The Seattle Times had an article about the current exhibit at the Wright Exhibition Space in Seattle this week, "Collecting: Art is a Slippery Slope." The gallery is only open Thursdays and Saturdays 10-2. So I headed over yesterday, met a friend (with a car) and saw this wonderful show. You might have to be a collector to really appreciate it (or a hoarder, or a picker) or maybe just an artist. These collections all belong to local artists or art collectors. Here's the Times review. I loved the electirc mixers and the folding chairs, but my favorite was definitely the quilts.
I've always had a dream about living above a shop, my own shop where I would sell my handmade wares. I would always have a pot of tea on for visitors and a selection of my favorite English magazines on hand (like this one). It would be like my living room and guests would just want to stay. This story from the U.K. edition of Country Living - April 2011 makes me want it to come true. (click on the images for a better view)
I found all of these heart rocks on one walk! Saturday, after it had snowed in the morning and it turned into a beautiful day, I walked on the beach and my pockets kept getting heavier with rocks. Of course some days I find none.
Found this fabulous poster at Paper Products here on the island. I love it! Too bad these aren't still the ferry prices. It's now $12.75 for a car and $7.50 for a passenger.

Happy Monday Everyone!
