Friday's weather was beautiful, finally, and, although I should be focusing on making work for a big big show I'm hoping I get called off the waiting list for in a couple weeks, I decided I just had to go picking. Soon the mosquitos, ticks, wasps, bees, and snakes are going to come out with a vengence, not to mention the poison ivy. Even though I've been taught a thing or two by that angry, itchy mistress, being able to recognize her isn't one of them.
So, I hit four of the seven shed/barns, and found some good stuff. This week was mostly about coffee cans, but there was a good showing by pulleys, glass bottles, building components, and a few family letters.
There is so much more from this trip, but I'm going to wait to parse it out. Gotta pick my battles. Next week is about making!
