Wabi Sabi First Date

  This is my first test-drive in the new studio space since moving.  
After nearly 8 months it's good to get back to the bench though felt much like a graceless first date. 
To get reacquainted I pulled out some old familiar bits to dink around with.   

Miscellaneous scraps and leftovers
Honestly, I felt like an awkward teen not sure how to proceed or what to do with my hands.  
It eventually turned out to be a sweet 'first date'.  I like the quiet, wabi sabi-ness and the subtle patina of the copper which doesn't quite come through in the photo 
today's outcome
Oh! - and it's cold out there in that garage!  In my barn-attic studio 
I had a propane heater/blower to knock the edge off the chill. 
At 20-something degrees out there my two little heaters are struggling to catch up.

Bobi, congratulations on your Wabi sabi ~ internal drive to work in your new studio.
You and Felicia are two of the coolest kids!! perhaps at 20 degrees you could have been the coolest!!!

Ha ha patti ;) I am proud of all of you people with such gumption! Airport layovers and 20 degree studio's. I still have a houseful of company that are all leaving tomorrow morning. I had a few days before Christmas hit to completely clean out and organize my studio for this challenge. So I will see you all Monday! I can't wait to see all what you will come up with this year Bobi! Warms ups are good and I am sure I will be feeling the same way come Monday morning.
