there's a brand new addition to the [oldyarns. reclaimed linens.] shop.
in my thoughts for a while. inspired by making this for her.
the bowerbird garland. shared treasures from the bower.
each will be unique. each special in that way we collect reminders of our days. shells from the beach, pebbles from a stream, fallen leaves in autumn.
remember how Amelie picked up stones & put them in her pocket just before a big moment? just like that then.
this one strung with tiny paper boats - le petit bateau - in vintage french papers,
there are vintage linen buttons too,
& clouds sewn with vintage cotton lace to vintage french papers,
& thoughtful words, floating below the clouds -
"And inded there will be time
To wonder, Do I dare? and Do I dare?
Time to turn back and descend the stair." T. S. Elliot
collected, folded and threaded, ready for you to string in an open window.
so then pick it up, tuck it in your pocket. just like Amelie.
