All Sorts of Beauty

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2008

The premise of the ColorJoy! blog is that there is artfulness all around us. Whether it be food or a garden, knitting or manufactured goods, there are beautiful things everywhere.

When Rae and I went to Stitches Midwest a few weekends ago, we spotted this irridescent New Beetle in the parking lot. Need I say more? ColorJoy in the happiest extreme!

My New Beetle is metallic bright blue. I wish it were purple (or turquoise) but I love it as it is. At one moment, I had a windfall and looked into how much it would cost to paint it purple. I decided to spend my money in other ways. I went to Africa.

I did the right thing by far. But when I see a paint job like this? I have a twinge of regret… then I take a picture and get on with my day. After all, at the time I took the photos here? I was wearing a beautiful hand-dyed caftan I purchased in Kenya on that trip.

‘Nuff said…
