Shedworking makes me happy.
It just seems to always make me happy.
thought for the day:
don't ever discount the luxury of a smaller
place and a light suitcase. mobility: nice.
(granted, the fairy tale above is somewhat of

went to visit their amazing

Peacay, from Sydney, says (in his profile) "To me, the content of this site (wonderful things made by other people) far outweighs my own pedestrian talents. I'm just the curator." It's a beautiful site (as most people know, already); what really stuns me, though, is the humble attitude he's put forth. Consider the amount of work he does, collecting and curating these images.

illustrated the covers and contents of books but
inking the title text and author's name in his own
hand, giving the books a distinctive look on shelves..."
