The To Do List
The freelance life was a little slow last week, so I kept busy by tackling my fix it to do list. Some are mundane — like getting links taken out of the bracelet of this Seiko Chronograph so that I could wear it finally.
Other chores have been on the list forever. Like finding shades for this five-arm arch lamp. I finally had to make them myself by hacking some IKEA pendants. I also took the patches off my old, now over-sized jean jacket onto a new-to-me vintage one (pictured here, draped on my office chair). Also please pay no mind to the mess.
I found this carved wooden wall mounted deer head earlier this summer. It was a major bargain because its ears were missing and its antlers had come loose. I knew I could reglue the horns, but given my procrastination skills, I figured that if I had to recarve new ears it wouldn’t match and I would never do it anyway. Then I remembered these wee wood mouse objects of my youth remembered that they had cute little leather ears.
I just so happened to have extra leather scraps left over from my Ookpik restoration project. so I cut some pieces to shape and glued them into the place with the ear holes.
There are so many other things that need doing. So many unfinished projects on deck.
