a leather leaf ring

Thread and leaves 
With my favorite green leather (from an old skirt), a few inches of elastic, and some button thread I stitched together a little ring. The indentation left from my wedding band draws my eye too frequently. I thought something playful, but meaningful was in order. At least for this moment. 3 leaves growing. Imperfect and sweet. Intertwined... connected by an elastic... flexible ring. Just right for TODAY. Happy June, my friends!

    I just came back from a morning walk with a friend and we were admiring those flowers blooming on the side of the trail. What are they again?

    1. I always called it wild phlox, but I believe its true name is Dame's Rocket. One of my favorite scents and sites this time of year.

    2. Thank you Maya! Yes, we called it phlox too but I just looked it up you are right it's actually Dame's Rocket, phlox has 5 petals. The varying shades of pinks and purple are so pretty in a bouquet.
      We also look forward to the lupines and wild sweet peas!

  7. So many spaces and places bereft of another who filled your life. The heart and head feel the loss, the finger, bone and sinew show the loss. The empty chair, the sound on the stair, the voice in the every day, the Presence.
    Forgive the gloom here, but I think that it is very real and I do think and know that the ring of three leaves is such a beautiful statement of your courage and hope. Keep on keeping on. You are a gift.
    Love to you.

  8. Maya;
    I just caught up on your blog. While you are adjusting to your new world, you continue to maintain a wonderful way to share yourself. Though we have never met in person - you are a sweet familiar being to me - and know that there are many people wishing you the best you on as your life embarks on a new chapter. Thank you for sharing your journey, sweet lady.
