its frigid


it is so cold here....today was the worst day we have ever had for sales...only 2.... we had more of us than of them.... the temp was around 0....and it snowed....
so we worked on stuff all day un- interupted.... which was kind of different... one project im working on is tin flowers with lisa, using our antique tin....and big tin signs using our antique tin...so we got quite a bit done on those...

jon stayed busy dealing with a big salvage counter/bar.... its turning out so nice... and huge...
the other project is gathering up the inventory for the coming website.... ,. its in a very confusing spot right now.cant figure out a name yet.....how about the altered magpie? i like that but it would probably be all wrong...like bad taxidermy...and i dont want to turn anyone off....anyway, i am digging out all kinds of cool piles to put on line...
the other project im working on is resetting the mall booth....at borkholders...my car is loaded...

so it was a wierd isolated day...the kind that could send you to the poorhouse....

then it was over and then we, dh and i, jumped into the hot tub , which is outside on the edge of our woods... the snowy beautiful woods...
