Well, I'm gearing up for the next Alt.Shift.Craft artisan's fair at the end of November...just before xmas. It's Spring here in New Zealand and finally (finally!) the weather is beginning to settle. It has been all of the seasons in one day here for weeks and weeks now and we're all mighty sick of it.

Well, that's what he discovered...a veritable Tutankhamun's tomb of rust! Previous owners had stashed a heap of old paint cans etc under the house after they built it and Jason found them all. The paint from the cans, long dried up, had congealed into the lids and over time the lids had turned to rust. As well as that, rusty wire, nails, bits of metal and goodness knows what else. Previosuly inaccessible because it was bordered up and hidden by the wood. OMG, I love you son!!!
