The Colors Right In Front of Us for Imagination and Creativity! How Wonderful!

So I found out later I wasn't supposed to be taking photos in this store. oops, too late. I often go to the Market and keep an open mind about all of the things that can inspire and cheer the soul. The colors and smells of these fruits and vegetables and don't forget the flower section. Couldn't this be a grand piece of art? Piled vegies, a woman shopping, a woman working at the counter, a child holding an apple in front of this.....imagine! This is what creativity does for us....it lets us go back to our "child" and take time to imagine instead of always worrying about your grocery list and what you have to make for dinner...though this can be pretty wonderful too, when you are in the mood, you buy something special and you want to create something wonderful to share and enjoy together with someone.

Wow, I think I would have had to sneak my camera into that shop, too. ;-) Beautiful and very inspiring.

This is not necessarily post related but I had to tell you about the "letters" fabric I found. You mentioned when you were here to always keep a look out for some. I thought of you when I saw it. It is Michael Miller Fabrics and called "Lively Letters." The letters are bold bright colors and I thought you'd like it.
