“The whole point of the week is the weekend.”
― Angela Montenegro (Bones)
It’s January 14th. By now your resolutions are getting a little shakey. Your bench, which you cleaned up in preparation for all the time you were going to spend there, probably needs a little attention. Its time for a weekend. Not a putter around the house, and maybe see a movie weekend. A real, recharge your engine, can’t wait to get back and create something cool kinda weekend. For me, that means one thing and one thing only — salvage yards. I’ve written about the wonder of architectural salvage yards before, but frequent visits are like medicine to my soul.
The best are the ones where the owners are also artists. As you walk amongst the salvaged flooring, and stacks of stained glass windows, and fireplace mantles, you look up
and see this – a most amazing light fixture constructed with a huge mounted fish, a plastic milk crate, and even some actual chandeliers. Too bad our ceilings are too low.
