so after a brief moment of reflection, i went out and cut a beautiful hydrangea, placed it in the vase, and photographed it. it's a tiny tribute to a wonderful shop that i dearly miss. isn't this lovely?
so clever. a piece of old tin, some wire around a pretty bottle, and there you have it.
and then i returned to my studio, and placed it in its usual spot, hanging from my old fashioned pencil sharpener. which i love, also.
i miss you, junk drawer! you were packed full of lovely things, reasonably priced, and you always smelled good. it was the handmade soy candles with names and scents that evoked endless memories. *sigh* i think i'll go light my "santa's whiskers" candle and mope around for a while...
