Here are some close ups of the screen printed curtains I made. I found the white canvas curtains at Goodwill. They were all different sizes, but in great shape. It was easy to screen print on the fabric, just took a little more elbow grease.

I was trying to make a hanging lamp for my room. For as much as I love this kooky little house, it comes with very few heating vents and even fewer electrical outlets. The hanging portion of the project DID NOT WORK out. But not for lack of trying, that's for sure.

I had the privilege of spending Saint Valentine's Day with some seven year old lovelies. They were exchanging sweet Valentine notes written in their newly learned writing. So sweet. There is something about seven year olds. They aren't quite babies, they are rough and tumbly, but they still smell like strawberries and have tender little hearts.

Out of the Rolling Ocean the Crowd
by Walt Whitman
Out of the rolling ocean the crowd came a drop gently to me,
Whispering I love you, before long I die,
I have travel'd a long way merely to look on you to touch you,
For I could not die till I once look'd on you,
For I fear'd I might afterward lose you.
Return in peace to the ocean my love,
I too am part of that ocean my love, we are not so much separated,
Behold the great rondure, the cohesion of all, how perfect!
But as for me, for you, the irresistible sea is to separate us,
As for an hour carrying us diverse, yet cannot carry us diverse forever;
Be not impatient--a little space--know you I salute the air, the
ocean and the land,
Every day at sundown for your dear sake my love.

Everything is shifting, even in the corners of the house. Sad winter plants are perking up at the least bit of sun's rays. The creamer holds Creeping Thyme that has over-wintered quite nicely. Woke to fog, but hope the sun makes an appearance.
