Last month we were still having some cool weather so the wood stove was humming. No sense wasting all that heat... up near the ceiling is a great spot to dry heavy wool socks.
John cut some shelving for a skinny closet we made and here I'm varnishing them a few times. Luckily the floors are still unfinished so no worries of any drips.
In order to save as much space as possible we hung 3 old solid wood doors on sliding barn door rollers. After we cut the extending bolts shorter and gave it 2 coats of top coat paint. One door each for my studio, John's studio and the storage room.
we built wall to wall bookshelves at the end of the kitchen/LR... put them up on a platform that we fitted with electrical outlets.
Just finishing the last one and it's about ready to be stood up.
have the tops on now and prepping to varnish
note to remember for next time... do not keep tea cup beside paint can.. almost stuck my brush in there more than once..
Below are a few pair of earrings that were sent out to customers during the last while.
Fresh Water Pearl and Sterling textured dome
Balls of Yarn earrings in Copper
Sterling Wrapped forged Copper
Sterling Wrapped Amethyst on handmade spiral earwires
Cat and Kitten
When we moved last fall... I purged much... gave away a Kenmore machine, exactly this 1968 model, to my daughter ... gave away 9 others too... but somehow, as fate would have it... someone posted this on Kijiji and now it's sitting on my desk
She just needed some cleaning and oiling... She weighs a ton and sews a very fine seam.
All the snow has finally gone and popping up in an area of grass that is all but ignored is a cheery patch of Crocus. What a happy surprise... Just love them.. Now just waiting for the grass to green up..
