Three Days.....

I took advantage of the beautiful warm fall days we are having, and I gave my studio a massive cleaning for the past three days. I took EVERYTHING out. I have washed, painted, cleaned everything, even the door and windows. My hands hurt, my back hurts, but thank goodness I don't have a lot of last minute work to make. I do have a kiln to fire tomorrow and one more batch of raku stars to do, but I seem to be in pretty good shape for the upcoming CDCG show and the studio tour.
I have no idea if I have made enough work, but it is what it is, if you want something, better come on out!
 What a mess.......


At least the weather has cooperated and it has been really nice to work outside without rain and cold. Every morning the sun lights up this orange tree and it looks like it's on fire, so pretty.
I am sort of in tunnel vision mode right now, lots that I could blog about, but I just don't feel like putting all my thoughts together, so maybe another day. Just wanted to check in and say hi, let you know what's going on here in Chapel Hill!

 THANK YOU to all of the Veterans out there as we celebrate Veteran's Day this weekend.
I was going to post a photo of my dad in his sailor uniform and say a big hello to him, but I'm just too tired right now. Maybe later......
Have a great week, everyone!

cleaning feels so good. remember when you could be a slob and not worry about it? Now nothing feels better then when life is organized.

I love this weather...

Sandy that is so funny! That photo was published all over the world, Gerry got more play on it than anything he has ever shot!
Meredith, oh yes the slob days, when I couldn't even get into my bedroom for all of the clothes on the floor! Remember those days?

I am envious of your clean studio! It always feels good to go to work in an organized space.
... and this weather!!!!!

Tracey Broome said...

Michele, it had to be done! And the weather gave me the nudge I needed, who would want to be indoors these days?!

Lori Buff said...

Oh, can you come and clean mine? I've got my open studio sale coming up and just can't seem to get it cleaned well. Ha.
Yours looks great.
