What is home to you?
Is it about the building? ...or is it more about 'what home is, rather than 'where' home is; about the beauty of the people the growth. The hart and beauty.

Mixed Media -
I studied art years ago - majoring in textiles - and have enjoyed using many mediums over the years, but I only learned to make my first basket three years ago. Over the past 18 months my joy and interest in vessels has grown - we are all vessels, carrying life, memories, lessons learned - and what they can say to us.
I also love the redemption of taking dead leaves, weeds from a garden, vines, fabric, etc. and creating something new that shows its beauty, and speaks to the hearts of those who see them - even if it is just to give them a smile.
