note from Cherry Hill
Fetishes Can be Habit Forming !!
Cherry Hill ©
Paula suggested we add Native American hand carved stone animals to our website,
I immediately fell in love with the horses and picked out one to represent each
horse we have here at Long Tail Ranch.
once I had the herd established, I couldn't resist adding a few every so often
that were just too cute or powerful - just irresistible.
used specially selected fetishes to commemorate my dear horses that have left
this earth but are still alive in my heart - looking at a hand carved tiny statue
or carrying one in a pocket or pouch is healing.
also secreted a few away and put them on top of Richard's computer to see when
he would spot them...but soon we started running out of room so I curbed myself.....but
it was only a half halt...
then, a friend gave me a wonderful rabbit fetish knowing we live
on Rabbit Creek...
look what THAT has turned into.
as I type this WARNING to you, I also have to add, that the WARNING is in jest
because every day when I sit down to answer an Ask Cherry, work on a book, or
an article for our website, I see these cute little pals cheering me along.
love the diverse visions that each Zuni and Navajo artist has for various animal
shapes and also the variety of stones they choose to carve them from and adorn
Hooked on Native American
animal carvings !
