The Saga of the Green Pastel

Sketch was open during Winter Walk, I shouldn't even have to mention that we went there.
First, if I remember correctly.

The wonderful thing about Sketch is that they carry open stock Diane Townsend pastels.  That's because Diane lives in Hudson.  I would really love to meet her one day.

So of course I went straight over to the open stock.
Immediately, I saw this really fantastic perfect green pastel.

Look at it.


However, I decided to STAY STRONG.  I told myself that I probably have that color in my (large) pastel collection. I didn't really need it. So I took that picture so I could remember it and stare at it.

On Sunday, we went out for brunch and local shopping.
When I had made all my mandatory stops (Verdigris, Savor the Taste, Tradewinds), I told Dru that I had fulfilled my Hudson Destiny.
I felt good.


That green pastel.
I could not get it out of my mind.
I needed it after all.

Hey, I held strong for about 18 hours.

So I exceeded my Hudson Destiny and got the green pastel.
I also got 7 friends for it because I didn't want it to get lonely during travel.
The more the merrier, right...?


  1. I think it's good that you took some time to think about it... it wasn't a splurge... Most of us splurge without thinking... have a great week xox ♡♡

  2. I hope Green's shiny friends survived the journey. :)

  3. Ho Ho Ho... Of course you needed that green and the green needed those friends. Everyone needs friends.

  4. Visit me in Hudson next time!

  5. Great color. Hope you have a lot of fun with it.


Thanks for stopping by!
