ragtags studio central: sarah's random this & that

random means "having no definite aim or purpose," (1655), taken from "at random" (1565), "at great speed" (thus, "carelessly, haphazardly"). In 1980s college student slang, it somehow, and sadly, acquired a distinct sense of "inferior, undesirable." (Online Etymology Dictionary, Douglas Harper) Well, okay, fine, Mr. Online Etymology Dictionary person, but THIS is the 21st Century. It's a whole new ball of wax.

"One silver ring..."

We traded names for holiday gift-giving this year. It was definitely low stress and look! This was exactly what I wanted, and was lucky enough to receive! Cindy, the silversmith behind the etsy shop at fallen leaf creek describes it as "A fresh ring made of slightly floral etched sterling silver, uneven edges and filed to intentionally give a sweet yet organic appeal. Centered are three sterling pods such as the seeds that await next season."
