Searching for the perfect items to feather my nest. This calls for a road trip; one of the best kind. The is the sort of trip where you let intuition be your guide and take you to that perfect place. A place that’s not too generic but down to earth and rich with things that were once loved in another life. Art with a purpose and gadgets with a past. Can there be such a place? I believe there can. It is due north and then a hard turn to the west. It will lead me past small towns and wide open pastures. Just when I think I can travel no more, the road will end at my true north and lead me to a place where decorated dreams come true and fantastic treasures await.
Yes, Yes, oh yes, a treasure hunt of the best kind. This hunt will take just the right light and a sensible pair of shoes. I will go with an open mind and without a plan. The right item will call my name as it stands out among the crowd.
Strange music will fill my ears as the message becomes clear. Perfect is not a person or place but a feeling that comes from within. A true north that can’t be seen. Although my trunk remains empty and my pocketbook poor, I am filled with inspiration and images to keep. The perfect look of a cozy nest is captured by the lens and tucked away for just the right time and space.
I never venture very far without the comfort of knowing that at any time I can whip out my camera and make a memory last forever. My dreams are endless but- no matter- someday I will capture them all, until then this girl and her camera are off on another road trip.
Every once in a while I feel that wanderlust creep in; this is a feeling that won’t be ignored. I am compelled to obey as I travel astray.
The truth is this: today my travel is limited to cyberspace. These images were taken on a junk trip last spring but I have that itch to go again. Soon, very soon.
Most of the items I saw were beyond my means. If I had deep pockets………well, then I’d need a bigger house. I did manage to pick up a few things. The first image above, is an angel statue that I placed under a cloche, along with a few treasures from the sea I’ve collected over the years. Speaking of the sea, it’s getting close to that time of year again. My bags are almost packed.
Flip-flop fever is beginning to set in and I can hardly wait. This winter has been way too long for everyone!!! Don’t ya think?
Have a wonderful Thursday. Take a trip, even if it is only in your mind, sometimes those are the best kind, anyway 😉
