the series britain in pictures was published in 1941 and was done to boost morale and ensure certain aspects of life were preserved, read here for more information ...I love the design and colours of them and the information within is so interestingly presented.I have a few more but on saturday was delighted to add the music halls and fair book and english women by edith sitwell.
dear tom thumb from the book below
notice my favourite new broach that I got in Dublin last week in a lovely vintage shop called om diva ,it is enamelled metal and I LOVE swallows
with the girls back at school now and the market over for a while I feel it maybe soon time enough to make some new work.
I am of course looking forward to the opening of my part in the group show songs and questions tonight but I am really feeling the need to go into my work in some other way ....deeper , simpler ,not sure yet but it has led me to where I am now and now I feel I want to go on .
I search endlessly for clues and I see them in my imediate vicinity , last week the beautiful rainbow, my magical day on my own in Dublin where I added to my book collection and visited the suberb douglas hyde gallery to catch the last day of the jockum nordström show.
I am cycling again as the roads thaw and the energy this stirs up of good feelings is a song to me .
I want to thank again all of you who have encouraged my work and let you know that when I feel directionless I can always remember that you are there.in my everyday life , my virtual life and in my imagined life which to me have always been one in the same ;)
oh by the way ....
so so glad that dear ritva is blogging again
such beauty within her blog lumetta
