The Minsk

While trolling around on the internet, my husband Greg discovered this illustration by UK artist Dale Bowers, which is inspired by one of Greg's poems "The Minsk". It is so cool! It is amazing that through the internet artists across the ocean can connect and be inspired in ways that used to be almost impossible. Love it!

I have always wanted to do some kind of companion piece or series of photos inspired by my husband's poems, but haven't yet. I am glad that someone has because they are ripe with images. If you want to read more of my husband's poems, you can read his blog or his book, I Thought I Was New Here.

I just had to share this gorgeous clutch that my very talented cousin made me. He is an excellent knitter and the proud owner of a "Real Men Knit" bumper sticker. He made this felted clutch on his own and worked up a pattern for it that I believe you can find at Knit or Dye in Brattleboro, Vermont. A great shop if you are in the area or want to shop online.

I love the organic lines and square button clasp. Thanks B!
