SECOND ANNUAL SLOW LOVE LIFE ORNAMENT SALE


It's that time of the year--potter Frances Palmer has created a holiday ornament for readers of Slow Love Life. Thank you, Frances!

I love being able to offer you something special; Frances is selling the ornaments from her website. Last year she pressed clay into flower molds--those sold out, I'm happy to say, on her behalf. This year, her ornaments are hand cut doves, holding painted boughs of greenery. I especially like the way she's outlined her shapes with pencil tracery, and also the accidental texture of the bodies is quite lovely.


Doves are among my favorite birds (hawks and owls being the others, herons too). They make flimsy, disorderly nests of sticks that often look like they're just barely perched on a branch.


For years, at my old house in Pelham, I had a nesting pair on the trellis just outside my bedroom window. Their cooing chant was a soothing sound to hear on waking. They're always walking around in my garden in Rhode Island, looking for seeds; they maintain a stately pace, but they flush straight up when I come too near, as they are quite shy. And of course, New York City has its share of doves, or, rather, pigeons. Happy Holidays all!
