I like to keep a bowl of tumbled and polished stones in my workshop.
Rather than keeping them stored away, it's great to have them right on
my workbench where I can see them. Sometimes their colors or shapes
will inspire a new project. Because I'm a visual person and am often
inspired by what I see, I try to keep beautiful things around me, especially
when I'm designing and working. It's a great practice for keeping those
creative juices flowing.
Mind you I said beautiful, not expensive. Some of the things I find the most
beautiful are rusty and old. As they say, it's in the eye of the beholder.
I hope you have a great week
