Friday, I headed up the road to have an art day with my friend Gaye. I was about halfway there when she called my cell phone to say there was a change of plans. We met at another location, she picked me up, and we went to a yard sale. I have mentioned before that Gaye is some kind of yard sale guru who can find the most amazing things. Where I live, I have stopped going to yard sales because I hardly ever find anything worth getting up early for on my day off! This particular sale was held at the house where Gaye grew up, so it had special meaning for her already. Plus, they had some pretty fun stuff and great prices.
I get it now, why she is willing to get up early, endure the heat or rain or whatever it is doing that day... because I got all this for $4. Art supplies, red envelope with someone's class notes and drawings from an art history class from 1952, an old Japanese/American newspaper (Chicago Shimpo), what appears to be a block printing kit, and a button.
Then we went back to Gaye's where we played with pan pastels, doing all kinds of things they were not supposed to do! I love playing in the experimental art laboratory. I highly recommend it!
