" Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all."
—Emily Dickinson.

I walk by the lake every evening searching for tail feathers from the abundant bird life, in order to make quills for my calligraphy writing. My friend, Ryn Shell, found this feather for me and made this lovely visual image by photographing it against a vintage book and adding a beautiful, Emily Dickinson quote:

Rose Scented Ink.
1 oz. bottle of red, blue or black ink
Small decorative bottle
Small glass funnel
20 drops unscented vodka
4 drops rose essential

Instructions Pour the ink into the decorative bottle, using the glass funnel. (A glass funnel can be washed out; plastic will stain). Mix the vodka and essential oil together in a glass measuring cup. Slowly add this mixture to the ink Screw the top on tightly and gently shake. Now write a letter to someone you love.
