Blog Love: Resurrection Fern

"Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better."
~Albert Einstein

Creativity is seemingly just a stone's throw away for Margaret Oomen of Knitalatte - Resurrection Fern.

Following the sage advice of Frank Lloyd Wright, ( "Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature, it will never fail you." ) she unearths treasures that others might walk right over, and presents it, adorns it, and honors it, in an almost magical way.

She makes me want to slow down more...

get down to a snails eye level...

and breath in the earth.

To see more of these inspiring photos and read a bit more about her creative life, please visit Margaret's blog resurrection fern

And if you love textiles, (as I do) be sure to check out her fascinating and beautifully documented post on experimental dyeing with natural materials, found here.
