What else have we done besides move? Part 1
Well, a craft project.
Renata, the woman who moved from down here made a great show (more than one time) of taking me around her half lit/fully shuttered apartment showing me things that she was going to ‘leave for me’. Some of which included a sofa! Really could have used that. A toaster oven, had no desire for that. The fireplace set, and on and on. I murmured encouraging phrases to all of these. Somehow when the great move came (a two parter as you might recall) I received none of these things. But she did leave behind a lot of little almost ‘American country’ types of things. None of which I wanted. Most of those I packed up and took to my favorite resale place. And they happily took them.
I did keep some framed pictures. So one rainy day, when I was tired of pushing furniture around and unpacking boxes I decided that I would do something fun instead. And I made this…
An actual cork board.
I have always wanted one of these when I saw them in shops but I would never buy one because I thought they were over priced. Now I know why, this took over 8 hours to make. And that does not count wine drinking time! It is just hard to cut those corks. I guess if you did it for resale you might have better craft knives but I didn’t. Anyway it is made, the frame was free, somehow I accumulated corks and the glue cost 6 Euros. And I am happy with it.
