Everyday Things

Everyday things can be arranged for happy glimpses of order and beauty.
Juxtaposing everyday objects is an ongoing habit of mine that never ceases to amuse me.
So here is a glimpse of my clutter and piles. I was inspired by one of my favorite blogs,
Here is my desk.
The lovely watercolor is painted by Phyllis Ray.

Book Pile.
One of my favorite books: Tokyo: A Certain Style.

Pristine....I knew when to leave it alone.

The long skinny dark box is a Leroy Lettering system.
I used this back in the day of Ink on Mylar Drafting.
Ancient History.
On top of that is a game of Go.
On top of that is a vessel used in the field and carved by
Ray's grandfather.

Neglected clutter, once arranged but, alas,
it has gotten away from
me. I delight in the colorful firework boxes from India.
