Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

The Face of Lummi; Past, Present, Future





This post is dedicated to all of the beautiful, beautiful Lummi children that I work with every day. My fondest wish for you is that you learn from your elders and carry their wise words in your hearts. That you  learn all you can from your teachers. That you overcome every obstacle and walk toward you future with dignity and confidence...heads held high. 
 I carry each of you in my heart.

Lovely pictures and people! This is a new culture to me. The woven hats are unique...love the woven necklace with the rose!

The Lummi's are a Northwest Washington Native American tribe and part of the larger group of Salish Indians. Many, but not all reside on a nearby reservation along the western shores of our state. Many Lummi children attend the school I work in, so I've had the chance to learn about them and their culture. The woven hats are common among Northwest Natives...I suppose they were useful in keeping th rain off-and could have also served as containers when nwcessary.
