Feeling the Love From Montana

 Big Game Hunter, TC from Montana {Sweatshop Baby's Grandpa} sent a surprise package today! Holy Cow! I love it!!
 Antlers - he probably found them, not shot them... TC makes beautiful knife handles from antlers.
 More bullet casings to etch and turn into pendants.
Turkey feathers. I have a plan.
Thank you TC! You ROCK!

 I just got back from scoring some lovely vintage goodies. The tin biscuit box has been rebuilt with a wooden box and glass top. Perfect for displaying delicious necklaces.
 This old money drawer will display some dingles to add to your delicious necklace.
 Cool architectural piece for above a door.
 GIANT beveled mirror in an oak frame. I'm hoping Tim will hang it above the table.
Great little camera. Not for me.
Great morning!!

New Work Table

 Tim built a new work table for me. It's just the right size. He's amazing.
The very cool stool is from Moxie Thrift. She's amazing too. Go see the great little green stool she has in her shop.
I'm not sure how I'll finish the table, but I have spread out work and cleaned it back off twice already.
Most of what I've been doing is wholesale orders...lots of wholesale orders for which I am quite thankful.
I even bought new underwear.

He Couldn't Resistor

 I couldn't sleep. Do you know why?
Me either.
So - I went to tinker in my studio. I had some etched copper earring pieces and some resistors I was going to add to the earrings...
...instead I made a bracelet.

Pickles. Pounding. Pendants. Patience.

 The refrigerator is full of Pickles.
 Sisters Jean and Linda spent an afternoon etching, cutting, and Pounding in the Two Dog Pond Studio.
 Pounding while on their knees...
Patience. We signed up with a new internet provider. It's far more reliable than the last, but still I need patience. Something I'm not very good at...
