Reasons to be cheerful - its the weekend
Tonight when I left work it was light enough (well only just) to take a picture or two. And its almost light when I go out in the morning so things are getting better!
Above and below is our local "Michaelangelo" which I drive past on the way to work. I love painted buildings and this always makes me smile - its so incongruous in the middle of a little suburb.
Popped into a charity shop and spotted a sale of childrens collectible books - ooh lovely. I had to buy this one but was disappointed when I got home and tried to peel the price stickers off only for them to ruin the cover. Why do they put the stickers on the front cover like that? Anyway I still love the picture - perhaps a little tea staining will help the bright white patch!
Arrived home to find my copy of Selvedge had arrived. This is a wonderful read and I read it from cover to cover and keep them all. Even the adverts are textile related in some way. Pure eye candy all wrapped around with fabulous insight, history, creativity etc etc
Hoping to pull in something creative this weekend.
Hope you all have a good time!
