sweetness


skrippy scraps.
that's what we call tiny pieces of things
that we can't quite put in the trash.
like snippets of origami paper, a flour bag,
beautiful flowers from magazines,
candy wrappers (that's the heart of gold),
canson paper scraps, photos of skirt fabric from catalogs...

now they have become HENRY LOVE!

little hearts, strung with button thread from
my grandmother's sewing caddy.

valentine's day is coming soon...

  5. How adorable! lucky Henry! I wonder if i hung one of those over where Gingy and Sylvie eat, if they'd feel nicer towards each other...
