mother of pearl


 



Buttons for my great grandmother and the most beautiful vintage linen I've ever had the pleasure to use in my books. This book is a postcard-sized coptic bound notebook with 84 pearl gray pages.

It's still too hot even though the heat wave is now gone. Despite the rain we had today the air is heavy, the moves are slow.

I empathise with the heavy air, drains the life out of you.

This series is the most wonderful thing you could do with the bits and pieces from our ancestors. You are an artist.
My word verification is 'weeing'!
