Today I experienced American ingenuity at its best. At the Brimfield antique show, we indulged ourselves in smorgasbord of cultural Americana. The range of antiques, crafts and oddities were such pleasure breathe in, that I completely forgot about my allergies. I ran to the ATM taking out the largest amount possible as I armed myself with enough cash to buy an antique store. As my friend and I wandered around, we saw so much that we liked that we became overwhelmed. Our attention would often be diverted from one booth to another like over-sugared kids in a candy store. My creativity went into overdrive, as I thought of all the projects I could jump into. It was a creative bonanza that sent you home with your mind reeling with possibilities. Amusingly, we returned home with nothing in our hands but some sugared nuts and some kettlekorn. While our hands were empty, our minds were filled with ideas of what we could craft, build, sew, photograph and design. We also came home with our laugh-meter fully topped off. Today’s miracle came in a jam-packed bundle of inspiration that will last for many days to come.
