Right in my own backyard


I am ever grateful for where I dwell. My home is on a 2 acre plot of woods but also close to the beach in Delaware. It’s hard to say we own it because how can anyone really own trees, owls, a family of deer, foxes… and so much beauty. It is humbling and I am so grateful. Lately I’ve taken to making my way through the trees and looking for small gifts that are offered. Today I found a little shrine in a hollowed tree, the lovely sky and feathers, lots of feathers under the tree that I believe the owls live in. My heart felt so happy and light as I said thank you.


About turtlemoondesigns

Sky watcher, dreamer, seeker, stone hoarder.... Finding a love and growing passion for metalsmithing happened as a later in life discovery. I taught preschool for 23 years, but started doing metal work as a hobby about 13 years ago. All I can say is that I get lost and found in it. Three years ago I "retired" from teaching, I'm way too young for that! Now I follow my muse, and feel more filled up in my heart and soul than I could have ever imagined, but I do miss those sweet little faces too!! What a truly amazing thing this has become, my life! Please feel free to contact me with questions or for custom work.
