Some See a Weed, Others See a Table

Some See a Weed, Others See a Table

“Some see a weed, others see a wish,” has also been one of my favourite quotes. The quote shows there are two ways to view dandelions, and it reminds me that there is more than one way to see the world around me. It helps me to make the conscious decision to see the probable in a situation and not just the spoils.

About a month ago, a side table arrived at Community Services Thrift Store. It was one of the older tables I loved with a six-sided top and an intricate wooden stand. I like the ones with character and not just a box with a drawer.

To someone, it was an item to discard. To me, it was beautiful.

The table had been painted white and was chipped. I could have applied another layer and called it good, but I felt like there was more potential there. A wish, if you will.

While I have only started to explore my sketching skills, I decided to turn the hexagon table into a dandelion as if you are looking down on it.

And here is my creative journey:

As I said, some see a weed. Others see a table.

How do you view your world?

  1. Wow! The table design is cool itself, but I love, love, LOVE how your creativity kept flowing to include the wall. Beautiful expression. I feel swept away on the wind by your wish!
