From My Stash 6-10-09

Well this stash post is a bit on the late side, but it's still Wednesday here, so I think it counts. ;-) I was playing with Baby Anna and helping her grandma with a large quilt backing all day today.

Today's stash pieces are all turned by the same craftsman, Ernest Guhl, from St. Louis, Missouri. To my knowledge, he only sells at the St. Louis shows. I love his work and try to get a piece whenever I'm at the show.
These first two pieces are turned from some type of tree nut. I cannot recall which one though. The next time I see him I will ask.
I just love the look of these too. So exotic. :-)

This next piece is turned from acrylic.
I'm going to fill it with fruit and put it in the BD's kitchen.

This last piece you might recall seeing on a shelf in the trading post.
If I am remembering correctly, the wood is cherry. I could be quite wrong there. I do know that the decorative rim is filled with crushed turquoise. I fell in love with this one the moment I saw it.

There is one more thing...

A package arrived from Jayne at Tallulah~Belle yesterday containing the gorgeous daffodils I was lucky enough to win! I was still feeling unwell and didn't know they were here until FH brought the mail in after he got home. I credit the happy surprise as help in feeling better! Thank you, Jayne! :-)

However, the USB cord for the camera doesn't want to work anymore, so I can't upload the pictures I took to share. The stupid thing worked on Sunday! grrr... :-(

I'm hoping FH can figure out the problem.

That's all for this week. I need to get more pictures taken of my treasures! Of course I need the stupid camera cable to work too.... ;-)

Wonderful Turnings.. x

These are so cute!

My kitties really like the new house. They want out (especially Rascal who remembers "helping" me in the garden), but they have to wait a couple more weeks!

I know I need to update their blogs, but there just isn't enough time in the day. :)

Wow, those turnings are so beautiful. The tree nut might be Tagua, perhaps?

They're all such pretty pieces. Can hardly wait to see the bowl filled with fruit!

His work is amazing! I love seeing your stash too- it's like christmas morning almost:) I hate when electronic things don't work! Hope your cord is fixed soon and glad that you are feeling better.

Droool! I love miniature tuned vases. I purchased a couple vases at a show ages ago, and I have a vase that an e-friend turned. I really should add to my collection. I really like that turquoise one. I haven't seen anything quite like that before.

I have a little USB SD card reader, so the USB cord for my camera knows I can live without it. Therefore, it behaves. I hope your cord can be fixed/replaced soon!

Ooohhh beautiful...the turquoise one is stunning.

I have a few turned pots here but can't bring myself to use them.

Glad the daffs got there safe...if you need to at any time just steal my piccie.
