Treasure Tuesday :: of prints, pizza, and purse paraphernalia

7.29.14

Welcome to Treasure Tuesday! This is a series conceived by Greenthumb and interpreted by me.

Although her protocol is for participants to take all their pictures to her prompts and publish them in a single post, I’m going to break mine down in bite-sized portions.

Just because.

Yay, summer!

Presenting July’s final installment:

 

On the wall: I have owned this print since college when I finally got a place of my own – no sisters, no roommates, no significant others – and I felt like such a grown up so I had to buy “real” art. I had no idea who Kandinsky was at the time but I fell in love with the colors and circles. Plus, it was a mere $50 framed from Z Gallerie. Nowadays, I believe this print is ubiquitous to anyone who’s into modern art and my hubs wants me to get rid of it because it’s “college dorm-y”, but I think it’s so reflective of my style persona right now that I think I’ll hang onto it for a bit longer.

Dough: This was actually the last pic I took of the 12 this month because it gave me the hardest time. I don’t bake so “dough” was not something easily accessible at Casa de Edwards. I was gonna go interpretative and just snap a pic of money because dough, but then came the week of being the Kool-Aid house. At least, that’s the term my hubs uses to describe the one house in the neighborhood that all the kids come to to play. And that’s when Little Caesar’s pizza become my hero. Five bucks a pie? Yes, please.

In your bag: In the summer, I strip it down to the essentials. And the older I get, the more spare I can be. I’m all good with my trusty water bottle, the Coach wallet that I bought at an outlet mall over fifteen years ago, my EOS Strawberry Sorbet lip balm (replaced by Urban Decay lippies during the school year), and my journal (which is normally my novel du jour but ever since I started writing again, I can’t read other people’s stuff). The only thing missing is my iPhone but that’s what I’d used to take this pic.

    • Don’t feel bad – being the Kool-aid house is no laughing matter. I get eaten out of house and home and I don’t know how to say no without sounding like the world’s worst you-know-what. :/

  1. I like the Kadinsky print – it’s so colorful, it would brighten any room. I have a large watercolor painted by an old boyfriend. He also matted and framed it, and I think it’s nice but my husband doesn’t like it. He says it looks too corporate the way it’s matted. Maybe I should change the mat and see if he still hates it!

    You’re the Kool mom!

  2. Let me get this straight, you can’t read other books while you are in the process of writing yours?? That seems crazy to me because I don’t know if I could live without reading (maybe I’m being a bit dramatic). In any case, this might be because I don’t have the strong desire to write a novel myself.

    • I can’t live without reading either, but I do find my writing vice highly influenced by what I read so I refrain from doing one concurrently with the other.

  3. Ha ha! I also still have the first framed print from my first real apartment hanging in my current home. It’s Hokosai’s “Wave Off Kanagawa.” Pretty mundane, and I can’t say that it necessarily reflects my personal style today, but I just can’t let it go. There’s even a crack in the glass, but I still have it hanging up in a spare bathroom. Guests sometimes comment on the cracked glass and then I have a great story to tell about the time a couple of guys got in to a fight in my apartment, way back when.

    • Thank you. I think I shall! I have the perfect alternate wall for it too if he really wants to “man cave” the study where it’s currently hung. (He wants all 7 of his guitars up on display; now who’s in a college dorm, eh?)

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
