Wild Goose Chase







“We plan our lives according to a dream that came to us in our childhood, and we find that life alters our plans. And yet, at the end, from a rare height, we also see that our dream was our fate. It's just that providence had other ideas as to how we would get there. Destiny plans a different route, or turns the dream around, as if it were a riddle, and fulfills the dream in ways we couldn't have expected.”
-Ben Okri

Thanks to one of my favourite blogs The English Muse, I have had the pleasure of stumbling upon the most gorgeous flickr stream of Scottish artist Fiona Watson. I love the collages she puts together with book pages and birds and feathers and all things french. She's making me want to get out my scissors and glue and hide away for the weekend getting crafty!

  4. Not too long again I bought a picture frame that allowed me to put 3-dimensional objects in there.

    It turned into quite the project but I absolutely love it.

    It's like all the stuff that you would normally throw away that have so many memories attached to.

    Beautiful photos.
