looks like a look of people have taken to making little bundles. your's look so precious. somehow the landscape seems to be in sympathy with making little bundles. my hands and especially the nails look like i've been scratching in the mud but it is really just a bunch of my little bundles that i've been holding too. gentle sound outside and gentle soul inside.

h, well, the bundles had been in pickle juice for for mmm...three or so weeks, and the day was so gorgeous that i celebrated outside and in!

I love taking a walk with you and seeing the world through your eyes - and enjoying the snow without driving in it.

Velma said...

jean, driving is ok-i have an outback subaru with heavy duty snow tires. it's the best i can do besides reindeer.

Maggie Neale said...

Wonderful silk bundle unbound! Your eye on the snow is lovely too. Texture abounds!

Velma said...

maggie, texture, textile, text... i love these words. do you come this way (canton area) ever?

Barry said...

V- thanks for sharing the fragments of your day. Love the ice on the grapes; sun on your shed; and a bundle of tied cloth. Go well. B

Velma said...

thanks, barry, this place is beautiful, even if my day IS fragmented!
