This has been going on.

I marvel at these two colours aligned together.
I imagined others -

and today I found myself at the art shoppe, 
standing before a myriad of inks.

Eyes wide.

I've always gone for blue.

I thought it might be like writing in the sky,
or on the sea,

as though I'd seen myself floating
from above, 
and wanted to caption my image.

What would it say?

Present dwellings, perhaps?

a vision of mine from Bondi beach, colour infrared film, some years ago.

reclaimed dark brown leather,
teal-blue tea-stained paper,
Irish linen thread.

The Surfer

creating the blue pages...

Antique handmade lace...

Reclaimed embossed leather...

Dipping into the ocean...

Swimming in the sea...

Capturing thoughts & dreams...

The Wayfarer & Other Little Things

New books in process.

The journal maker & writer is stumped for words.

So photos will have to suffice, for now.


Some of these little things, too...

Forest Five

So September has rolled along, 
and to start off the spring, 
I thought I'd honour the growing greenery about,
 and create another tiny green leather library. 

I rummaged a good deal,
 and located some more of that vintage green leather 
that I have had for some time now -
it was once an old backpack.

Oh to find more! It's delicious.

Get it here:  Forest Five

For the love of tiny libraries...

It's been a long time, 
I have had this darling tiny antique leather pouch in my studio. 

I kept it mostly as inspiration -
 for when I spied it out of the corner of my eye,
 I was always compelled to pick it up, 
& inspiration to create would follow. 

These things seem to carry an energy that inspires, 
I like to have them around. 

Seeing it full of tiny books happened upon me by chance,
and once I had seen this in my head,
I had to make it.

So was born my second set of sextuplets.

Love these little guys.
