I have come to be inspired and well fed by the postings of mixed media collage artist Donna Watson. Some days ago she invited readers of her blog to visit the serenity of her home .
Peaceful surroundings are important to me and being able to glimpse the attention to detail and the grace of placement that she shares is for me a true healing balm.
My dear artist friend Che'usa has been renovating a cottage with a view of Mount Etna. She recently set up her sewing studio and singing bowl (here's a youtube of my friend Calby playing the bowls) room. Pictured is the silk duvet cover that Che'usa stitched up today inside her cozy little nest.

Che' introduced me to the work of Gail Rieke. I was most smitten by a glimpse inside her studio... here.
Naturally our artist homes are often sanctuary for our four legged friends as seen here at my pal Betsy' may enjoy her amazing vegan recipes too.


  1. Many thanks for your post and the most interesting links, please excuse my ignorance but what is a singing bowl?

  2. Hi Ian
    thanks for stopping and I meant to add a link for the bowls so I will do that.

  3. hello...thank you so much for the nice words about my blog and home. The connection to Gail Rieke and the others is especially wonderful. We all have a love for peace and tranquility.

  4. Thank you for you for visiting my blog. I can understand now why my piece "Sheltered View" resonated with you after seeing the lovely, peaceful room here. I loved the singing bowls!

  5. What a beautiful space and duvet cover. The colors are so rich. I bought a singing bowl this fall and use it occasionally for Yoga class.

  6. I like the idea of Bricolage - and her fabric is so beautiful!


Thanks for stopping '-)
