My jewelry piece of the week is this simple and artistic silver wire wrapped pendant featuring a black and white image of one of Tennessee’s native wildflowers as it ends it’s growing season. Queen Anne’s Lace dots our highways and backroads with a lovely white carpet. The image is resized and cast in resin for a durable, waterproof and shiny presentation. The pendant comes on a sterling chain.

Such sadness fell over my house a week ago last Friday as my best friend, Bear departed the world for a life of no pain, fields of flowers and rainbows. Bear and I shared a fabulous life together for 15 years. He was a sweet soul who loved everyone and every dog and even every cat. The afternoon before he went on his journey a beautiful storm came through complete with gorgeous colors and a rainbow. How appropriate for my sweet friend. I will miss you Mr. Bear and you will forever be in my heart. With love, Mom.

Never fear a freezing cold morning in early March for spring is just around the corner. Tornados rolled in on Friday, snow was predicted on Monday morning. The daffodils and saucer magnolias are out and the sun is re positioning. Sunday morning brings the time change.
This past weekend was the season two taping for the Bluegrass Underground PBS series. To get an idea of what all it takes to produce this series 333 below ground in the Volcano Room of Cumberland Caverns watch this video by Craig Havighurst. This was shot during one of the days of the first season filming. This year it was bigger and better, more lights, more crew, more cameras, a production trailer, a green room, I could keep going… wow!! Three days of incredible talent. Twelve bands, four a day, the first night time performances. Two big headliners: The Civil Wars and Vince Gill. Lots of people. Lots of walking from here to there to shoot. Can’t wait to see what happens for the next season. Thank you Todd Mayo for giving me the opportunity to photograph these historic music moments!
