hi there...how are you? it has been awhile. have you ever had so much to say and yet, nothing to say, all at the same time? that's kind of how i have been feeling lately. i have been keeping myself quite busy. there have been lots of home projects as well as art making. there is always art making...that never stops. i am finally painting all of my rooms that nice fresh white i have been dreaming about. and whenever fresh paint gets put down, it makes me want to change all sorts of other things. i have been "decluttering" in a big way. figuratively and literally. some of my treasures have been making their way into my shop. lots of pictures to take.
i saw a commercial on tv last night with a guy trying to be ferris bueller. he said, "life moves pretty fast. if you don't stop and look around once in a while you could miss it." so true right? so today i stopped and looked around. the first thing i noticed was the way the light came in this morning and illuminated this little corner of my living room. and i became a light chaser.
a little bit later on...the light cast its magic down the dark hallway leading the way to our bedrooms. after its fresh coat of white, i painted a rough band of chalkboard paint all the way around this hall and i have been writing poems and lyrics on it. just for fun.
i had this lace on my table and the when the light came through at lunchtime i noticed the way it can make pretty things even prettier.
and the way it makes simple things look kind of extraordinary.
my little furry buddy needed to go outside, so i popped out back for a little while and wow. a few days of rain and now sun. we have a jungle and the flowers have burst open.
it is time for me to plan my dinner, so i have wrapped up my light chasing for now. i hope you are able to find some time to stop and look around this weekend. who knows what you will find...
