"February, when the days of winter seem endless and no amount of wistful recollecting can bring back any air of summer."
- Shirley Jackson, Raising Demons
This month has found me in a bit of a creative muddle. Do I spend time indulging in my first passion: photography? Or do I spend my limited free time developing a new/old love: calligraphy? Hmm...as the month progresses we'll see which wins.
While looking for images to show here I realized I had seldom used my DSLR since Christmas and my iPhone only slightly more. So while the idea behind "10 on 10" is to showcase the 10th day of each month, this month's edition highlights 10 images from the last 2 or 3 weeks. And as it's February our theme for the month is LOVE. It's a rather hodge-podge but I hope it will give you a glimpse into what makes my heart go all aflutter.

|Trying out a new dip pen nib.|
|Making Valentine's for the family...a tradition|
|Coffee with my sweet husband at SightGlass Coffee in San Fransisco...so good!|
|A morning routine...solitary breakfast in the morning light.|
|A very old leather, hand painted handkerchief box. It reminds me of my dear Grandma very time I see it.|
|I've rediscovered a love from my youth: Calligraphy|
|Practice makes perfect. And what's not to love about a PINK pen holder?|
|A good idea while sipping tea.|
|Handmade Valentine's for my children. A tradition I started 20+ years ago.|
