Hello everyone! I've been pretty slack lately I know but I have been super busy with an exciting new venture. We've started action on getting myself a little shop and studio! My old studio is in the process of being pulled down. It was the original old laundry room of the house fully equipped with a copper pot and oven. Unfortunately the framework was all rotten and the building itself was on a dangerous lean. The possums have also made a mess of the roof so we had to pull it down. We are going to re-assemble it in another part of the yard as a cubby house. Something H is very excited about and I must say I'm very proud of how careful he is being so as to not disturb the original charm.
So where will my new studio be you ask? Well, we are going to convert the old garage into a magnificent space just for me (yay!). The side part will become my studio space while the main part of the structure will become my new shop!
It's a lovely part of the yard, at the bottom of the old driveway. There is ALOT of work to do. I have been collecting old lead light windows and doors, cabinets, wallpaper, pressed metal, paint.......the list is never ending! We'll have to dig up the driveway and clean up the garden surrounding it too. The old shed is right next to our orchard so it will be lovely once it's all finished. I can't wait!!
So, this is what I have been up to which hopefully explains why I've been off the radar. I have mentioned before that I'm no longer participating in the big markets or shows. My heart is at home and I'm extremely blessed that I have this option. I may not get as much exposure from it but at least I'll be happy (I get too stressed out getting ready for the markets!)
I have some more to tell you but I'll leave it there for now.
Have a lovely day!
P.S. Yes, that is a "dinky di dunny" complete with the trademark red backs, we have to fix that up too! x
