On the boardwalk

Dear Friends,
It has been a lovely winter in Florida. A good quiet stretch of time by the ocean and just the kind of time the hermit part of me enjoys. But like many creatures, we are thinking about the next season and our migration back to North Carolina. I love this place on the boardwalk that leads from our home to the water. It is one of my favorite places to walk and sit, take in the ocean and the light and the sky.

A Rug Design

This is a photo of a rug based on the design I created for the end sheets for my book Baby Bear, Baby Bear, What Do You See? (written by my friend, Bill Martin Jr). It is in my home and I enjoy its colorful design on a daily basis. I am very pleased with how this small image was blown up to a large scale faithfully. The rug is a wool and silk hand-hooked rug and was made by Tibetan artisans. Perhaps one day I will become a rug designer!
