Default My little red choo choo...

Has gone chugging around the bend.
Everywhere I go now, I see stuff that would look awesome as acrylic pen blanks.
My wife & I went to a local church yard sale awhile back.
I saw an old 1960's hanging lamp shade made of glass that was red & yellow swirly stuff.
Last weekend she wanted to go to the fabric store & they had a whole section of material that was hippie cloth.
Psychedelic colors with swirls, swoops, bands, and patterns.

I must be losing it because I see stuff all the time now that would be a mean looking blank.
Anyone else have this problem?

My wife always finds me in the jewelry isle at the Hobby stores.
Looking, dreaming, planning.......

You are not alone but few of us will admit it.
