Happy Sunday Salon everyone. It’s been a while since I had the chance to participate but here I am today.
The trip to Austin was a quick one but oh what fun. Aside from doing a bit of wandering around the South Austin area, where it’s filled with an eclectic mix of shops and restaurants, we also went to the Austin Museum of Art to see the exhibit on New Art in Austin. My favorite pieces were from Alyson Fox who used old books for her art. She stripped the books of the pages and then made some illustrations on covers. You can see more on each of the artists by checking out the interactive website.
We also spent a couple of hours hanging out in BookPeople. Aside from a wonderful selection of books, they also have some great gift items. I fell in love with a few pieces from the Flash Fiction Gems, jewelry with a story behind it. How clever is that?
Of course I added more books to my wish list and bought a book but I’m going tell you about that in another post. Right now I have to get ready to go have lunch with a friend, and then I have a 50% Off coupon to use at Half Price Books. Can’t let that go to waste. So hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday.
