Where’s the step?

You’re looking to put your foot on the first step, to walk down unfamiliar stairs- suddenly you see lines and shadows and stop to take a quick photo of the intersecting shadows and edges.

Made it to the bottom in one piece but you can see the distraction of designs.

Columbus Skyline Captured by Jack

From the top floor of a hospital parking lot. Columbus, Ohio.  Jack (12) texted me his photograph from this vantage point. You know it pleases me when a grandchild sees something, takes a photograph and sends it to me. I told him he is honing his eye. He asked me, is that good?  Yes, it is.

Columbus Ohio Skyline

Found on my Doorstep

I didn’t hear the doorbell ring or the knocker on the front door but look what was left on my  doorstep.

I found a beautiful bouquet from my neighbor’s garden.

A sweet note attached to the glass milk bottle.

Thank you Marion. A lovely way to start this sad day of remembrance and memories.

Your flowers are absolutely gorgeous.

Chair Pad Adhesive Stuck on Wooden Seat

It’s better than it was.

The cushion’s no slip grip rubber came off and was glued to the wooden seat.

This is a chair we got about eight years ago in an antique store in Columbus. I brought it back to Pittsburgh and it’s looking much better now.

Not finished yet. 

Retro Macrame Pot Hanger Materials

This vintage book of directions for making Macrame Plant Hangers or rather Macrame Pot Hangers and this huge twine were in the donations my friend Donna gave to my art teacher friend Bob.

In the seventies, I never used such a thick rope but instead a thinner white cord and some wooden beads.

Macrame belts were holding up lots of bell bottom jeans when I was in college.

Do you or have you ever done macrame?
