Book Club: chapter 5


This past week one of our challenges in the Artist's Way was to name the top 10 items you want. Some of my items may not be items at all, but I still want them. Some of my list is practical although most is not. I shall admire all my lovelies from afar. What would be your top items that you would want when money is no object?

1. A dress
2. A beach house
3. A new rug or two
4. A steam mop
5. A Barcelona Chair
6. A bike with a basket
7. A pretty necklace
8. A mid century modern house
9. A serger
10. A wooden cake stand

I also finally went on an artists date over the weekend. Our town was having a historical home and garden tours. I was the youngest person out there by atleast 30 plus years. I had fun though.

This week we read chapter 6.

I love that necklace! I recently bought a black Michelle Jank one (Australian Designer)... They are gorgeous like this one :)

Its funny how we get more practical as we get older...when I was a younger I would never want a steam mop, but now that is quite a luxury item:)

I love that dress and the necklace...My pick would be a digital SLR camera!

What a wonderful list! I would love a cake stand too and I have been admiring that antro necklace. Today I am very much wishing for a new nice camera--really anything better than my iphone would be lovely.

I want to have a little lake house where I can take the fam on weekends to just get away... nothing too fancy, just a simple place to escape a couple hours away from reality.

I definitely want some new rugs in my house too and it's one of the things I wrote for my list. If I would have known about your book club I would have waited and joined in with all of you! I'm starting Chapter 8 now. I'm not so good at always doing my morning pages and artist dates, but it's not something I beat myself up about.

I just would not even know where to begin! I love your picks though.

Haha, I remember that cake stand (from a post a while ago, right?). Still gorgeous.

Hi Paula, my name is Paula too and I came across your wonderful blog some time ago. Last year my friend Patrick recommended this book to me but I never thought about actually going through it until I read that you were.

I think that I got to the point where I figured, okay - I think it's time.

So thanks for posting your progress, it's very encouraging.
