I hereby declare this fashionable / Härmed bestämmer jag att detta är mode

There is a new shop in Härnösand. Craft supplies, dress-up clothes and so forth. A nice place, but what made me go "aaaaaaaaw" was a collection of small, hand-sewn aprons at a mere $3,50 each. They had been bought at an auction. Someone lovingly made these aprons; look at the details, the little pockets! I don't have time for a proper photo shoot but hopefully you can tell how pretty they are from these photos. They make me want to bake cookies. Nah, I'm kidding, they make me want to eat cookies.
I'm going to wear them over dresses and fluffy skirts.

Det finns en ny butik i Härnösand med pysselmaterial, maskeradkläder m.m. Trevligt ställe, men det som fick mig att säga "aaaaaaaaah!" var en hög med små vackra förkläden, handsydda, för bara 29 kr/ st. De var köpta på auktion. Någon har omsorgsfullt gjort vartenda förkläde; titta på de fina små detaljerna och fickorna! Jag har inte tid med riktig fotografering just nu men förhoppningsvis syns det här hur söta de är. De får mig att vilja baka kakor. Bara skojar; de får mig att vilja äta kakor.
Jag tänker ha dem över klänningar och fluffkjolar.

In the background you see an original painting by wonderful Sylvie Van Hulle. Haven't decided on a frame yet. / I bakgrunden syns en originalmålning av den fantastiska Sylvie Van Hulle. Har inte bestämt mig för hur jag ska rama in den än.

Your impromptu photo shoot with your pretty aprons was perfect! They are so very lovely.

Look at them! I haven't seen aprons like that in so long....makes me want one - yes, to wear to my book signings *LAUGH* wouldn't that be funny?

Oh, this reminds me - I simply must put the link to your beautiful work website on my website - is there a particular link I can use to put on my "fave places" links on the kmdotcom thing? email me....!

What a find! Wonderful. I think your teeny tiny mini books are wonderful, too.

My research is all art related. Right now I'm working with the Asia curatorial staff on the new galleries. India will, hopefully, open in May. China next and then Japan.
