Hair wound around ...

I love things are that based on rituals, fashion or crafts of yore, made modern.... These lovely wearable pieces of art by melanie bilenker are based on the Victorian craft of using hair as mementos, emotional souvenirs, mourning. Instead of grand events, she chooses charming small everyday moments.... making them of course, something grand in return.

Crying over spilled...

The more I look at this, the more it touches me... Is it a heart ripped out ? A bird riddled with human maladies, stray beauty..elegantly rendered.

"What is it?" Doodle asked.

"It's a scarlet ibis," Daddy said.

Sadly, we all looked at the bird. How many miles had it traveled to die like this, in our yard, beneath the bleeding tree?

Doodle knelt beside the ibis. "I'm going to bury him."- j. Hurst.
