Lion Days and Lamb Days

 We took Wesley shopping today to find props for the film she is shooting next week, and I found these.
It seems like I hardly get one thing finished and I'm looking down the road at the next thing I want to make. These are cast iron and are going to be on my next houses. Just look at the rust and the shapes, oh God, I love these things. How will I part with them......
 I know this is pathetic, but I am finding myself very influenced by the architecture in Skyrim (my new xbox obsession, if you are a new reader). We saw a table full of daggers next to these finials, and I actually reached for one, thinking I needed it for battle, then I remembered I didn't actually do battle in real life, haha! But those daggers were really cool !
 These ladies are waiting for homes, so I'll finish them up before I start anything else, but I already can't wait to see how the finials are going to look. These dolls look like porcelain corpses, don't they.......


Today we heard a little boy ask his mother if it was a lion day or a lamb day. I love the image of that. It was windy and chilly so she told him it was a lion day. I like that it was a lion day today.....
I drafted a long nasty blog last night for those of you that keep reading those, but I changed my mind. The title of the post was Mind Vomit. You know how it is when you have eaten some shit and you know you have to vomit to feel better, but you just keep pretending you aren't going to .... that's how my mind feels. I have a nagging thing in my head like a mosquito buzzing and I know I would feel better if I would just get it over with and say something. But I am trying to be more mature and rise above the bullshit that sometimes flows my way, so I'm holding back the mind vomit. I have decided for now to be positive and professional and take a pause before I say things I regret later. Let's see how long this lasts :)
Tomorrow will be a lamb day, Sunday, Wesley's last day home, coffee, breakfast, sunshine, sloth behavior, ahhhhhh......

These rusty bits are just fabolous, how lucky you are to find these, I think there is more good stuff to find in the USA than here in Australia. Very lucky indeed.

Life has plenty of injustices and as mature responsible adults we need to deal with them blah, blah, blah .... Well that's what I taught my kids and my students anyway.In practice, sometimes we need that cathartic moment to be able to move on.As long as it's not about me go ahead and let it out.Love the iron.

I know Laura, when I looked at the photo I thought she looked like she was going to dive off :)
The iron guy is a trip!
Yeah, Hollis, those daggers will stab you in the back haha!
Suzi, too funny. Wesley called me padawan yesterday, ha!
Mieke, yeah, Americans can collect some junk!
Dennis, who could ever say anything nasty about YOU!

I like the image of all the dolls in a row, sort of haunting...
i think i would have to press those iron pieces into clay just in case i wanted to make molds or stamps of the late. then again, perhaps it's good to let go of stuff!

Hannah said...

Hey Tracey, look forward to what you do with the finials.
It's good to have a rant every now and again, get it out of your system I reckon.

Hey Michele, good idea, I always forget to make molds and then wish I had when it's too late. Hey Hannah, you are so right, but I should give maturity a go just for a minute, haha!
