Found Object du Jour
Another beach walk yesterday with some cool small things that have some pack rat appeal, at least to me: A shell, perhaps just the lining, all nacre, a whelk that has been broken to show its spiral staircase inside, all tumbled white; the tip of another whelk with a pretty nova striped pattern, a barnacle with a plume of kelp; a bit of aluminum with chipped paint in black and red, with mysterious encrustations, sea glass and a bit of charcoal tumbled into a pretty, flat oval.
These treasures may seem ordinary, but I follow a design discipline that disposes of that notion. Nothing is ordinary if you open your mind, eyes and heart!
