Toward the end of our week, I was able to get my thrifting and junking fix through second hand stores, thrift shops, and on Saturday, two wonderful flea markets in Chelsea and Hell's Kitchen. Words aren't too necessary, so here's the opportunities in photos.
Drum roll for all my assemblage and Curious Elements supplies.
I am a woman trying to navigate being 50-something, to not dwell too much on getting older, and reminding myself constantly to live in the moment. I am a woman who loves books, reading, and used bookstores (especially Powell's in downtown Portland). I am a woman who is discovering art after years of raising kids, working, and going to school. I am a woman who loves collage, painting, mixed media, and assemblage. I am a woman who loves gunkholing in junk stores and picking trash up off the street just for the thrill of its possibilities. I am a woman who has a mantra to BE BOLD.
