"I am pleased to intoroduce you to some of my closest friends and confidants!"
This months topic wanted us to describe who if we had any studio mascots. Well of course I do...Doesn't everyone? The collection you see above is my view from my bench where I sit, they are on my window sill. There are more scattered about but these little ones I like to keep together as they can be a handful when they get in one of thier moods. They seem to get really excited if I am hammering alot and then they start to cliff dive. It is kinda funny but really annoying as they always get stuck and I have to stop what I'm doing and retrieve them or else they sit and cry! I think they like the attention, sigh.... Now the monkey on the left, boy is he a stinker. He was supposed to be adopted to a friend of mine but they never came to get him so he stayed with me and now I am kind of sorry that I just didn't go and drop his bannana butt off on thier doorstep late at night. We have come to a manageable relationship now, but sometimes I swear!....
I seem to aquire alot of little friends, they find me when I go on walks, gifts from friends and strangers, and on my travels I always try and bring a new member home with me and many other mysterious ways they DO come into my like often and I welcome them always with open arms.
They watch over me when I work, they tell me stories, sometimes they even beg to be included in a piece I am working on, who am I to say no to one of my little friends. Sometimes I send them off to a friend in need of a little cheering up, or if they are really bad I will leave them possibly in a bathroom to be picked up by some naughty child at some random business , that will show em! This is thier purpose for me. Inspiration, secrets, smiles and companionship.
Have a great day and if your interested in reading more please see the EtsyMetal members blogs below!
