old toys

Thanks for the friendly and supportive comments. Hillary wrote about a revelation she had the other day while looking at Angela Moll's Secret Diary quilts - about showing only glimmers of oneself and one's life in a blog. Sometimes I feel like having a blog is like keeping the door open just a little, just a sliver - here's my crafts, I went here, look what I bought - when in reality things are so much more messy than that in life. More complicated, with worries and stresses and private joys and all of those daily human things. I guess I open the door a little more or less with every post, as we all do. Yesterday, a little more than usual!



I was looking for images of old stuffed animals and found this one here. I love material culture, our things say so much about us, and we imbue them with so much meaning. And can any object have more significance to us than an vigorously loved toy? These guys are so sweet and sad. Beautiful.
