I love how it's 10 degrees cooler in the shade and how the branches and leaves and light intersect to create interesting patterns. I found these feathers on the ground. The way their color goes from white to gray to blue reminds me of a blue ombre dress I once tried on. It was a very simple shape with beautiful color. I wish I could find some of that fabric now.
Lately, I have also been intrigued by clothes with different shapes and details like the clothes made by Renske Solkesz as shown on her blog. She spent a year making her own clothes, so I feel a little bond with her. Her clothes are interesting without being flashy. She talks about using 3 dimensional elements in her design, so I thought about her when I saw this piece of bark -
It looks like a sculpture to me. It comes from this tree whose bark is continually peeling off. I don't know if that is OK for the tree or not, but it is really pretty -
I have a few "normal" looking projects in the pipeline, but after that, I'll see if I can come up with something more creative...
