«The mind can deliberately change the way it sees things» – Colin Wilson –
This summer I made many Muy Marcottage dresses. Well, actually many were “almost done” but just needed to be finished. So, surrounded by plants, I spent many summer mornings sitting on our terrace stitching . It made me mellow. And happy.
So what is happiness other than inter-relating with the world around you in a positive way?
Here is the dress “Happy” hanging next to my Clippings Garden. We found a wooden balcony rail next to the dumpster, took it home, painted it and hung it vertically on our terrace wall. Then we nailed a bunch of plastic detergent bottles onto it where we’ve planted various clippings. Vertical gardens can be very entertaining!
A CHANGE IN LIFESTYLE, for me, includes the desire to nourish myself properly and to do so spending as little as possible. Obviously, a garden would help only I don’t have any land, just a terrace so I am experimenting with container vertical gardens.
Every Muy Marcottage dress has a word or phrase stitched on it making the dress somewhat dilectical, no?
This dress is Happy, Flirtatious and Easy To Wear.
A ruffle has motion and it’s this motion that makes it happy.
