Today I went to a tag sale at Chartreuse . Did I need anything? No but I did find something I could reuse and give an old item a new purpose. Last week I started an oil painting class. I have not painted with oils since I was in high school…oh so many years ago.
I wanted a container to transport my oil paints and I think this old suitcase is perfect. I get great satisfaction out of reusing/recycling and old item.
After my morning out shopping, I returned home and finished reading The Glass Castle. My goal for this new year is to finish the numerous books I have started. I was shocked when I stacked up the books I had started but not finished. I used to never start a new book until I finished the one I was currently reading. I guess the more complicated my life has become the more books I start but do not finish. Finishing The Glass Castle motivated me to clean my studio. Now I need to practice with my oil paints.
