoy it as much as I enjoy writing it.

    I have never been to New York and other states of US.
    I used to dream to study here when my ex-boyfriend depart Malaysia for US.....

    I would love to visit so many wonderful places which include New York.
    It's a great big metropoitan city with many great opportunities!
    I guess I will make it possible if I start planning now and start a business and earn enough.....

    Love & hugs,
    Yoon See
