Patches...

This is a Large....Wooden Bowl...I have in the House... It was broken...in two...John took some old tin scraps...and patched it for me.....several years ago.... Love...It....
Many years ago....when my friends, Michael, and Ed came through....{Leftovers Antiques}Michael said he was looking for broken wooden bowls... to patch... I sold him a couple... then, I ran across this one....and asked John...if he could fix it..... The rest is history.... Thanks, to Michael's Great Idea.... I put John to doing his artwork...on the Old Darlings....
and that led to so many other cool things....John has created....
No worries...if Michael needs them...I'll find him some...too...
This is what I Love...about Creative Souls... They Inspire....and...are Happy to Share....
The ones...that have an Artists...Soul....oh my...
They Truly Bring....Beauty...to the World....
in so many ways....
Love 'em!
Have a Lovely Day....
Barb C.
I have a very busy day, ahead....working down The Rabbit Hole.... then...later...in the day...taking a ride to Southern Iowa...to see Marv....
a Long day...indeed....

When you break a leg it gets a cast, when you break a bowl it gets a patch... Like the make do's of days gone by, things had to outlast their strength and continue with patches and mends... all things old can be new again.... Love ya Barb!!

The old bowl story strikes a note---in the days of hanging stuff on the walls, I managed yo break my grandmother's very large dough bowl when it fell to the floor. I still have it, however and the glue still is holding many years later. I carefully mended it without leaving traces of Elmer! Nice story. First time visitor.
