Thanks to Kathleen’s post about Tord Boontje at Target, I left the very dark place I have been in all week and stopped off at Target on my way home from work last night. I am so glad I did. An hour of mindless wondering in the Christmas section did me a world of good. The store displays are worth the visit alone. Thank you, Target for having the design wit to hire Tord and lighten/brighten up your stores with a delicate whimsy that made me want to walk around and just look at the displays! I did finally find the garlands, hidden in the Christmas promotional section, along with the party paper plates and paper napkins.
So in my dark place there is no time to think of fun things. Only work, personal duties, house fallilng apart are filling my thoughts right now. Disappointment in myself, depression, anxiety, anger, envy. Not driving home thinking of what fun thing I can seek out in my house to shoot for Beautiful Sunday or what I should design for our Christmas card. Only I need to get this project done, get the roofing people in, make appointments here and there, get this and that done. There is no WHIMSY in my head! I hate that. So I left Target feeling better, with some fun ideas sprouting up there where the darkness had taken over.
