spotted succulent...

spotted succulent, just added to the shop...

{cotton, recycled linen, wire armature, wool stuffing, vintage pottery}

i knew when i found this piece of vintage tribal print pottery in an antique shop last month, that i'd have to wait patiently for just the right textiles... and then i came across this perfect shade of spotted cotton (a color somewhere between navy and teal and gray and green), which happened to pair perfectly with another blue recycled linen that i had.  after that, i just had to convince myself that i could part with this one!

living room...

the forever evolving state of my home.
after moving all of the furniture around in the living room, i was left with a giant blank wall on one side... a drop cloth, a bit of paint, and the words of e.e. cummings helped fill the void.  an under $20 project... which makes it easy to replace with another, when the mood strikes.  several ideas are already floating about it my head; but, for now, reading this every morning over my cup of coffee is proving to be a lovely way to start the day.  here is the full poem...

"i will wade out
                        till my thighs are steeped in burning flowers
I will take the sun in my mouth
and leap into the ripe air
                                                 with closed eyes
to dash against darkness
                                       in the sleeping curves of my body
Shall enter fingers of smooth mastery
with chasteness of sea-girls
                                            Will i complete the mystery
                                            of my flesh
I will rise
               After a thousand years
             And set my teeth in the silver of the moon"  - e.e. cummings

now i'm on the lookout for a big rug and a few more splashes of bright color to balance the gray, black, and white tones.

'My Wilderness':

Cursed and run from town to town
His shadow stays like a dog heel down
Through the smoke and through the flames
From the highest mountains to the lowest plain
Redemption brings the final cost
He's the walking ghost of your lover lost

There are always people who
Need someone and now it's you

Here was sorrow and here was I
Here was anger and here was my
Wilderness where I'd remain
Emptiness forever retain
So count with me the battle scars
They're our memories behind the bars

Sister sister tell me it's true
Do you need someone like I want you

There are always people who
Need someone and now it's you
Sister sister tell me it's true
Do you need someone like I want you


happy tuesday

The Indian Girl Who Made Them

These, the Wings of the Morning, 
An Indian Maiden wove, 
Intertwining subtilely 
Wands from a willow grove 
Beside the Sangamon — 
Rude stream of Dreamland Town. 
She bound them to my shoulders 
With fingers golden-brown. 
The wings were part of me; 
The willow-wands were hot. 
Pulses from my heart 
Healed each bruise and spot 
Of the morning-glory buds, 
Beginning to unfold 
Beneath her burning song of suns untold.
