This afternoon I had a long conversation with my dear friend Evi, the dollmaker ....she is busy preparing for a show next month. Speaking with her reminded me of her amazing talents and attention to detail in all that she creates and in the decorating of her beautiful home... This collage consists of a few pictures taken in a guest bathroom in her home... (click images to enlarge)
The wonderful treasure found in those two cigar boxes a few weeks ago....I can't wait to find a few hours to sort through these fabulous rosaries and religious medals, clean and polish them and put them to use as embellishments in art projects and decorating.... What would you do with them?
A few more details and vignettes found in Evi's home... She is a master at finding unique antique treasure and then incorporating those finds into her elegant, eclectic European styled home... I can't wait to see the new dolls and other creations she will be exhibiting at the show! Hope your day tomorrow brings all good things!
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
