“Of course there must be lots of Magic in the world,” he said wisely one day, “but people don’t know what it is like or how to make it. Perhaps the beginning is just to say nice things are going to happen until you make them happen. I am going to try and experiment.”
~ Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden
We decided to go downtown yesterday afternoon. The bitter cold has broken and we thought it would be fun to resume a tradition we had many years ago of browsing in some of the specialty shops on our Main Street during this season.
Main Street has changed in the years we were away though. Now it’s all restaurants and clothing stores. We found one shop that was fun to poke around in and we accidentally went into a comic book store (and exited quickly), but that was it. We were disappointed.
Not quite ready to go home, we made a few stops then hubby had the brilliant idea to stop in at the Restore to look for some wood for a photography background I had been talking about in the morning. We not only found the perfect material for a backdrop, I also snagged three unique vessels that I can’t wait to shoot with. All for just a few dollars. Perfect.
Today: a home day organizing and rearranging my woman cave, and camera play with those new vessels and some flowers Gerry brought home yesterday. Oh. And making that shortbread I didn’t get to yesterday.
