Recently I was contacted by the organizers
of Chicago’s lovely
Randolph Street Market
(quality vintage finds in a chic setting)
to explore this year’s winter theme which is
Passions & Vanities.
It’s true I’m a simple girl with a passion
for simple things, but they aren’t small things…
Not just my own.
I worked with kids for a decade as an academic tutor
and before that I taught preschool and cared for infants.
Children (and dogs!) are the best teachers ever.
Whether it’s a card, a fuzzy wool sweater, or jewelry.
Of encouragement, of faith, of humor, of truth.
Beauty in the everyday.
When you actively seek it out, it’s surprising
how much you can collect.
Okay, I know we’re getting out of passion territory
now, but fresh white sheets and and duvets
are a little of heaven on earth for me.
*Cue Carly Simon*
Little touches of sparkle and
shine (even if it’s simply lip gloss!)
are a mini celebration of woman-ness.
The most important passion of all because with it:
we find wings to fly us over rough patches.
We find meaning in every corner of the universe.
We can get over ourselves in order to see…
my panel, my photo
that which is truly lovely.
Be sure to bring your passions, vanities,
and cash to the Randolph Street Market
February 4-5, 2012!
Feelin saucy enough to share your own passions & vanities?
Peace to you right where you are.
