I love the ritual of walking a few blocks for my morning coffee. I know it would be considerably cheaper to "drink" at home but there is more to it than the coffee. Yesterday as I headed out the door, I paused to dead head my geraniums. As I walked up to the yard waste dumpster to drop the spent blossoms, I was startled by a pair of orphans. They were clinging to each other and looking very forlorn after a night out in the rain. Their hair was tangled and they sorely need a bath. Now remember, this is before coffee so I'm not firing on all cylninders. Unlike my blog from yesterday, I did not hesitate. I scooped one under each arm and hauled them back to my studio.
You cannot tell by this picture but the paint is peeling and it's obvious they were a deep red at one time. The wheels are in motion on what to do with this find. They will reappear in a later post. Let me know if you recognize them.
My blog is focused on what I saw, heard about, or encountered during my day. I ZOOM IN on things I find particularly interesting, beautiful, or humorous. My interests overlap and mesh in the fields of interior design, rehab, photography, architecture, color, and anything painted. Throw in salvage, bargain hunting, recycling and that summarizes what you are likely to find on this page.
