I seem to have gone missing from the page. It’s amazing how time can slip away when you’re not looking. It’s a good thing though. I’ve been busy writing, getting to know our new home, and nesting as best one can do in an empty space.
We are enjoying our little village where we live, right across the harbor from the city center. A couple weekends ago, Balmain had two events scheduled that we wanted to attend. One was an open artist studio tour, and the other was Second Hand Saturday, a group of garage sales all over town. We looked at the maps for both the events and plotted out where we wanted to go: a few art studios, and along the way maybe we’d find a couple more dining room chairs to carry home.
The open studio tour was aptly named LOST (Leichhardt Open Studio Tour) because get lost is pretty much what we did. Not exactly lost, but distracted like we do. We did have a great time wandering around, discovering gorgeous parks just steps away from where we live.
We kept walking and pretty soon we found this one. I couldn’t get it to show up in the photo, but he looked like he had a golden clasp right there in the middle of him. He resembled an expensive gold and enamel brooch.
The only thing on the L.O.S.T. list we got to was this demonstration of street art in the making. I’m sure these three are future spray can enthusiasts. We never did find a garage sale. We spent too much time with the spiders!
