To all the dads out there in the world, thank you for putting band-aids on, teaching us to ride bikes, making us eat our vegetables and watching Saturday morning cartoons with us instead of sports!

Happy Father’s Day.

Found…

I’ve always felt a connection to Jim Dine’s Ten Winter Tools, a series of lithographs from 1973. The combination of gesture and rendering make for romanticized images of ordinary tools and an aesthetic that I love.  I read somewhere that the series was a reference to home, to family, to his father. I too feel an emotional connection to the mundane and feel compelled to adopt many a tool in my vintage hunting.

This post is dedicated to scissors and the inklings of a new collection.

A few pics of Dine’s beautiful “Ten Winter Tools”, 1973.

Well loved and in my favorite color way. 

Again, all things turquoise come home with me.  

Teeny tiny… for thread no doubt

These were a splurge.  I usually pass on the fancier, pricier pairs and stick to the utilitarian, but I had to have these.  Small, delicate and sharp like a weapon.  I love the contrast.
