Reflections from the Saints

"Not the goods of the world, but God. Not riches, but God. Not honors, but God. Not distinction, but God. Not dignities, but God. Not advancement, but God. God always and in everything."

– St. Vincent Pallotti

Mister Freedom

These jackets have it all:



the buttons

the read thread in one piece

the clothing tags

the hang tags

the jackets on the left in the one

they like their jackets tighter than I do

did they hit puberty on the street?

the labels

the hang tags

makes me want to create a logo to have made into a stamp

Images from Mister Freedom via Forest bound.

Reflections from the Saints

"Our actions have a tongue of their own; they have an eloquence of their own, even when the tongue is silent. For deeds prove the lover more than words."

Late Valentine Day Images

Sarah Luggs' work has always been a favorite

I liked my four images on Valentines so much that these were not used, but they needed to be shown.

great ideas for packaging for any occasion
