I have been very busy preparing for a yard sale to clear some space in my studio so I have room to work. Yesterday I took a little time out to get my hair colored. As I was leaving the salon, I slipped thru the service alley to pick up an iced coffee one block over. On the way back to my car via the same route, I spotted something that was blocked from my view on the way over.
I blinked when I saw it but it was still there when my eyes few open.
It definately has character.
I sort of expected it to fall apart when I touched it.
There had to be a good reason it was in the, "take it if you want it" sector.
I was a little too excited to see this until I took it out of my car when I arrived home. I don't think it's a really big deal but I'll have to get a consultation on that.
Isn't there a law that says when you clear a space nature will suck something in to fill it? I'm not one to break the law, be it physics or otherwise.
I have officially retired after 32 1/2 years at the same job. Naturally I took my personal items home with me. One is a photograph taken by a terrific photographer named Wendy Werner. She also happens to be a friend whose work I admire very much.
This is the piece I brought home from the office and carried from room to room in my house trying to decide where I liked it most.
I finally settled on my bedroom. It will be the first thing I see when I wake up every morning. I think it looks lovely against the color of the wall.
This is one of Wendy's photographs that hangs in my kitchen. This looks like a black and white photograph but actually it is not. The roof of the Chinese pavilion is black and the fresh snow gives the illusion of a black/white photo. If you look closely you can see the wheat color of the vegetation in the front.
This is a favorite of mine too. I get to see it when I visit my daughter. She has this hanging in her entry.
This one also belongs to my daughter.
Snapshots of these photographs do not do them justice so for better quality and a much more extensive showing, check them here.
My blog is focused on what I saw, heard about, or encountered during my day. I ZOOM IN on things I find particularly interesting, beautiful, or humorous. My interests overlap and mesh in the fields of interior design, rehab, photography, architecture, color, and anything painted. Throw in salvage, bargain hunting, recycling and that summarizes what you are likely to find on this page.
