There is Art Everywhere...

Today was one of those all-around great days.
Look what I found staring up at me while I paid the cashier at the Russian supermarket this morning.
These are actual chocolate bar wrappers!
How beautiful are they? I was so struck by that girl's face.
You get two treats for the price of one...chocolate and the pretty picture.
Sorry about the tags. Couldn't find any without the prices!

Later this afternoon we were blessed with a wonderful piano concert performed by the amazingly talented and very lovely Celeste Lederer.
She played so many beautiful pieces of classical music- Bach, Mozart, Chopin, Debussy, & Beethoven.
Then we were treated to some good ol' fashioned ragtime.
Loved it all.
My girl however, fell asleep on her daddy's lap after the first
three songs!

There was a late-lunch, a trip to the crafts store to
buy some yarn for another crochet handbag, and then the
mandatory "walk through" at Toys R Us.
I couldn't help myself.
Still a sucker for Smurfs.

It was a really nice day. I needed it after the all-consuming
weeks I've been having.
Tomorrow, we are off to the city to take care of taxes and hopefully
catch this amazing show at the Cooper Hewitt Museum.
I have been influenced lately by the colors and patterns Sonia Delaunay used in her
work. She has been inspiring many of my
recent crochet projects, too.
