Locked in our office.

Haven’t posted in a long time. Been doing Instagram instead. I really don’t have enough going on in my life to fill up both. Except right now. We’re having some closets redone and we’re shut in the office and one of the few places that doesn’t have workmen in it and is not filled up with closet contents.

The house has stuff on every surface and it’s driving me crazy. I keep want to shut doors that aren’t there and put stuff into closets that are just empty spots. I think we’ll be happy with it in the end if for no other reason that we’ve had to take everything out and are getting rid of a lot of unused stuff as a result.

This has been happening lately. I make a pendant as usual, but days or weeks after it’s made a yellow-brown color starts to permeate the resin. I have no way of knowing why or how this happens; these coins come from other countries and other times. But I have an idea. I see someone who has a silver coin and sets it aside, on dresser or a mantle, or a nightstand. Probably in that dish or vase where all the bits and pieces end up. And it sits there. For years, gathering dust, and smoke, if there’s a smoker in the house. One day the house is purchases by a new family and all of the stuff sitting around gets packed up, sorted sold. And I come along with my resin and wire and disturb the ghost of the guy with the pipe or the lady with her cigarettes.
