So... How was your July Fourth?
For once, we had no plans, no commitments... J played golf in the morning, and I stayed home and tackled a 'long-brewing project'...Simple enough. I have a 'few' sweater clips/guards on their original cards or on packaging giving their history, that I have been wanting to make a display board for.
|How sweet is this note?!|
|(Shara ~ I had to show this photo for The Bean!!)|
I've had the frame tucked away for quite a while (J pressure washed it for me Summer 2011 after I garbage picked it!!), just needed to renail a few boards on the back & add a hanging wire - oh and one other little thing...
Add corks for a 'tackable backer'. We live in the FINGER LAKES of New York State - IE: the heart of Wine Country, and I have been saving these babies as souvenirs from special trips since I moved here in '87... I had a LOT of CORKS... (I thought that I had about a Bazillion corks saved up, well apparently, it is going to take about THREE Bazillion !!!! (I have 247+/- in place already!) I was originally going for 'the natural, local winery corks with cool graphics only - but now I'll take whatever I can get (kinda like life !!) - synthetics, imports, plains, broken ones...)
I have put out an 'All-Points' request to friends with 'connections' (IE: bartenders, winery tasters, liquor distributors, etc...) - so, 'barring' (pun intended) any other unforeseen technical difficulties I shall soon have a photo of a finished result to show you!
