It's been so long since I've had time for my blog since being in Santa Fe - I've been touring the countryside and having a great time blacksmithing. This stuff is certainly labor intensive. May be too much for an old gal like me, but I'll walk away with a new found appreciation for the time and energy it takes to be a blacksmith and a few tricks I can use at home. Here's a couple of beautiful arroyo junkers I've seen on my travels ~ more to come later.

Well this will be interesting ~ I'll be away from home until June 1st. Hubby and I in 26 years have never been apart more than a week! Here are just some pics of the road to Mom's and some of her neighbors that we visit. Many a film has been made on the road to her house ~ the most recent was Crazy Heart with Jeff Bridges, in fact I couldn't leave one day cuz they were filming the accident he had in his truck (if you saw the Movie). It's a popular spot since there is only beautiful landscape - no telephone lines, no cars, no houses, just beauty.
Now that's a BELL!

This weekend I saw an Ocotillo in the neighborhood and thought "Hey, why don't I have one!". So I got busy and created my own - it's about 8 ft tall. Only difference is mine requires no water or maintenance. I'll be adding a hummingbird, but since I'm headed to Santa Fe for a month on Thurs I won't be able to finish it. I'll be busy there learning and creating some new stuff. My blog may suffer because of it.... but I shall return with a new found knowledge of blacksmithing.
