Visual Inspired Shopping













My Sister-In-Law and I went shopping yesterday and we had a great time. Even though I believe she believes, that I shop a little strangely. I just can't help myself! I've been known to buy music, wine and other treasures that move me...not because I like the music or the wine...I've usually never sampled them, but because of their visual appeal. My husband, her brother, is used to me and stopped wondering why I bought a CD, I've never heard, because the artwork on the cover is amazing. And, really, it doesn't have to be something purchased in a store. To me it's surrounding yourself with beauty and things that make you smile. When you're happy...you will probably pass that feeling on to others, or at least amuse them.




Yesterday I turned the corner and saw the most beautiful wine bottle I've ever seen; found a pretty little container for our coffee and who could resist fresh Basil!

Go to it Deb. And it is tax deductable. Are you going to use such in paintings?

I think you're on the right track, some humans buy things even though they don't like the looks! Have a wonderful day!

Well, I must say that the gift of bringing amusement to another is a gift indeed. I also think that Moscati bottle is gorgeous!

Sometimes I will keep an attractive bottle or other container for a while, just because in case I find something I can do with it. I grew up in a house where no one ever threw anything away, so I usually try to control those sorts of impulses.
