I find different things to be so inspiring. I love going shopping mostly to see the way colors and textures and patterns are paired and played together (although the fabrics being used to make clothing today is so cheap!!! All polyester...can we go back to real fabric soon?). The other day, it struck me while I was cooking up these vegetables that the colors and patterns and textures I was handing were beautiful too! I'm thinking some little lotus root motifs may be kinda fun and funky things to add to my pots. Not too contrived or perfect, but quirky and unique. Also, colorful food makes me happy.
