I was straightening up last night and came across a book I haven't looked at in a few years, Living Artfully by Sandra Magsamen. I opened it and found a passage I previously highlighted:
We have been conditioned to focus on whatever little thing isn't quite right about ourselves, our creations, and our surroundings. Instead, let's decide to focus on what is right, lovely, and beautiful. This is a simple concept, yes, but it's transformative just the same.
Isn't funny how we come across things right when we need them. I have a habit of looking at what needs to be changed, in my pictures, my house, myself... I am going to take her advise and try to 'focus on what is right, lovely and beautiful'.
I am also going to reread her book.
I made a trip to the Antique Mall this week. I have always loved mismatched teacups stacked in pictures but only had one teacup. This trip I found two cheap teacups to add to my props and used them for Kim Klassen's class Be Still, the prompt was 'tea and change from above'. My coins are from the Bahamas.
I had also been keeping an eye out for an old chippy window. I found one. I used it with The Studio prompt 'potting bench'.
Today I am joining Kim Klassen's Friday Finds, The Studio and the class Be Still.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a wonderful weekend!
