John & I headed north to my old hood to do a supply run and other business stuff this past weekend. Whenever we head north we make a pit stop at Skagit Building Salvage. It's a great resource for the random building supply. Everything from cast iron bathtubs, stained glass windows, doors and so much more.
We often find great pieces of reclaimed wood for our work. It's truly a treasure hunt. Sparks often start to fly and we end up walking away with a load of awesome random goodness.
Skagit Salvage is also a little sentimental for me. Many moons ago my dad had a shared auto & engine repair shop directly across the street. I used to roam that area like every good tomboy would. That part of Mount Vernon, Washington has always had a industrial flavor to it. But in high contrast only a few miles away is the local famed Tulip Festival. Which we had a to make a pit stop at.
We ended our day by leaving Whidbey Island (my home island). "Oddly" inspiration for new works seem to happen when I have a few moments on the rock. Expect more Pacific Northwest Lifer themed items in the very new future.
