Do not run through life
so fast that you forget
not only where you have been,
but also where you are going.

Happy New Year. Relaxing a bit since Christmas week, and taking a stroll down memory lane with my 2011 reviews, allowed me to focus on why I started blogging. I wanted to share my experience, and create a journal. I was reminded of my true passions, and gave a lot of thought to where I wanted to go in 2012. It's going to be a busy year, but I'll be taking chill breaks to maintain my perspective. So, as I chill a bit more tonight, I wanted to share a simple vignette I put together with garage sale finds.
Do you know what these are?
I didn't think about what their original function was when I purchased them, but they are vintage graters.
I knew right away what I wanted to do with them though.
Look at the really cool shadows they create.
I have a piece of foil protecting the base.
They now reside on the desk next to my front door. With my vintage mirror behind them, they look so peaceful.
Even more so in the dark.
I'll be back with redesigns, finds, tutorials, and more. Lot's of fun stuff coming up.
