Homefront Artistry Team Meet Up

This sounded like fun so I thought I would give it a try. The Etsy Homefront Artistry Team hosts a Blog Social every 2 and 4/5 Monday. This week Deb posted a series of questions for for followers to answer. The idea is that we all get to know each other a little bit better.
Here goes......

1. Are you an Urban, Suburban, or Rural living fan?
Definitely not suburban. My husband and I have lived right smack in the middle of downtown Atlanta for 20 years and we love it. While I miss having a place to garden I love being able to walk almost everywhere, sometimes a week goes by and I realize that I haven't been in the car once. Ideally a city place with a big patio or private courtyard would be perfect.

2. Do any of the above types of places inspire the creative side of you?
Urban inspires me visually but sometimes causes brain overload. Rural clears my brain so that clear ideas can pop in.

3. If you could live anywhere (jobs and money not a factor), where would you live?
Right off the top of my head I would say Florence, Italy. The food, the art, the people, talk about inspiration! If it was here in the states the selection would be more difficult. Weather would be a big factor. Since we've had several snow storms and Florida is out of the question I guess that leaves California.

When it comes down to it, I could live just about anywhere and be inspired by anything. I think it's in my genetic make-up. All I need is a good fabric store, art supplies a vegetarian restaurant and a coffee shop. Oh...and reliable internet access.

Now it's your turn to participate in the social. Tell them Paula sent you!
Here's a link to the original post.

  1. I am laughing about you clause "internet access" because that would definitely be a deal breaker if I had to live in a rural area. I love your description of Atlanta also; it seems I should add this to my places to visit.

  2. Always wanted to live in NY city. Just for awhile. My husband and I decided that when we retire we will rent a flat in NYC for 6 months to a year. Just for the experience, culture all the good stuff.
