I made another whimsy doorknob piece with wings. the little girl in the photo is my mom. it reads, ” i believe in soaring high, like a spirit in the wind, towards the beauty in my life.”
they said it was going to snow in the city today, but it didn’t. i woke up this morning, and quickly looked outside my bedroom window in hopes of seeing white everywhere, but there were only raindrops and puddles. it reminded me of the times when i was a little girl and i’d go visit my grandma in new jersey at christmastime..i would look out the window each morning with hopes of seeing the snow. i remember one specific time there was a little snow on the ground and i went bizerk with excitement. i was seven, i think.
john and i had the day off together. besides venturing out for lunch with our friend lisa, we stayed in all day and worked on some art projects. side by side at the work table, we got creative, with the christmas tunes playing in the background. john made the most whimsical, fun piece out old recycled materials. i really want to post a picture of it, but it’s gonna be a gift and i can’t spoil the fun.
