From one artist to another … a blast from the past.
Someone stenciled this discarded heart-shaped piece of wood.
It was one of those thrift store finds that immediately got my attention and did not end up in storage. I cut and glued vintage china shards, pink iridescent tile, red mirror tile, silver tapestry tile, green glass gems, a couple of red glass hearts, red lips and finished it off with charcoal grout.
It sold the day it was finished. No regrets, except not keeping it. 😉
Charcoal was a good choice.
Moving on … insert whooshing sound here. “D”
“One ought to hold on to one’s heart; for if one lets it go, one soon loses control of the head too.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche
Reflecting on 2018 and found myself thinking about all of the things that I said I was gonna get done and didn’t. But … since I don’t make resolutions the woulda, coulda, shoulda side of the whole guilt trip thing is pretty much mute.
Besides, I made thousands of great decisions, sorta kept to one list, sold a ton of stuff, stayed fairly organized, learned something new everyday and I can still button my old jeans. Well done!
The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life’s plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life. ~Robert Louis Stevenson
