I strongly believe in taking care of oneself as a way of sustaining creativity. Keeping a go-to list of “things that feed your soul” and regularly using it can help maintain ones artistic battery. One item on my list, well okay two items, is cooking food and listening to music. So I also strongly believe that music belongs in the kitchen and dining room. Belongs there loudly.
Luckily I now live in a part of the country where I have friends who both play musical instruments and cook! I also now live in a city that holds music concerts in the park – a park ringed with food carts, restaurants and pubs/breweries – all of them cooking something that smells delicious. Picnics are often brought to these park concerts – baskets full of mouth-watering food and wine or beer.
To celebrate this music-plus-food life I’ve created some tea towels and dinner napkins with a music motif.
Now I’ll give you three guesses as to what I’m happily doing this evening.
Oh, and here are the direct links to information about the above pictured tea towels and napkins:
