We had rain all day last Saturday in Denton. It was particularly heavy in the morning when the set-up for Arts & Autos was taking place. I was not much inclined to drag all my stuff out in the rain and risk getting my craft items water damaged, especially considering that I sold only one or two items last year when the sun was out all day. So we stayed home. I spent most of the day finishing the cedar sofa table for our cabin...which I will take down there tomorrow. It is still in need of several coats of finish. (Photos soon to follow)
In the last week I have completed several new items. First, I located a small Lexus logo to complete the matched set of mesquite Toyota/Lexus clock blocks.
And speaking of fanatics, a couple years ago I met a fellow who is a Rambler-AMC fan. I did a couple of commissions for him. Recently I stumbled onto an eBay seller who had two vintage Rambler hub caps. One does not encounter Rambler/AMC stuff frequently, so I made an offer that was accepted and I now have two early Rambler hubcap clocks.
Otherwise, I have been working on a backlog of ornaments in my shop, including several duplicates that I acquired at prices I just couldn't pass up. Particularly a 1941 Buick hood ornament with five holes drilled in the top. I already had '41 Buick ornament with two holes in the top. It was not unusual for people to obtain a fancy ornament (like a Packard cormorant) and bolt it to the top of the ornament that came on their Buick or Ford. So that is what I did with this duplicate '41 Buick hood ornament.
I am still trying new show venues to find those that provide the most effective exposure for my works.
