A few years ago, I went on a tangent, writing quotes on brown paper, tearing them into strips and decoupaging them onto everything from chairs and bookshelves to flower pots. I sold them like crazy at a little specialty shop in the mountains, which sadly no longer exists.
If it did, I'd still be happily up to my elbows in paper and paste.

This is the only flower pot I made for myself.

The quote is from one of my favorite books, Einstein's Dreams, by Alan Lightman, and it reads:

"Time flows more slowly farther from the center of the earth. The effect is miniscule, but it can be measured with extremely sensitive instruments. Once the phenomenon was known, a few people, anxious to stay young, moved to the mountains."
