Ever have so many things you want to do, the list becomes so long it feels smothering? I hit that mark this Spring. So many great ideas but just no follow thru. A creative brick wall of sorts and if you are like me when you hit that wall you just stop. Natural I am sure, but I was ready to break that wall and more importantly let all those ideas come to fruition.
Lucky for me, a dear friend recently opened a shop in town and with all these projects waiting for homes...the timing could not have been more perfect. So I made my piles of things to donate, toss or create. The 'create' pile got pretty large, but excited to say I finished with a lot less stuff, a big sense of accomplishment & some pretty fun, upcycled goods.
So here is what I have doing the last few weeks. Starting with a huge assortment of old frames and lots of interesting things to fill them with. Puzzles, mirrors, maps, old music sheets...and some were just so cool...just adding color was enough.
I found these old Hamm's placemats and lacquered it into an old tray. "from the land of sky blue water.."
A darling orange, elephant planter
and his blue, duck friend
A retro giant fork & spoon
And finally, the Ingrid chair. A perfectly paired linen seat with a glossy royal blue .
You can find all of these..along with many other unique things at the Regal Find. Located in charming downtown Middleton, right around the corner from Bloom bake shop. It is lovely space that is worth exploring and the neatest shop owner.
Ahhhh, feels good to cross so many things off my list. Having little more creative breathing room doesn't hurt either.
