"Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”

Wow, I'm loving this house in the new issue of Dwell. I don't know if I could live with that much exposure, especially in the city, but it's gorgeous! When was the last time you were impressed, or even noticed, a garage door...this one is amazing. And how about those porthole windows, set in glass! Read the whole article here. Thanks Dwell.

Before recycling my magazines I cut out all the images that catch my eye.
Then trim them and mount them on cardstock.
They make a great gift or it's just great to have cards on hand when you need them!
(I never sell these cards because of the copyright...just recycling!)

Bill Kerr and Weeks Ringle of the Modern Quilt Studio came to Bainbridge Island last night for a lecture at the art museum (where I happen to work...how convenient!). Fabulous talk, slide show and show + tell! A big thank you to Kathy at Pink Chalk Studios and Barbara at Esther's for bringing these international stars to our little island!
This one below was my favorite; "Fabric Fusion" is the pattern and you

Did anyone go to Sequim for the Lavender Festival this weekend? I had to miss it this year, but have my own little crop here. I brought some in and it has fragranced the whole house! I'm loving summertime.

What a summer we are having here in the Pacific Northwest. I'm pinching myself because it hasn't been this good in a long time. The garden is going a little crazy and since knee surgery on Wednesday I'm not able to do much, but watch it grow. There are worse things, I know. And I'm recovering quickly from the surgery. I have my follow-up appointment tomorrow and will start physical therapy this week. On the mend!

I witnessed the most beautiful sky on my walk with the doggie last night.
I'm having knee surgery today so that was my last evening walk for a little while.
It's just a meniscus repair and I'll be back at work by Monday,
but not 100% for a few weeks.
