Celebrating Craft and Color

20130829-183726.jpgI noticed today on my iPhone that I’ve taken a few photos this week that had something unintentional in common. They all represent crafts I admire and similar rich colors.

Above was a woman dying clothes by hand at SKIF. Like the store, each piece is unique.
Below is a small display at my favorite cupcake bake shop in the world, Sweet Art.
This place represents love and everything that is good about food…and people.

Sweet Art is also home to my favorite craft of all: fine art. The shop owners are married; wife bakes love into her work, while husband paints his on canvas.

And finally, there’s this random photo thrown in for good measure. A colleague received the most beautiful flowers and I couldn’t help but take a picture. Someone put this arrangement together in such a way that it looks like it’s bursting with color and happiness.

There really is so much beauty and talent in the world. It’s such a blessing to see when people put such forces to work for good.
