7 Interesting Facts
#1 – I love old medical art and dictionaries. From where I am sitting, I can see four of my favorite pieces. I have been blessed with having my great grandfathers medical dictionary – he was a veterinary surgeon.
#2 – The above photo is a preview to the 2nd. I love old books. I have them everywhere throughout my house. Again, these are a collection from my family. It includes classic tales, history, medical, and psychology books.
#3 – I love ephemera and art. Oil paintings and watercolor. Flowers and birds are my favorite. Old business cards (medical mostly), receipts, invoices, stained papers, vintage seed catalogs, architecture prints, and especially typography.
#4 – Hockey! I am a huge fan. Have loved the game since I was young. My favorite team is the Detroit Red Wings. I try to watch every game.
#5 – Spreadsheets and analytical data collection. Formulas, science and compounds, why things work the way they do. I’d be perfectly happy locked away in a medical lab as long as no animals were involved. I’d take them all home and save them 🙂
#6 -Art Supplies: Colored Pencils – Watercolors – Markers – and small art journals make my heart twitterpated.
#7 – Soaps made from botanicals. There is nothing like fine soaps and I collect them like there will be a world shortage. Here is my favorite shop, Formulary 55. It took me longer to write this post because I was on their wonderful site. The packaging is my favorite and causes me to rethink opening the pretty wrapping.
My nominees! No obligation at all because I know some people don’t like these awards and/or struggle for time.
