Wonderful paintings by Clare Grill. I especially like her Samplers.

Beautiful things via Renilde De Peuter.

Beautiful photographs of homes taken by Mieke Willems and shown via her site, mieke verbijlen. Objects kept on walls, light spaces defined by simple arrangements. Things kept and sorted. Order made and re-made. Keepsakes and artwork: the same business. Careful arrangements and thoughtful decisions, lived with.

Other nice images from Mieke's blog.

I just discovered this shop window filled with wonderful wood carved sculptures on my walk to the bus. I think it is a studio. I am very pleased to pass this each morning.

Photographs of my new home in Chicago. My little studio has beautiful light although I'm still finding it hard to make time to work on making. I have been drawing on this large drawing that's been staring at me for over two years. At times I want to fill it. Other days it seems best to cut it into smaller drawings and the rest of the time it think I should put it away all together.

Chicago is beautiful although the cold is quickly sneaking up on me. I wore my mittens the other day.
