now i remember another reason i stopped blogging...i have been dickering around with trying to upload 2 photos with links and captions for longer than i should.  much easier to just do it elsewhere.
lets try again....

industrial salvage decor
as i said, i upped the ante a bit on the utensil holders.  when i find a beautiful pipe i am not opposed to making the original simple pencil holders but now that i am in the green a bit more i am inclined to have the machine shop cut me metal discs for the bottoms (i monster weld them to inside/bottoms)  this also enables me to weld it where i want in the pipe giving the illusion of a very tall/deep utensil holder when in fact the disc is 4" down so the pencils do not get swallowed up in pipe abyss.

 And my newest ones are fun!  There is a space underneath them with another small pipe for storage of keys/money/usb cards or whatever you want to have out but hidden from view.  I have one in red/brown and blue brown.

pencil cups with mini catch all dishes that fit underneath for hiding stuff

so there you have it.  i have spent 20 minutes doing something over and over again because photos kept jumping around or blogger giving me errors.  perhaps blogging is dead lol.
anyhow.  back to work!
