Look at this:
He obviously reads my blog, and walked into the house laden with rusty stuff! I was just shrieking with joy and excitement! I've already put the first few pieces into a rust bath, and can't wait to add more. Robin says he has been collecting rusty stuff for years now, and I can see that in this great collection. I am so thrilled!! Thank you darling!!
He also brought along a lot of gorgeous pieces of fabric that he has collected over the years. Here are just a few:
this is a vintage, say 40's, tablecloth:
an old treasured shirt of his, that he couldn't bear to part with, so he cut it up, saved it, and then gave it to me: (!)
A wonderful mola and a piece of silk which was once used by a friend to house his Taro cards:
and another really neat piece of fiber:
We had a wonderful visit with our friend, and we are so very happy that he has come into our lives again, but on a much more personal level this time! For years we enjoyed watching Robin perform on the stage both here locally and in Atlanta; and now he is our friend as well!
As for more gifts, this is the sunset over "our" lake this evening:
breathtaking! It's been a FABULOUS 24 hours!
