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!

Great blog. Your art is better than many non-self-taught artists (like me.) I'm even jealous a little. Best of luck, Linda.
