As you may have noticed, I don't post anything here more than once a month. The fact is, I don't feel like I have a lot to say. I'm more of a visual person. Before this site was launched, and when the business was called Hestia Hand-knits, I maintained a Tumblr blog. It was as much about life here on the ranch as it was about the knitting. But now, with the name change and this new website, I've started a new Tumblr blog and it is entirely visual. It is much easier for me to convey my aesthetic and values through pictures than through words. It consists almost entirely of images found across the internet, but this last one is of a detail of my home, taken today.
My only problem with Tumblr is that one has to create an account to view blogs there. I suppose a lot of people may think that they are signing up to create their own blog, but not true. I've found that most of the blogs there are almost entirely of images. Okay, I could be wrong -- there are maybe hundreds of thousands of blogs there and I have only seen the most minute fraction of them, but that is my sense. So the bloggers that I follow are somewhat like curators, pulling together images to tell a story. I can derive a lot of inspiration from some of them.
Here is a screen-shot of a bit of my Tumblr blog:
There is more to see and more images being added all the time. To see it, go here. I hope you enjoy!
