Read on to see some beautiful collage art and some other stuff
In this week’s newsletter: victory gardens, picture books, and sad songs
Alison Stockmarr's Instagram profile reads, "Collage/book artist, working with found ephemera. Saving the world one book at a time...and the woman who invented Face Book... the hardback version!" The latter referring to her series "Face Books" that pokes fun at social media profiles by pairing old photos with book titles.
Be sure to check out her picturebook "Makedoandmend", a picture story of a land where recycling is woven into the fabric of everyday life.
There is so much buzz these days about Victory Gardens. I'd argue that we should always plant a bit more than we need to share in our local communities. Did you know that most food banks will accept donations of homegrown fruits and veggies and eggs from backyard chickens?
Too many zucchinis?
Ample Harvest has a "Find a Pantry" button on the top of their site to help you find a local food bank or soup kitchen that would love to accept your produce and eggs.
You can buy the poster above and others at Victory Gardens of Tomorrow. I have 6 of them hanging in my kitchen and think I now need some badges and flour sack towels.
Watching & Knitting—Flowers
This hilarious series looks and feels like a melancholy fairy tale, often breaking into Ken Russell or Twin Peaks like dream sequences. Full disclosure I would watch anything with Olivia Colman, but she has disappointed me yet. The cast and costumes are extra fabulous.
