Sometimes when I tie fringe, I talk on the phone.
Today, I did not tie fringe. That was for the apprentice.
Ha! I love saying that.
I started weaving tote bags, just like I said I would.
Big, beach bag sized totes.
I don't have any photos for you yet.
But you don't need them, cause I have a CELLAR TOUR for you.
Yup. When I was down there checking on the frozen water pipe, I took my camera.
The cellar at the studio is very large, and dark, and dirty. It is also very interesting.
So come on down.
This is the old coal stove. Not sure how long ago it was used, but it has been defunct for a very long time.
I hope to have it dismantled and removed.
You can see the old stair HERE
I have a pile of them waiting for me to clean them up.
This old barrel has seen better days. I think it I tried to move it, I would have a pile of boards.
I put the cellar windows in. They were all boarded up from the inside, and there was dirt pushed against the outside. Look just to the left of the outside window, and right under the vent pipe, you can see another window, only this one is to the room behind that wall.
The rumor mill has it that this house was used in the Underground Railroad. This room looks like a likely place
Then again it could have been the place where they stored vegetables.
Note the wooden ceiling.
This is one of my goals for this year. I want to clean this cellar, drag everything out into the yard. Put some lights up, insulate the ceiling, so that the floors in the house are warmer.
Maybe get the bake oven back in shape.
Now, does THAT sound like a plan?
Let's get some sunshine.......
