I am getting ready to go to the Catskills, and started to write a depressing flood-recovery post, but who needs that? So instead, I introduce you to the gypsy punk band Gogol Bordello. My oldest son drove to Burlington, Vermont last night to visit my youngest, who took him to see this band:
Gogol Bordello's founder moved to Burlington from the Ukraine in the early 1990's when he was a teenager. Now he tours internationally. My tastes in music are more gypsy than punk, but I love the energy and creativity. These days I look for creative inspiration everywhere. The other day I got some from a post by Jane at Small But Charming. I was looking at the contrasting flowers in a bouquet she made, and thinking about how I might apply that to my store. If I could create a bouquet that represented my store, or what I would like my store to be, what would be in it? I don't have an answer yet, but am enjoying the concept. Thanks, Jane for the inspiration.
Enjoy your weekend--
