Goodbye to my Planter

I have heard that this is a bit of a phenomenon among those of us who sell our creations. Artists get attached to their work and feel separation anxiety once they know it is going to a new home. So it is with my planter. I have become quite attached to it and am a bit sad to see it go. I know that it will enjoy its new home where it can serve its function and have some new admirers but I still can't get over that little twinge of sadness. I am about to wrap it carefully with bubble wrap and peanuts and will say a little goodbye (inside my head of course). I can't imagine what a mother seeing her children go off into the world on their own must feel like! Maybe a little bowl of ice cream will get me through. And I will use a little ceramic bowl that I kept just for me!

I don't like parting from my pots either! This hanging looks great. Where did you get the fixing (rope and bead)?

I love Home Depot. They have hanging wire you can buy by the foot. I get my beads all over the city (and sometimes all over the country). I just buy interesting stuff and know that I will use it someday. You don't really want to see my basement though. Its packed with all sorts of stuff that might come in handy one day!
