speaking of collaboration

over the holiday i received a mystery package. something unexpected.
something wonderfully unique and creative-a collaboration!

something blue

something that will go ever so perfectly with the wondering coat (and jeans-my fave)

something by helen!

something wow!

thank you helen! i couldn’t not share it- with your permission, of course! it really is a wonder to have my fabrics in the hands of such creative and artistic people.

i’ll end today’s post with a couple of quotes from Paul Soldner who passed away yesterday at 89.

“The most difficult thing to teach is curiosity. The next thing is the courage to do it.”

“We expose our work to fire. We’re comfortable with the unexpected results that fire is going to add. A painter would go right up the wall.”

Paul Soldner 1921~2011
thank you Paul Soldner-for living life as an artist in the best sense of the word and for teaching so many others through your example.

    “You can look at every problem you have in your life as an opportunity for some greater benefit. You can stay alert to opportunities by being grounded in the wisdom of uncertainty. When your preparedness meets opportunity, the solution will spontaneously appear. What comes out of that is often called “good luck.” Good luck is nothing but preparedness and opportunity coming together.”
    -Deepak Chopra
    yes, i am very lucky indeed!
