A Mark Twain Masterpiece: Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc

A Mark Twain Masterpiece: Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc

Today Notre Dame Cathedral was on fire. As far as I can tell the world paused to watch, to ponder, to mourn and to consider for a moment what is holy, permanent, or worth remembering. The parallel between the burning of Our Lady and the life and demise of Joan of Arc is a connection too obvious to be ignored. For years, I have had important things to share about the story of this martyr but for whatever reason was holding back. Watching the flames today has encouraged me.

The Warmth of Handwoven Wool

The Warmth of Handwoven Wool

While most mothers these days are not found sitting at the loom, there is something inherently motherly in textiles. My mind is flooded with snapshot images of my mother tucking the quilts around me as I went to sleep, wrapping a warm towel around me as I got out of the bathtub, or helping me bundle up in scarves and coats before sending me out to play in the snow with a kiss on the nose. There is something of motherly warmth in a blanket and Mother's Day is a wonderful moment to return the favor to our mothers.

An Easter Tree

An Easter Tree

Last week here in our store we decided to put together our own Easter Tree and we wanted to share the process so that you can do the same. If you already have an Easter Tree, we have a few ornaments that you may want to add to your own collection.
