a mini knitted me!

My very talented niece, Gretchen, made this mini-me...everyone was laughing when she was trying to show me that in the shoulder bag was a mini-journal (it's true I don't go anywhere without mine) and some knitting (yes, actual knitting on teeny-tiny knitting needles she made--and then knitted on!) --looks like I have started another little scarf... Anyway, this lovely whimsical handmade gift came at just the right time. It makes me smile to look at her. By the way, I do have green eyes, I do tend to dress in layers, with a hat, scarf and vest most of the year, I love funky socks, always carry at least one bag with me, journal, knitting and books... But--that is not my hair, though I wouldn't mind if it was!

beauty found me

Flipping around--
looking for something else
I happened on this page in my journal.
I like the combination of the John Lubbock quote with the labyrinth.

Beauty wasn't the point of page,
but beauty found me
as I contemplated
what exactly I was looking for today.

The Curious Nest

A new favorite place of inspiration. Looking for found objects? French antiques, religious medals, sheet music, and bobbles? How about local artists? The Curious Nest has it all--and very fun owners too.

I recommend a road trip to check them out:
The Curious Nest
2916 NE 55th St
Seattle, WA 98105

I picked up a few medals to use on my memory candles...and a few in another post.
