Welcome to A Tranquil Nook Blog

We welcome you to follow along on our crafty adventures. Frank is a farmer by day, jewelry and hand braided cord-maker by night. Jane simply fiddles with fabric and fiber any time she can. We share things about what we make, how we make it, where you can get it.

The Spirit

Enjoying our freedoms today and also thinking of John Kennedy's "“Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.” Let us each find and make ways, large or small, to promote respect, peace, happiness, safety and well being for all. Living together, sharing the load, sharing the joys.

Bringing you some memories from childhood of watching Kate Smith on one of the evening music shows. Was it Author Godfrey? She still sounds good to me.


How did kids such as I go from this to anti-war protests, believing in social justice, human rights and so much more? Well, this actually inspired it. Believing that we do live in a grand and wonderful place, and that we each participate in making it better, healthier, friendlier. Thanks to Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Jr, Joan Baez, "Hair", and many others; even our parents and the "establishment" who provided us the time, the schooling, the belief in ourselves to go out and make changes.

We did a lot. We need to do more. Little by little, lot by lot.
