There are some really neat pieces of art using somewhat pedestrian objects that look like letters. I really liked the look of them. As I was thinking about words we could spell, I thought about where I would find the “letters”. I wanted our letters to not only make a word, but also to be a reminder of a specific place.
As a family of history lovers, we enjoy Washington DC and Philadelphia, but no place has captured our hearts like Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia. This past spring, we took 007 and he had a blast.
He got to pretend that he was a spy.
While we were walking around, learning about Colonial times, we were also on a scavenger hunt to find letters to spell out a word.
When we came home, we bought some plain black frames and got our pictures printed at Rite Aid. (It’s cheaper than using our own ink and you get that pretty glossy look.)
The word has been my anthem for the last year.
My favorite Emily Dickinson poem reads
Art created from things that we would otherwise overlook.
This may be my favorite so far.
