OK – that is a bit of an over statement! It probably should read “WINDOW LATCH INSPIRATION TINGLE”. There I was in my attic studio, trying to get the basics of chasing and repousse. By the way, I am moving at the pace of a snail in my quest to learn this new technique – but I am not going to give up. I AM going to master chasing and repousse!!!! Anyway back to the window shocker/tingler.
and I was closing the attic window when I noticed a very obvious and rather fetching CURLY TAIL ANIMAL design. Yes, this design had been under my nose all the time.
The CURLY TAIL ANIMAL design I am talking about is the window catch from the attic window, the attic in mention was constructed in 1910 and is Edwardian design.
This is what the catch looks like when it is closed – the one on the left is broken sadly. I can really see this newly noticed CURLY TAIL ANIMAL being of great use to me because it will hang well from a simple chain.
THE MORAL OF THE STORY – BE ON THE LOOK OUT FOR INSPIRATION ALL THE TIME AND DON’T IGNORE WHAT YOU SEE EVERYDAY!
