A Walk Around Lower Manhattan

I went on this stroll a month ago, on a perfect late September day.

Please admire the way they've fit the buildings together.

No idea what this is, there was not a sign in sight but isn't it cool?

The required dose of texture.

Not really how I had pictured the bull...

Wall Street is a good location for this store.

More Beach Goodness

We spent a few days last week in Martha's Vineyard, working hard. So--I finally have some new raw material to play with!

At one beach, I decided to make a collection of fishing net and ropes--pretty amazing, all the colors that exist.

I even salvaged the seams from a ratty life jacket that I found.

We cleaned up the beaches and brought home pieces of lobster trap, lots of interesting wood, a bit of shells and other flotsam and jetsam (just love saying that).

On our way back to the parking lot, we passed some fishermen who asked us if we had left anything on the beach. Good little scavengers...

This is wampum in its natural state. The tribes who still live in the area make their beautiful beads and jewelry from it. It's absolutely gorgeous when it's all polished up.

No Bicycles Please

Provincetown MA

I know I've been a bad blogger lately, running off without a word, but I promise you, there will be posts aplenty in the future. After a much needed ten days away, I’m ready to start afresh and show you some things I saw in the rainy Northeast, mainly New York City and Martha’s Vineyard. But that will be for another post, so please come back soon...
