This week is dedicated to the imagination of the fine artisans who find an item discarded along the road or in a dusty garage and sees it as something that just needs a little TLC to make it useful again or sees something else entirely different when they study it. Creating a new piece of art, a bird feeder, a table setting, a clock out of old pieces of “junk” takes a lot of talent. I applaud you all, loudly, for your efforts in creating and restoring the things I’ve found to share here this week. Take a look!

Can’t wait for the Compilation to see the Daily Design Picks I find? Head on over to tumblr and follow me there. Each day I pick something from Etsy relating to the theme for the week. It’s still fun to see them all together shared here in a photo blog each Saturday. Often they look really terrific together and compliment each other well. Remember, tomorrow begins a new theme and a whole new week of great finds selected for “Eye for Design and Color”.

Have a creative weekend!

Stay peaceful.
