Back in the Day

Sometimes I see designs and artwork and I think - wow! How new, refreshing, pretty, etc. that is! But then I see things like below and realize how new it's not.

This was made in 1671....so these designs are quite old. It makes me realize that people don't always reinvent the wheel (like they think). It is good to come out with new things, but I think we have a lot to learn from the past in so many aspects. 

On another note, I'm gearing up for Friday's event and I'm stoked (you can read about what I'm doing here). I have decided to hang up a bunch of scarves as the background--I think that will be colorful and relevant to the culture. We'll see how it goes!

Hope you're having a good week. Can't believe it's already Wednesday.
