I recently ordered a subscription
to the British magazine Selvedge.
To me, most magazines are disposable,
pretty to look at and mildly interesting
for a short while.
This magazine is quite wonderful,
full of beautiful photographs,
and all bound and printed on lovely, thick paper.
It's quite pricey in the States,
but it left me so inspired,
I had to get it.
When I find truly well made, artistic work,
it feels so good to support it.

February 18, 2011
a long week,
less than wonderful
bits of news.
Time at the studio
sometimes feels like work,
but this week,
it has been a point of light.
Happy Friday to you.

Building A Winter Garden:
"Experience starts the moment you start to like gardening. You can’t do it right the first time. You can’t even do it right in a few years. You always see the next step you have to do. Start simply, putting good combinations of plants together, and work from there. You have to go through all the steps. You cannot skip any lessons. That is honest. It’s hard work. But you get something back, that’s the good thing. It’s like raising children. You try to do your best."
