The curious things that happen

Market day in Turkey. 
Looking up through the light filled billowing canvas sails 
at the snow on the mountains beyond.

And breathe.

And then I met this pelican.
No, seriously.
He was almost as tall as me with the softest chalky pink feet

Box Number Two

The second box to be created.
It is made from an old sunglasses box and has been transformed 
using the remnants of a much loved but very sad copy of 
"The Senses, Instincts and Intelligence of Animals with Special Reference to Insects"
The Right Honourable Sir John Lubbock

I found the fantastic illustration of the jelly fish in the book and started to think 
about under the seaness.
The scientific name of a jellyfish being 'Medusa' 
I married the myth with the box.

Medusa could only be slain by looking in a mirror otherwise 
she would turn onlookers to stone.
The legend says that when Medusa was slain by Perseus, 
he laid her head on the shore and her blood
turned the seaweed to coral.

New New New

It's been so busy behind the hedge...I painted my bedroom after having a wall knocked down and new cupboards built for my clothes. And then I was able to hang my sari curtains from India. With enORmous thanks to Simon for drilling and meticulously arranging my curtain wires and to Mandi for the ruthless vision in the 'charity shop or keep it?' game. 

Me: "But I wear it for work"
Mandy: "What work? Cutting up bits of paper and daydreaming?"

Waking up to Spring... changes are underfoot.
