Folkloric charm

Made from cape wool remnants, a bag I made for myself for everyday winter-wear. Antique buttons adorning the strap were gifted to me by my friend Jen's mother - happy to have found the perfect use for them:)

The Speed Museum

Cave Hill Cemetery, Louisville, KY
Back home after a weekend away, spent with like-minded souls. Harry Potter, perfect autumn weather, art & architecture, rose tea in Rossetti cups, cats. Lovely things to soothe and inspire! 

From yesterday's trip to the Speed Museum. Interactive Book of Hours.

The Best Therapy

I've often thought that if we could somehow bottle and distribute the total euphoria and calm that comes from watching cats napping in sunlight, the world would be a much better place. Behold my bliss!
