get it

i get it now.  i get the project thing and i get what i need to do.  i need to NOT do this particular kickstarter project because it really isn't a 'project'.  and i needed to feel excited and ready to do this thing and i didn't.  the more i read the letter a kickstarter staffperson sent me when i brought up my dilemma the more i see i will need to do something else.

and i now have given myself permission to let go of this and look forward to something else that IS kickstarter worthy.  and that wont be until after the holidays so i have time to work on this 'new thing' and take the proper time that i need to do it right. 

so.  its all about the vases and flowers this month and december i hope to start some prototypes of my new idea, present them to you guys and see if they are a hit.  if so, i'm all over kickstarter after the new year! i'm glad i allowed myself to not do something that i was feeling trepidation about.  it was uncomfortable and as always you really do wonder if you are being a puss.  i think based on how i feel right now, i was being true to myself.  thats a good thing.

Absolutely. Learning when to let go is as important as learning what to start and see through.

Gut feelings are usually accurate so I'm sure you have done the right thing Paula. In the new year you will find you have been subconsciously (and consciously) mulling over things and will have a good idea of how to go about it. This happens to me time and time again.

Friday New Art Finds.  ha.  I'm posting it early because my blog needs something on it other than ME.   I present to you Louis Pons.  Born in Marseilles, France in 1927 and apparently still going strong.  I have little to no information on this artist, he appears to be elusive on the net.  I recently watched a strange little movie called 'The Gleaners and I' by Agnus Varda.  She had a blip on him and I set to searching for images or information online only to come up with a small wikipedia blip and a few sites containing his work.
No matter, it's enough just to see his work.  This site if you translate it, appears to have the most information of any:
Primary studies at Marseilles, school of the Carthusian monks.
School of the Trades, Endoume, Marseilles. He learns the trade from fitter bu…

dairy delight

I was perusing craigslist and saw this:

Disassembling antique barn..
All interior components that ran dairy farm.
Silo made from Ceramic Blocks. Many different uses for the ceramic blocks.
2 sets Hay hooks.
Cow stantion.
Watering bowls.
Cow dividers.
Louden Hay Dryer app. 1940's
Block and Tackle Pulleys

I started SALIVATING. I checked the site out they linked to and saw it was an antique type store/house and worried they might be off the charts expensive. Not even sure they had what I want, but those clocks and hay shelves I made from the watering bowls and hay dryer equipment are to me, precious materials and I want MORE even if I have to buy them. I'm starting to get excited, so far the emails come back saying yes, they are those bowls that I want. Yes, the picture I emailed showing the hay things I have are indeed what he has. He has about FORTY of the cow bowls at a price I can live with, my one concern is they aren't rusty or crusty enough since the ones I…
