RISD Alumni Art Show







I always thought it would have been so much fun to go to RISD (Rhode Island School of Design). I can picture myself walking down halls smelling of oil paint and taking one creative class after the next. If I had only known then what my calling was! 

This weekend, RISD is having an Alumni Art Sale on May 2 from 10-4 featuring thousands of items designed and created by alumni from all over the country and the world. My sister who lives on Cape Cod suggested that we meet up in Providence and attend...but it's just a little too far away for my energy level right now...alas. (Jake has been getting a new tooth which is causing him to wake up crying every hour=tired mamamamama)

Don't you just love that hanging lamp made up of little drink umbrellas?

I feel the same way -- I wish I'd known what my calling was back when I sent in my university application. I'm thinking of taking some night classes in interior decorating.... it's never too late, right?!

The drink umbrella light fixture IS cool!!
