Order out of Chaos

LS has a difficult job trying to help people whose lives are falling apart to find the keys to their inner home. She doesn't complain, but I know from past experience that it's no easy task to listen to people's problems all day. So I imagine that she finds some peace and harmony in arranging things.

What a good time she must have had lining up and stacking these bits of shell, beach glass, and other objects  in such a tidy arrangement! Although not precise, it is orderly.

And this one just melts my heart. I love the odd thing in the center surrounded by alternating pointy green and roundish white bits of beach glass.

Some time ago, she arranged all these wooden wedges in the window of a shed. I'm willing to bet she doesn't think of herself as an artist. But wouldn't you give these high marks as art? I would!

Speaking of order, I'm still unpacking boxes and trying to make order in my new home. It's getting there. The beading table is currently clear enough to do a little bead embroidery... be still my heart! I'll try to take and post pictures of my current piece soon.


  1. I vote for yes! These beautifull stills are pieces of art indeed.

    And glad to hear you are settling in. Wish I could pay you a visit.

  2. They are beautiful in such a peaceful way - wonderful post!

  3. All three arrangements are visually very pleasing and somehow touch the soul, and they are definitely artistic. Besides, I am offering a new bet: Not LS took the photos, but you did!

  4. Yes, I am the photo taker... I doubt LS knows I took or posted these pictures... She's not active with blogging or FB. I agree with your assessment that somehow her arrangements touch the soul.

  5. Each of these pictures definitely display works of art!! i love the first picture and immediately saw a beaded art quilt emerging from this image. I hope that you are doing well sifting through all of IT. It is hard to do but can be very cathartic. You are very loved Robin and such an amazing woman. You will grow so much in this process and be better for it!! know that we are thinking of you when you feel low!! Hope that your beading table clear out is coming along and you can get back to your happy beading activities. Art Therapy is definitely the best!!
    Big Hugs!
