It's been an interesting week and this is what I have learned. First, there is almost nothing that doesn't eventually end up in a thrift shop. Last summer when we were redecorating the apartment we looked high and low for a round table no more than 32 inches in diameter. We almost bought a repro piece that was stupid expensive but I backed away because I was sure the real deal would come to us from a junk shop cheap. Finally gave up in the fall when we found a nice old harvest table. Wednesday I walked into Sally Ann and there it was, the EXACT table we were looking for $54.99. It was gorgeous but there is no room for it now so I walked on by. I probably should have bought it anyway but Daniel would have objected to being unable to get into the apartment, wah, wah, he's so unreasonable sometimes. Oh well, I left there kind of chuckling because of course you always find what you need when you don't need it anymore, it is the way of thrift shops. From there I went to the pottery studio to pack my bits for the last time because I decided not to renew my membership for next month. Much as I enjoyed getting muddy again it was difficult to arrange time to be there and I really wasn't producing anything worthwhile. In fact I was really just playing and the only thing I really liked enough to keep was a series of terracotta spoons that have absolutely no practical purpose.
