Art in Waiting

I'm currently in the process of getting art and trying to decide which walls to put it on (as I throw away old stuff from my childhood and sort through clutter). The end result, will be an elegant and nicely done apartment. When (if ever) I reach that point is another question... but I will keep pushing in that direction anyhow. I also need furniture... but how does one shop for furniture when the stores are open mostly when one also has to be at work?

I decided to pull what I have together and make my background for my monthly Jane Austen skype conference nicer. Usually I haven't really bothered, but I thought I should work on this a bit... this is in effect inspiration towards the future... not exactly where I want to be yet, but continuing to encourage myself one step at a time.

From left to right: Bible, group photograph from Jane Austen Festival in Bath in 2009, Pride and Prejudice, portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, tealight candles, Portrait of the Young Girl Reading (Jean-Honore Fragonard), and a debate award from college. A tad bit random, but fun, nonetheless. :)
Striking a pose :)
