Monday, December 4

what there is

[Saturday flea market: lacy, embroidered handkerchiefs, antique dress collars, handmade lace, real dotted swiss, a man's silk handkerchief embroidered 'Josef']

[A tablecloth embroidered with wildflowers and wheat]

[A peaceful evening in my clean apartment, with candles all lit and laundry hung to dry over the heater, dishes done and put away, letters written, and a piece of cardboard to paint and draw on, Jolie Holland in the background singing "The Littlest Birds," which, if you do not know it, you should look up, especially Lisa and Stephanie, seeing as how you have some littlest birds in your lives]

Thank you for your orders--I was really touched. On the way to visit my friend in another town on Friday night, I was harassed on the train. Coming home, Saturday, I still had some of that uneasiness with me. It shook me out of my 'brown study' to understand how much you like my things (enough to pay! for them. wow!!) It is so kind and so complimentary.

I hope there is something beautiful for you, wherever you are, and the people you love are happy and safe.

The photograhs are lovely. I was given a bushel of embroidered handkerchiefs by my aunt but am completely blocked as to what to do with them (wouldn't dare blow my nose on them, that's for sure.)
