This cupboard is one of the many storage cupboards I have for all my things. It lives outside, under cover on our patio. For a few years now, it has needed sorting... just so I can find stuff!!!
I managed to get the top and 2nd from bottom shelves done ~ yay! The top shelf was hiding so many new paint brushes, palettes, pastels and paints!
Check out all the palettes I found!
The colours and textures of the old paint ~ some oils, some acrylics ~ were so pleasing to my eye
That green just screams "happy happy joy joy!" to me!
And my pastels ~ which are basically fancy chalks.... oh I love them....
I haven't used them in such a long time. I used to use them all the time, but then moved onto acrylics and never seemed to get back to the pastels. They tend to make my hands really rough and grotty no matter how much I scrub.... but I am missing them...(see here for how messy they can get!)
Don't you just love their crumbly beautiful texture and the gorgeous shades?
So even though it was an ugly job, sorting and organising that top shelf, at least there was some happy colour to brighten my day, and some inspiration to get me started using pastels again.
Have a lovely weekend!
PS. In case you are wondering, I saw New Moon the morning it came out, and I loooooooved it! If you're a fan and haven't seen it, what are you waiting for?!! I'm going back, at least another two times... at least!
