ghosts in nests, the fox & dolphin searching

this is one of my favorite nests. it has a little porcelain doll inside,
an owl talon, quartz crystals, and a wee bird from my grandma.

itty mittens. never even got bought. well... til me i guess.

the ladies' field club of york. by j morgan puett. all printed into frames.
i absolutely couldnt fathom not printing these. they are deeply inspired.

all things will face you. eye to eye. just like the little fox in my garden this morning that looked me right in the face before he climbed into my shed like he owned the place. i tried desperately to photograph him to no avail as he was too quick. and he looked SO well. his coat so red. his eyes so bright... but cunning and plucky! to waltz into my shed! we must have left the door open accidentally the other day. you know hes still in there too that cheeky little cur. probably painting the place.

you will always see what you look for. its best to look for dolphins.
even when you are in the middle of a lake. it will keep you hopeful.

we have been playing a few shows with heidi spencer around london. she is a dear friend of mine and a fantastic singer. i have been on the lap steel guitar! id never played it before but we had one in the shed so we got it out. (thats when we left the door open) luckily for mr. fox im pretty good on the lap steel or he wouldnt have free rent ♥

Wow once again, these photos are beautiful! I love all your little trinkets, especially those mittens, how sweet! I just looked at the link you put for the Ladies Field Club, they're fantastic, hah, i saved the one of Miss Amelia West immediately :)
And the fox sounds like he is just how a fox should be ;) i hope we see a photo soon.
Wish i could come see one of your shows!

I have new respect for dolphins lately.

I went to a flea market this past weekend and I found old photos. Now I wish I would have bought some. I think random babies on my wall is a good idea.

I heard this song and really thought about Snow Bird:' "The Call" by Regina Spektor.

Your home is like a lovely Victorian curiosty shop with magic in every corner of every room.
You should visit the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford some time. They have some amazing exhibits that I think you would like. ;-)
I'm visiting Oxford soon to see a Pre-Raphaelite painting exhibition at the Ashmolean Museum. I can't wait!
Anyway, I would love to see the little fox that lives in your shed. I'm very fond of foxes.
It is a good thing to look into a foxes eyes and make a wish!
Hope you are well. :-)
