No, it’s not Halloween, just getting to the bottom of the year long clearing out process.
Between the studio (which needs a gutting due to prolonged roof leaking) and the wood shop, which has been mostly emptied but still has a ways to go, to the yard, where only the rusty bits I like are left, it’s been an adventure. A lot of potluck boxes, fabrics, fibers, threads, etc. have been added to my store page. Now we are looking at different materials.
All the tools that I can’t use are gone, a lot has gone to salvage, a box is being put together for the H for H Re-Store, and now the real treasures are emerging from the bottom of boxes, bins and drawers.
Now, some of you will not see the value in any of this but there’s more than I can use, and who in their right mind would pay mega bucks for slickly prepackaged replicas from a clever marketer. (Well, I have, and so have some of you, but these are real, have substance and history and would welcome new homes.)
I think my DH saved, collected or acquired, literally, thousands of keys. Then there are the various washers, interesting small gear shaped things and more. Collage artists use these, mixed media artists use these, book artists use these. Rather than send them to salvage, I am pleased to pack them up and make them available to you.

Additional interesting bits are being added daily. Thanks for visiting!
