I have had a long fling with felting and have gifted many bags.
The last one that remains here speaks to me and so I have hung onto it...
big enough to use as a tote
and sturdy due to it's many shrinkings
in hot water
(this produces the felted effect)
as a crow is attracted to shiny things
I am attracted to things of lustre and creamy nachre
antique mother of pearl
I buy these in antique shops and a tag sales whenever I see them at a good price
they make nice adornments for parcels gift wrapped with satin
and lovely accents sewn onto hand knit sweaters
they are so pretty
grey and pearls are such a happy couple when married
Pepper is sniffing around my morning photo shoot
she was drawn to the wool tote
and attempted to pull off a button!
(she does have good taste)
as you can see my love affair with pearls doesn't stop with strands and studs
it weaves it's way throughout my heart and home
beauty is in the details
What makes your heart beat a little faster...
is it an image of natural beauty
the face of a child
a wrinkled family elder
something luxe and unattainable
something as simple as a warm mug of tea
or someone holding your hand?
Hang onto what makes you happy and keep it close to your heart.
Hugs from the Hostess.
