And then, what fun—after 12+ years creating our woodenwares, we’re winning prizes! Bruce Museum, Greenwich, CT in May--3rd Place in Wood and last weekend in Old Saybrook, CT--First Place in Wood. And in lieu of “Best Booth” at a favorite unnamed show, we’ve been assured of the primo booth location in years to come.
It’s gratifying to be recognized for the work we do as well as our presentation. It reinforces our partnership as artists and solidifies our marriage.
Our work is time-and brain-consuming, though, and we both wish there were more hours in the day for furthering our homestead and writing projects. As well, we wish for more time to just enjoy each other’s company—Life is so short.
So this week, we’ll combine our Vermont wood-purchasing trip with a family reunion and a bit of vacation. We hope to return with fabulous wood, better attitudes and rested souls.
