I know this comment is slightly late, but I didn’t have the opportunity to write anything yesterday. I just wanted to share how perfectly WONDERFUL these images are! My father was a carpenter while I was growing up, and we had a wood shop in our backyard where he would work during the days. I used to go out and visit him several times during the day, and I would do everything from play with the shavings and extra wood to give him pictures to “decorate” his shop with. I even remember a couple of clown ones!
This image is so busy… but wonderfully nostalgic. <3
Wonderful! It is refreshing to see this blog include some new concepts. It is pleasing to see that you and your readers appreciate and understand the joys of the artisan and his atelier.
I worked in real estate development for many years and “retired” at a relative young age (35). I now have my own shop focusing on restoration carpentry. I’ve never been happier!! The sense of accomplishment and pride is unparalleled when compared to other professions. I strongly encourage others who have the inclination and skill to pursue artisan work. These are the people that make the world a better place to live. As far as money, you should be able to make enough to get by. If you are good you should be able to bring in around $175k. You won’t have many, if any, luxuries on that income, but you should be able to pay your bills.
I would describe the first combination of clothing as cool; the acrylic and metallic silver colors from the scarf and leggings offer an interesting balance that is not overdone or mismatching. I think the look would not be complete if the scarf were not there. 2945abc45 0425
