Buddha Terrarium

Buddha Terrarium
put together by
Journey Fish

This was so fun to make.  I made it from things I had around the house.  Brought them together and there we have it.  Even the potting soil was left over from another project.  The vase was from my Grandfather's funeral as I recall.  I don't remember where the tiny Buddha figure came from, but I've had it for years.  The doily is one I made years ago and colored a bit with coffee.  And now all those pieces have come together into one tiny project.  That makes me happy.

Two Left Feet

Two Left Feet
by

aka Journey Fish



This doll is made of an adult life size cloth doll leg.  I started the life size doll, but never finished.  So, I turned this leg into a doll.  I sewed a sort of flat, slightly raised leg onto her so she'd have two legs.  It took me quite some time before I noticed that she had two left legs.  I cracked up.  I don't even remember what her title was before, but now it is Two Left Legs.  A mistake, hey, what better way to add some comedy?  Silliness, but I enjoy this stuff.

This lovely fairy was made from doll parts I had laying around my doll making area for a long time.  I simply picked them up and made a fairy from them.  I then made her breasts by sculpting into the fabric.  Her wings are from my favorite silk jacket that was too worn out to wear.  So, fairy wings the jacket became!
I so want to get back into doll making.

Cut out of Birch cabinet wood as I recall.  Not sure.  Then painted.
This was done several years ago.

The Journey is the Reward
by
Janet C. Fish

This is over our bedroom doorway, has been there for years.  The faces in the picture above the doorway are supposed to be balloons.  I soon wished that I had put the Journey picture over the front door.  It made sense to me back then, because I used to take road trips.  But now I'm glad I did it where I did.  The rewarding Journey is our entire life span from conception to death.  

Spiritually, I believe we go on to a greater life, to a place of love.  Our journey through this material life, to me, is a grand lesson.
