Today was a good day. I got to go shopping all by myself and take as much time as I wanted. I went to a little gift shop in Redmond I keep meaning to check out called the RoseTree cottage. I then went to Borders where I picked up 2 books I didn't have as well as the new UK Country Living. For lunch I went to the British Pantry in Redmond and had a lovely salad and roast beef sandwich. Along with an apple blackberry tart with hot custard. Of course I had a pot of tea as well of their house blend.
Isn't it lovely?
Interestingly enough I also had a revelation today on why I like the fact my desk and craft area are all white. I like how bright and cheery it is but more than that I love that it is just like picking up a blank piece of paper and placing it before an entire box of color. I love the potential in it and the backdrop it provides for all the possiblities of art. For the most part the white of my background will not compete for my attention when I am in the middle of creating.
