We met at Kate’s every morning at 9:00. The first day I was timid, but that didn’t last long. The welcome was just too warm, too genuine for that to last. So every day after that, when I arrived I said good morning to everyone and went to get a cup of coffee. Kate always had things set out so beautifully – cloth napkins, lovely dishes, cream in a creamer. Just nicely done.
It wasn’t until the third day that I realized there tumbler was behind the coffee serving area. And is that a brass brush I see in the upper left? I’m thinking yes.
And don’t I know how it is. Metalwork takes a lot of stuff – metal sheet, wire, tools and equipment. Pickle pots. Liver of sulphur containers. Torches. And those of us who have home studios that do double duty as living spaces have to be creative in our use of space. So when I saw Kate’s tumbler tucked away behind the coffee, I smiled. And took this photo. Is it a coincidence that it all matches? Or did the ever clever Kate plan it all out?
I bet she’s not telling.
