First we'll start with the giveaway. This lovely piece was photographed using a polaroid camera and is 20"x20" printed onto watercolour paper held up by bulldog clips and wire. There are 2 pieces of dowel on the back of the picture to support it at the bottom and top and the piece is numbered.
Want a chance to win this piece? You need to read about Tracey's dilemma below and help her by suggesting ways to overcome the problem.
My dilemma is ........... I have started this very strange hobby of salvaging corbels off of homes that are getting torn down. I just hate to see such beautiful pieces of architecture getting destroyed, yet alone filling up the landfills. When the season of "tear down" is upon us, I start noticing red fencing around homes that are slated for demolition. After much prying and tugging, the corbels come off in relatively great condition! Now this is where my problem starts...... I get home, my hubby sees my prizes and he flips out. "Where are those going?" "We have no room!!!" "Nooooo!!!, they are not going into the garage ......THEY TAKE UP TOO MUCH ROOM!!!!" Fair enough, yes my corbels can run over 100 pounds. They are about 2-3 feet in height and approximately 1 foot in width. They come in all shapes and sizes. As weeks went by I ignored my husband's rants and continued to store my corbies in the garage until the long awaited Fieldstone Vintage Flea Market in which I sold all 12 pairs of corbels to my hubby's relief. However, here is my dilemma ....... I want to start another year of collecting corbels and we have a brand new garage so I mentioned that I want some room to store my goodies. ....... the battle begins! Tell me, what is the best reason hubby should allow me to take up some space in the garage for my corbels? Any storage ideas would be welcomed too.Here's Tracey at the Fieldstone Vintage Flea Market selling her corbels.
