I've been picking up some good old things lately. Frames for my show in June, doodads, nicknacks, the usual. Below is a photo of the findings from an afternoon antiquing trip a few weeks back. And last weekend was the big Portland Old Stuff Fest, so now I have even more new-old doodads to find a place for!
Tell me I'm not the only person who tends to shop (thrift, antique, or otherwise) in "schemes"? Types of items, certain colors, etc. I seem to do this all the time. But maybe, if we take the example above, it's just a case of my liking the same things (in this case, red + white) over and over again.
I've made a vow (of sorts) to myself to try to only buy old or handmade things through the Summer, excepting necessities. It will be fun to see how it works out!
And I've made a vow this afternoon to do a big Spring cleaning of my studio, and hopefully make room for some of my new-old treasures (and also unearth my drawing table from towering piles of nonsense). Off to do that...now!
