A good bit of my time has been spent conversing with two (or three) great groups I have found on facebook for vintage items.
Genie Bottles, something my mom found and had around the house when I was small, appeal to me for many reasons, not the least of those the way the sun shines through the different colored glass bottles. I have met a really neat group mostly composed of collectors from Australia, which inspired a new digital painting Genie Bottles from a photo of my bottles.
and Flower Power designs
which had been added to my shops on
Red Bubble, Fine Art America and Zazzle
Then I found a group that collects, sells etc vintage linens and bedding. Seeing all the vintage linens and retro designs made me smile and gives me inspiration for even more new projects for my shop on Spoonflower where I design fabric, wallpaper and wrapping paper.
I have also connected with quite a few Mid-Century Modern collectors which no doubt will lead my mind off on some future designs as well.
Inspiration comes from lots of places and along the way I have made some new friends. Hopefully my creative time will become even more useful as I continue to interact with these fun groups and they share their collections with me.
Have a groovy day, go with the flow, keep on keepin' on and to quote someone I met this week "Right on Right on!"
