Architechtural molds

The weekend was spent working in my yard and garden and come Monday I was pretty tired and not wanting to expend any  more physical energy on housework, so I took myself out to an Estate Auction in Cropsyville.  I had never been to this particular auction house and was surprised by how small and quaint it was.  But it turned out in my favor as the prices were extremely cheap.  Some items like a country painted table they couldn't even sell and put it  aside for some other sale.  Not even $2.00.  Of course I wanted it as a work table but have NO room right now for such things.  But I did decide I had to have these Architectural molds?  I believe that's what they are.  I haven't figured out just yet how I am going to use them but they certainly offer many possibilities. 

Should any of my blog buddies or local artist friends want to use them I will certainly let you borrow  and maybe even give me some inspiration.  Believe me the first box I bid on I got for a measly $5.00 which I thought was a dream.  The second and third I had a bidder against me (or a house shill) and had to pay a little more for, but really, they will be useful for years to come I hope. 

So now my job is to straighten out my house so that I will be inspired to move into my craft room that I have not worked in in over a month and start creating again.

Have been checking others blogs and you all are so talented and fun to look at.  I love what you all do
and it will motivate me to do more as time goes on.

  I seem to be getting used to Gary not being here although I miss him so much.  I know he would be happy with the progress I am making at rebuilding my life and home to suit my needs.  I am so grateful to my friends who are behind me in this new life. I hope that you find some time to find some treasures to play with.

  2. Well my friend; you've been on a treasure hunt and these molds are certainly falling into that category! WOW! Awesome. I can see clay pressed into them, tracings, rubbings! I'm catching up with Blogs, today, as today I have declared a "me" day. I'm journaling and blogging. I had fun with Sophia all week; she's a great sleep aid! :) Thinking of you always - is it August yet? xxoo Marilyn
