Journeys, Adventures, Voyages and Dreams ~




I love travels.

Not always or only the kind that requires transportation.

Sometimes, the best journeys are thoughtful journeys...

Back in time.

A time before we were born. 

Autumn in the Ozarks....1919 ~

Dream Journeys...

The real Gerushia.  I dream of her often ~ 

Sometimes, a journey can take you no further away than your own kitchen.
A beginner's stroll through bread baking ~ 

Remembering can be a journey.

Past homes.  
My little stone cottage that I miss terribly every single day ~

Dirt Roads ~

Secret churches.  Abandoned through time ~ 

Wanderings through restful places ~ 

Goldie, Minnie, Lilah and Grace ~ 

Emerald fields ~ 

and journeys into the great unknown ~ 

Often times, the best travels simply escort you down your own hallway ~ 

Journeys in music.  Setting the pace for my work in the studio ~ 




My art allows me to visit worlds.
To take journeys.
Meet new people.

Petula ~ 

Oh how Petula dreams of exotic travels and adventures.

She's a brave girl.  
Leaving her home with nothing more than a single suitcase and a nickel in her coat pocket.

It was Petula that led me into the dreamy world of travel and adventure this week.

Weaving pictures of dirt roads, magical moons and suitcases.

Thank you for taking this journey with me.

Until Next Time:
Gerushia's New World

Petula is lovely! I feel like I identify with her oh so much. I left to grade school with that feeling. Not knowing what I might encounter and nothing but my stuff and my will.

I like those adventures in time. I have been taking adventures through time like that. Especially while I have been looking at the quilt top you sent me. It's amazing and I love taking travels through time like that! Thank you!

Thank you for the wonderful pictures.
I was just looking at your new Etsy offerings. What a riot! Miles & Matty! I was thinking,hey, I know someone with a Miles & Matty. As I read on, I saw that it was indeed THE Miles & Matty. They look great! Now they'll be even more famous!

How funny! Look how all my Miles & Mattys lined up perfectly in the above comment. I couldn't have purposely done that if I tried! :o)

Kim, I LOVE when you talk about the Ozarks. It feels like a dream world of family history, that you bring to life with your tales.

Also, I ADORE that stone cottage, oh my!! And the dirt roads and old churches steal my heart.

I love seeing your creating in action - I too feel like you transport us to other worlds with your art.... Petula.... wonderful!

Owls have such a grand vibe don't they?

Wise and honest....

Love, V
