Sign of Spring
Smiles in (not quite) Spring
We spent a lovely afternoon at the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge on Plum Island. It was sunny and warm and you could hear the snow melting and the birds singing. Beautiful.

Wear Your Art
First: If you are in reasonable driving range of Salem, hasten yourself to their new World of Wearable Art exhibit sometime between now and June. Catherine and I went to the opening today and were blown away.
Second: Check out those earrings that Catherine made at an upcycling, wearable art workshop! They have wire hoops that hook around her ear, making them ideal for her non-pierced ears.
Third: I made the circles brooch for Catherine, using vinyl from previous exhibit signs and staples, but it was C who made it pop by adding the sliver of light blue behind it. I may try, but she’s the one with the eye for detail 🙂
I’m always a big fan of interesting museum exhibits and clever installations. I definitely love the ankle height mirrors below the cases in the Peabody Essex Museum’s exhibit, Shoes: Pleasure and Pain. The contrast between the very interesting shoes in the display and my own, fairly pedestrian, footwear is striking.
