So I checked my calendar and the next time I get on an airplane is August 12th. So I plan to do three weeks of M-F posts until then: Something FOUNDSomething WRITTEN, and Something MADE.


Something FOUND

I love Outsider Artist James Castle’s cardboard creations (via The Art Room Plant):



Something WRITTEN

express shop suggested by Puppywings Jen

I am an express shopper.

Shopping for clothes, you would think that I’m racing for money or something. I’ll dash into a store, pluck a few things off the racks, and then wait impatiently for someone to let me into a dressing room. Clothes are then off, and on, and off, and on again so fast that no one has time to see me in whatever stupid, ill-fitting, what-in-the-world-was-I-thinking shirt or skirt that I had thought might be cute.

Salespeople barely have time to get out the “How’s it going in there?” before I’m opening the dressing room door and rushing past them, flinging the accusatory clothing into their hands and muttering “no thank you.”

When I shop at thrift stores, I often don’t even take the time to try things on at all, especially if things are very inexpensive.

For one thing, there’s always a line, and who has time for that?

And, I figure that if I purchase three XL black t-shirts at $3.00 each, and only two of them fit, then I’m still ahead price-wise, as two black t-shirts from a regular store would likely cost far more than $9.00.



Something MADE

Blob animals in clay and wax.



Have a wonderful day and I’ll see you tomorrow!


Please help me decide what to write about tomorrow! Comment with two words — they can be anything, nouns, verbs, names — and I will pick a set for tomorrow’s post. Examples: “hi Jack” “let’s go,” “mighty fun,” “go now” etc.
