In any quest for change, I suppose it is normal to feel a little,oh I don't know...overwhelmed and blue (?). But I've brought myself to this place of transition and I'm determined to follow through. (That even sort of rhymes:-)
I need a more writer focused presence on the internet; or so everyone who hires or teaches these sort of things says, and I should divorce my personal blog from it. So off I go...into the unknown again, and in case you don't know, I hate that.
This brings me to this post. Have you ever gotten an omen this blatant? I had to get out of the house and took a 5 minute trip into downtown Anoka...looked up, and there it was...the massage businesson the corner and just changed their sign, and it made me laugh out loud. I love when these things happen when I have my camera. Anoka has gotten a lot of new stores lately, and thank god for 'em, I needed the break.
"Occasional" stores have gotten to be really big in small towns like this all over Minnesota..and The French Flea is a favorite of mine. They feature stark contrast furnishings with lovely turns and neutral accents. Just across the street is a well stocked bead store that never disappoints me as far as having any beady thing I could possibly need.
Reactions is a new design store in town next to Gently Spoken, a beautifully decorated personal gift book, card, and other things designed by Cheryl Karpen, creator of "Eat your Peas". (You can click on the pics to make them bigger)
Then off to Antiques On Main where I spotted Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Monks. I don't think I've ever seen this version of the Russian Dolls...has anyone else? What an AWESOME old saxophone. Purple velvet, and the possibility of latent greatness almost tempted me.Seriously, how many kinds of fishing lures are there?
...a freaking room full. These things are heavy too.
If technology can downsize a radio from the size of a Microwave to something that you can put in your pocket...I can make my own website, and change my blogs focus...right? Relax.
