Happy New Year

Detail of the elaborate beading on my thrift find

Hello, again!  I hope your year is off to a good start!  This will be a very brief post, because. . .well, I want to organize the blog, not just post spontaneously according to whim.  I haven't yet figured out what the organized blog should look like, so today's post is a little random.

This. Jacket.

I found this amazing elaborately beaded and brocaded linen jacket in 2008 at a thrift store for $1.00.  Yes, that's 1 USD.

Is there anything better than scoring something exquisite for $1.00?  

Now, I have never worn this jacket, because, well,  the jacket is a Size 4 and I'm . . .not.   But, to me, this jacket is a work of art. and I've decided to keep it in my office studio as a source of inspiration for the creative year ahead.

Of course, I won't leave it hanging in the window, silly!

Until next time. . .
