Some people say "you're living the dream!" A little cliche maybe. However, days like today I really believe I might be! Green smoothie to start the day with fresh greens from the garden, wave goodbye to husband, reply to some emails, gym workout, some chores round the house, then to the studio to create!
Our property sprawls over a ridge and down into a gully. We have 10 acres and love the peace and quiet that space provides. The studio is a little separate building in the garden with it's own water, power and soon a lovely new deck! It's a little run down as it was left unused for several years after the original owners of this property finished building the house and moved out of the studio. It has some termite damage, is a little 'cobbled together' and has some general age related weathering. It also needs some modifications to make the space more functional as a silversmithing work space. So over the next few months (maybe longer?) my husband has decided to give it a face lift to make it more appealing and more functional.
At my request he is building the new deck entirely from salvaged timber. It is going to look amazing! I'll keep you posted with updates as we go along... And most exciting - at my cousins suggestion - we must have a studio party when it is finished!
