a new collage
I used antique book plates and maps of Canada, an old typed recipe for blueberry jam, paint chips and washi tape.
Also paint, string and seeds from a box of stuff for Indian religious ceremonies (now the collage smells slightly of incense).

Today I drive to Burlington Vermont to settle my son Luke in his new house, which means filling my car with skateboards (including a stack of broken ones that will be wall decor) free weights, clothes and books, and tonight buying him and his roommates a good meal. Burlington is in the northwest corner of the state, near Canada, on Lake Champlain. Small, beautiful, clean and safe, it is the quintessential college town--low key, lots of good cheap food and indie stores. Actually, Burlington has more indie spirit than any town I've seen in decades. And tomorrow I get to visit the Shelburne Museum--folk art, quilts, a 3,500-piece miniature circus hand-carved from wood, the worlds largest museum collection of trivets... what more could a gal want?
