Adopt the pace of nature. Her secret is patience. —Ralph Waldo EmersonRemind yourself to stop and smell the flowers (but, a bit more poetically) with this lovely plaque designed by Philadelphia-based artist (and former librarian!) Michelle Ciarlo-Hayes. Emerson's wise and calming quotation graces a cool night sky illuminated by the moon and stars, with a patch of delicate fuchsia daisies blooming in the foreground. The luminous artwork is mounted onto a 5"x5" block of salvaged wood covered with reclaimed paper from discarded dictionaries. With a keyhole opening in the back, our "Pace of Nature" Art Block is ready to hang in a sunroom, reading nook, kitchen, or anywhere you could use a pretty piece of art, and is a gentle reminder to slow down and live in the moment.
