I was just cleaning and decluttering (sort of) my writing room, and I got a little snappy. Pictures ensue.
The corner with sometime nap-couch, also, the antique porch pillar from Indonesia that I am in love with:
Leroy and the leaning tower of books:
Devil girl guarding the door:
Mosaic table I made; filled with clutter:
Blank journals that have not yet found their raison d'etre, but surely will, some day:
A bit more "creative clutter":
And, close-up clutter! That ceramic says, "Create a life you love." Yes, do that.
Shells, plus a silver pomegranate Jim got me in honor of Blackbringer, and little faerie spoons:
The monkey on the left is about to be devoured:
Another door guardian, from Art & Soul.
I [heart] this room.
Below, hanging where I can see them, are two of the many pieces of art Jim did for Lips Touch that didn't make it into the book:
There was quite a process of deciding on just the right approach to the art for this book, and as a result, there are many incredible images that will never be seen. I'd still like to collect them in a little blurb book some day, perhaps along with the original (very short) versions of the Sunday Scribblings that later became the stories in the book. Plus, such an endeavor would feed my love of designing books, which I indulged for a solid week a year ago when putting together a Shutterfly book of our Chiapas trip.
Oh, look at this sunset from the other day:
