Up & Down

Hey, it's Friday!

Shari & I opened a new collection of photos at What Remains Inside today. The theme  : Up & Down.  We'll be adding a bit more next week too. (Just click the top thumbnail at the site and click through the images to view.)

Congrats to Stephanie who is featured seller at Etsy! Check out her interview, she has good advice to new artists/sellers.

This brown rice salad of Tara's looks springy good.

Oh, are you turning the lights off Saturday night?

Happy Weekend!

What Remains Inside sneak peek

Above is a sneak peek for What Remains Inside. Shari and I will reveal a new portfolio next week. We are grateful to Abby for her nice post today about our project, thanks Abby! Plus check out 15 Questions About Art with Shari here.

Today we've been getting a snow globe kind of snow. The snowflakes are swirling about like swarming gnats and the semi-sunniness makes the flakes sparkle like sequins. Which reminded me of my little sequin heart pin I made a few years ago. I decided to attach it to my favorite Mom-knitted hat today.

I made a new {to me} cookie over the weekend. They're so good with tea.

More soon,

What Remains Inside

As fast and furiously as life has been whirring and churning past lately there are happily still those wonderful things that are worth their sweet time.  Like the aroma of bread dough rising, a slow infused cup of tea, watching for the sun to peer from the clouds, or waiting for that roll of film to be developed.  
Over the past year Shari and I have been exchanging handwritten letters and poems with one another through the mail. And today we are happy to tell you about our new collaboration What Remains Inside which we consider to be a public extension of these musings.  Like in a cozy white-walled gallery we'll "hang" photos from time to time and whisper a few words on different thoughts.  The "shows" will grow and change quietly and organically.  We would love for you to visit and feel it is a place you can return to for a few moments of calm and refreshment.

Hey, look at that. The sun came out today after all!
