Artfulness is Everywhere

bullethairdryer.jpgMaybe you know I love resale shops. I find some amazing great clothing sometimes because I check them out. I particularly love it when I find hand-embroidered items or fine thin wool sweaters.

This week I had all of 10 minutes to blow on the way between two appointments. I happened to be near St. Vincent De Paul store.

Um, chrome makes me happy. And there between crummy old television sets and desk lamps, I saw this beauty. A bullet-shaped hair dryer from a long while ago. For $59, if I remember right.

I can’t have this, no matter how fun and beautiful it is. My house is full of too many things that I actually use.

Nevertheless, I really appreciated this lovely and well-designed relic of my childhood years. I took a photo and moved on.

A friendly woman looking at dresses stopped me to say how much she enjoyed my colorful clothing. We had a fun 2-minute talk about the joy of color. Again, I moved on.

I did not buy anything. That’s how it goes, sometimes.

    Wow, seeing that brings back memories for me too! My mom had a smaller one that I remember she’d balance on the dining room table since it wasn’t on as large of a stand….
