favorite things, part one

I was excited to found this little plaque at a vintage clothing store. It immediately made me think of my favorite filmmaker Agnes Varda. If you haven't seen Varda's documentary ,The Gleaners and I (Les Glaneurs et la glaneuse), you should do so as soon as possible. The film follows Varda as she meets various gleaners while traveling across the french countryside. She interviews people that are collecting potatoes after the fields have been harvested. She comes across a heart shaped potato which then becomes her emblem. I recently found a heart shaped stone (see picture below) in my backyard which reminded me of Varda's heart shaped potato collection. Also check out the sequel, The Gleaners and I: Two Years Later.
