Philios (Friend Love)
So I can sit on my a** and philosophize all I want about what inspires, but I just need to get off said a** and clean up my room. (My mom would so approve.)
And I love my friends because they are producing glorious art in their not-always-inspiring spaces. Check out:
:: Lisa's birch heart necklaces and felted brooches, inspired by and distilling the essence of the natural world.
:: Jackie's papercutting composition, a balance of solid home and ethereal vapor.
:: Joanie's textiles, which bring together vintage treasures with careful, loving stitches. (And her organization tips as she has been diligently organizing her craft space. You're my hero, Joanie!)
:: Nanou's cards, with their palette and grace straight out of a French paperie, and her Critters that she has brought back from the forest to play with us.
:: Margie's crocheted pieces, which stop me in their tracks when I see them--the natural world encased so lovingly in delicate, lace stitches.
:: Sonia's pincushions, which combine vintage textiles and fabric patterns that make me feel very cozy indeed.
And, from the warm kitchen:
:: Natalie's winter comfort food, which makes me salivate as I am reading her recipes.
I could list so many more, but I will stop here and get off my a**, as promised, and tackle that space so that I can make Valentine's with my kids. Oh, happy Saturday!
