This afternoon, while making King Ranch Chicken, my eye was caught by what I saw the second time I looked.
In taking a closer look, I was reminded of something important about the things I love that are in my home.
This white ceramic charger is a favorite, but it is the edging that really makes me smile.
I noticed that again when I looked closer.
On the same dining table , this iron pedestal tray holding my Spode bread box, is another favorite.
I began to look closer.
And so I made a little vuelta (round) around my house,
taking a second look,
looking a little closer,
and thinking about the process and the method and how looking at something all at once doesn’t always
the process in creating it.
Things are rarely what they seem.
This sculpture-to my eye- is about pulling pink tights on 3 little girls with chubby legs and brushing out tangles and putting giant bows in their hair, to take them to dancing lessons at Melba’s, year after year.
My milk glass collection has a story too long to tell, but it is its carved detail that tells the real story.
As does the cutwork on an old headboard in the guest room, or the fretwork in a mantel piece, or the simplicity of a spray painted basket.
I am linking to White Wednesday. Thank you Kathleen.
