People keep asking me how I find topics for writing. What is the problem? My life is full of events, adventures and mysteries!
The first thing I wanted to say to Yelena Turetsky Merener after receiving a small package from Israel was 'Are you crazy? You should not have!...'
You see, the whole affair took her several weeks to complete. First, she cunningly found out what I liked most in her shop. Then she somehow made me give her my street address. And then, just imagine me sitting at home, have not bought anything for a while (well, I have bought some beautiful and mostly useless things, as always, but nothing from Israel), and then I get this parcel! with the coral earrings I so much love!
Of course my initial reaction was very impolite, and I want to correct myself. When you receive a gift, especially such a lovely one, you are supposed to say thank you.
Dear Lena, thank you so much! This is a wonderful gift, and you really know how to make surprises! I love these earrings, with all their natural imperfections and dents, thin lines and color variations - they look so much like hawthorn or brier berries, or small apples. They are beautiful, and I keep them on the desk beside me to look at and touch from time to time. I love the tiny pearls, too - they are like snow. These remind me of late autumn or winter when leaves are gone, but red berries are still there, on the branches... I love that time, and cold air, smelling of wet earth and fallen leaves... moist wood... my time, when I feel free and young.
Thank you. I love your jewelry, with its organic feel and beautiful textures; both simple pieces like these beloved earrings of mine, and more sophisticated, like a kinetic caterpillar or a turquoise puzzle necklace. They are a pleasure to look at, and my earrings feel wonderful to the touch, too.
...All this made me think of several things, and i created my first 'moodboard' - a collection of images which go together well reflecting my mood. Do not ask me why these.
This is my first mood board, and I used PicMonkey. You are most welcome to add links to your own collections you post on your blogs, using the tool below.
