there are certainly things that find their way back home. my kids, my grandkids and i will say i am always thrilled to find my way home too. i was watching this little bird house that i recieved as a gift. to tell you the truth i was not crazy about it but hung it up proudly. guess what? birds every single year. even more then one batch a season. a big surprise. where am i going with this? of course to my traveling shawl. fly away but please come back home.http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4029/4650690747_58da89ac87.jpg

Some sources of comfort are more obvious than others- to the untrained eye. Above, are three of mine, which occurred (almost) naturally. Actually, somebody's bottom was on the Warm & Purple One before I took this photo.
A favorite friend of mine knit this treasure, and I wore it constantly after she gave it to me. Not just because I got so many compliments wearing it, and that it was a cold winter- the WPO is a constant source of comfort because the making/giving of it was such an act of kindness.
Everyone appreciates things made with love- we all have garments which remind us of the people associated with it- sometimes even where the item has been- and that's what I look forward to in our group's travel project. Talented and thoughtful friends tagging each other's garments...transforming and personalizing each piece.
I just know that whatever we send out, it will never be the same again... I think the Warm & Purple One has to stay at home.

If anyone wants to try their hand at bookmaking, I have a bunch more "Lands and Peoples" vintage encyclopedia covers just waiting to be transformed into travel journals. Let me know and I will mail you a set!
