Scatterday Mosaic Letter H
The letter H is for H and also for H20, which it signifies on the pole where it was nailed. Water is something humans need...which is how I justified the water tanks in the third row.
Humans also do handwork, like the tapestry/needlepoint sampler, which has history (a human thing) being started by one woman in my family and finished by another.
The photo (b&w in real life, a poster on a wall in the human home here) is a detail from "The Walk to Paradise Garden" by W. Eugene Smith - you've probably seen the whole photo before, it's a twentieth century classic. It's here to represent that very human emotion, hope (see, why should Scatterday things have to be concrete objects? No reason at all, afaik). Anyway, it's a photo of humans...
Some humans (well, this one at least) have a hankering for home decorating books of specific kinds, such as Jane Brocket (Yarnstorm)'s book, and David and Amy Butler's one. While these may be my weakness, I'm vastly outnumbered by the humans with a passion for hardware (including hammers).
A house for dolls is a toy (not confined to children, and besides, who said that the kids should have all the toys??). The inventive pepperpot hammer is part of another toy my dad made. Toys are about entertainment, and DVDs are entertainment (maybe I'll be working in DVDs each Scatterday like Pennie does babushkas!).
The miniature (1/16th) scale hoover / vacuum cleaner is a vintage toy, while the heart cushion (Ikea) is soft.
Right, so that's H. Next week is Letter T and the categories are Clothing, Purple and Hot Things.
