Project New52 -- Guess it's Project New46
After all I'm a little late starting it. But better late than never on improving yourself right?? One of the bummer things about being 40 as opposed to oh say 2, is that there is less "new" to learn. Now now, I know I really don't know that much and there is still plenty to learn, but you kinda have to go out and seek. It's not like learning is forced on you like when you are young. So when Christine (listgirl) and Peppermint rolled this out, I thought sure. Sounds like a cool idea. You can find out more about the project (and these innovative ladies) at their respective blogs: Frick on a Stick and Adventures of ListGirl.
So I'm thinking this post could count right? Naaah. Just kidding. I will learn something new this week and share it. What it is, not sure just yet, lol. And that I leave you with an image:

So it's getting to be that time of year. The time when the white all around me in Minnesota starts to grate on my nerves. It really is lovely and on the one hand I really long for the cool and crisp of winter in about July. But nothing, I mean nothing, makes a flower more beautiful or appreciated than snow on the ground for 3 months. I mean in the summer they are all so common place and competing with everything around it. But in the winter flowers are the unique, the colorful, and so missed.
So today's challenge at the Shutter sisters is color therapy. Now I could totally use this as an excuse to go look at the flowers at Bachmans. But really where we see color most, and the places we most visit in the winter, are places like museums. Fortunately this area is full of them. Recently we escaped to the Minneapolis Institute of Art. It's one of the coolest places on earth I'm sure. Not only does it have tons of cool inspiration from tons of places all over the world, it is also free. Can't get cooler than that!! And the first thing you see when you walk in is this:
Tell me this sun is not glorious. I mean really, almost as glorious as the original. The amount of work and joy that went into this project just literally radiates out.
I SO love this!
That is all. Have a colorful day!
