Thursday

which path?


Simple, honest, true. Love knows what love is. Unfussy, unadorned, unconditional. Materials: hessian, tightly-woven cottons and linens; ticking. Durable, hard-wearing, made to last. Scents of soaps, aromatic, deep, lingering.


Of the earth: rock, wood, amber. All things natural. Leather ties, straps, bootlaces. Bonds between us. Secure and steadfast. Materials: papers handmade and everyday; wrapping papers, brown papers, everyday purposeful. Leather, cotton ties.

 

 

Butterfly: catch the moments, consciously, as all things change. Materials: nets, organza, ribbon, lace. Papers transparent and fragile, durable and strong. Pockets, tucks, folds, as a butterfly wing.


Gold: discovery, seeking, finding. Many layers of papers, durable and strong. Hidden places, envelopes, secret holdings. Chains. securities.

Saved ephemera, kept here from the past for the future; papers distressed, fragile, rustling, crinkling. Materials cut, snipped, saved: vintage lace, emblems, tokens, charms, meanings made through touch and hold. Beads, buttons, salvage.


Flowers: all things of beauty come and go; marking transitions and temporary states, catching, holding. Contents: petals, fragments, snatches of days. Scents of rose, lavender, blossom.


Patterns, spirals, curls. Markers of journeys taken. Repeating knots, beads, rhythms of objects marking passage through time and place. Envelopes, letters home. Thumb-tags, places to pause, keys and memorabilia pockets as page markers.



 Silver. Sparkles, sequins, splashes of glistening lights. Glittering papers, strange moments of wonder. A journey through surprise. Materials sparkling, crinkling, bells, soundings. Papers transparent. Scents light, fresh.
