Lest you think me all work and no play, Ricky and I did attend the Highland Open Studio Tours (HOSTS) event this past Sunday afternoon after brunch at one of our neighborhood dives, I mean diners. The best part of this adventure is we never had to leave our neighborhood.
The first studio we visited belonged is a friend of ours, and I bought this piece of pottery from her bargain table. I plan to use it as a rustic platter.

Among the other venues we visited was the Meadows Museum on the campus of Centenary College where another Highland neighborhood artist had a show. I plan to borrow one of her ideas about creating "idea" scrapbooks of the bits and pieces that people like me tear from magazines and newspapers. The artist pastes her scraps of paper into an existing old book for which she no longer has a use. Her favorite books to recycle in this manner are old typewriter manuals.

So, while I might be overly busy right now, I see some relaxation in my future.
