Where I've been isn't at my new job. Where I've been is outside, making hay. And by hay I mean other stuff that isn't hay at all. I've been painting, sewing, designing, building, creating. Outside. While the sun shines. Furniture is my latest creation kick. The photos are a sampling of my wares. All of the materials I use are salvaged, second hand, or otherwise rescued. Old fence boards headed to the dump, garage sale lawnchair webbing, granny's old fabric stash, builder leftovers from ReStore, etc. I loved building these things, but if you'd love having any of them, let me know. I'd love to make you a deal. If they all sit here, I won't have a reason to make more.
Besides nurturing my creative itch here at the river (and here I thought it was fleas), I've been hanging out a bit up in my hometown Kelso. Stompin' around on my old stompin' grounds Beacon Hill. Two lovely old friends I haven't seen near enough of in the last 16 years, Dick and Sandy Sundquist, were just crazy enough to let me come up with my collection of hammers and start pounding on their house. "Do whatever you want" they say. Love those guys. I'll have to give you a tour of the results in a post or two.
I'd love to stay and chat, but the sun is out and I have some hay to tend to.
