I love the Alice in Wonderland feeling I get when one link leads to another which leads to another.
Because many times it leads to something like this.
appealing. great aesthetic. winsome design. people who make stuff. I’m always blown away by those creative types who can make their living from their passion. (and yes, for those for whom numbers are a passion, like accountants, it’s equally awesome that you can make your living from that, too.)
The clincher though: the SHOEMAKER!
Who makes shoes? Who has a stash of leather and buckles and soles and lasts? I am so jealous! Though, I did knit a pair once (for Thing 2 for her birthday). Granted, the base was already made.
Blows my mind.
