La Vie Est Belle

Its another beautiful day in southern France. Its also a day to remember for me. Four years ago a new high school friend died in a car crash with two other boys. It was a sad day, and I cant believe its been four years. I'm sure everyone who experienced this day is thinking of their angels today. Rest in Peace Tony, Nico, and Chris.

Today our Fibers class went to Jean-Pierre's studio again. Although what we heard was information we had heard last week, it was again inspiring to be in a working studio with great things to find and photograph. From the plants outside to antiques hanging from the ceiling and designs of the tiles laid out, I felt inspired by what I saw.
We once again were taken inside Jean-Pierre's home to hear about his amazing collection of ancient finds and a great collection of artwork. His house is charming and he has this great coffee maker, that apparently is famous and has been in a movie or two. When he saw me photographing his kitchen sink he said "what? its just a sink?" but it looked cute and I wanted a photo!
I realized today how lucky I am to be where I am and to be seeing such beauty every single day. God has truly slowed down my life and brought me to a place where I can relax and gaze at his beautiful creations. So many distractions have been taken out of my life and I am able to feel inspired again and I am loving it. Once I have a few more items made I will be sure to share them on here! But for now... another beautiful picture of my new surroundings.
