Little things

Gothenburg, Sweden lends itself to little pictures. Everywhere I looked, there was some small, delightful thing. They even use children's book illustrations for their postage stamps! I could hardly believe it. It's like they knew I was coming and wanted to make sure I would not be disappointed.

I'm back!

I have returned from my excellent trips to Ireland and Sweden. Lots of walking, talking, looking, exploring, collecting, making, eating, drinking, and let's face it, shopping. It was wonderful to meet Camilla Engman and spend time making things in her studio with other like-minded women. I highly recommend Angela Ritchie's Ace Camps to you if you want to go on an adventure and explore a topic of interest and meet creative and fun people! I'll post more pictures over this week, but for now, here's one of the temporary collages I made with a cup I got at the flea market in Gothenburg, Sweden and a rock I found in on the beach in Strandhill, Ireland.
