Believed to be Beautiful: Safety Pin

I lose a little more blue paint each year, tiny scraps flaking off as it's used for yet another project, but even though I an entire box of shiny, new pins, this one has always been my favorite.

Did I give you this? Or did you give me one just like it? I use to use this as a barrette for my long hair when I was in Savannah. Joni commented on it being a unique way of utilizing a old diaper pin. :)

Hope you are enjoying the fall season. I just read an essay by Joan Didion today about her young days in this shared city. I smiled at the very first line, an unembellished, beautiful quote you sent to me about a year ago:

"It is easy to see the beginnings of things, and harder to see the ends."

How true.

Thinking of you.
