it is thursday. I am in the middle of my vacation and I have accomplished almost nothing on my list. Is that a good sign for a vacation or a bad one? We've been reading a lot and making brownies and then eating them so it's all good. Yesterday I started looking for some post cards I might want to use for my wedding some way and I opened every box I own. I didn't find them, I found three bags of things to give away to goodwill and cleaned out a lot of space for beets. 31 quarts of beets, 12 pints of pickles, 28 quarts of beans. It will come as a surprise to no one that i see green beans and beets when i close my eyes.
I did find those postcards. They were exactly two feet from me in a box that i thought i checked already. I guess it was so cathartic to donate all that other stuff that I'm just relieved to find the cards. Now I have to figure out how to use them. I have two hundred or so 1970's vintage postcards of acadia. I was thinking of glueing baby envelopes with notes in them martha stewart style or maybe having a stamp made I just have to decide if they're response cards or announcements or save the dates or what.
That's one of the things I have to decide on soon. one of the many things. I'm supposed to be working on my brooch bouquet this week and i have been actually. I have a feeling this is going to be one of those projects where I go through a whole lot of supplies and eventually i'll figure out the right way to do it. I'm still full of enthusiasm and in one of my boxes I found a cameo brooch that was my mothers so I'm trying to work that in without damaging it. wish me luck on that one.
