Mother Earth and the Soul

I'm a big time nature fan. I've spent the majority of my life in or near the forests, mountains and sea and these things will always be a part of my blood.

In the city, I'm a fish out of water. I find them disorienting and far too busy and whenever I visit the heart of any city, or even most towns, I'm instantly longing to return to the earthy places I find most comfortable. These forests, mountains, streams and beaches are where I find my peace.

This is surely why I was so attracted to today's shop.

Natures Art Melbourne has a lot of nature related items, my favorite of which is the one pictured in this post.

All of the pieces in Natures Art Melbourne are created from scratch. The shop is ran by a wonderful, earth loving artist named Martina and she cuts, polishes and sets nearly all of the stones she works with herself. She also works with gems, timber, shells and other raw found materials, making her living off the land itself with love and obvious enjoyment.

What a beautiful piece, I love it. I'm like you and am like a rabbit in headlights whenever I find mysef in a big city . . . it always makes my sister laugh who is so much more at home in amongst the hustle and bustle.
