When I’ve had a long, trying day within the confines (my loving term for sitting in my grey cube for 9+ hours a day), very few things are better than walking into my sunshine filled sewing room and just collapsing. I don’t even necessarily have to work on anything. I just love to revel in the nicely folded, color coded fabric stash and the drawers of beads, paints, and sketchpads just waiting to be pulled out.
We all have our releases and this fine weekend, my husband had the opportunity to revel in his for hours upon hours. He even had a captive audience! The photos from the whole experience were just too great not to share. So here it is, my husband and his father painstakingly cleaning their cars and the resulting beauty shots.
My husband’s father just bought his dream car which he’s been coveting for years. Recently the right amount of luck and timing all came together and it’s now his, all his. Well, and half his wife’s of course
It’s a 1986 Mercedes Benz red something or other. It’s only 3 years younger than me, but is in about 10x better shape.
The results: A photo shoot for convertibles only. The husband’s baby is the silver one, a 2002-ish BMW silver convertible (I know, you’re thinking, “she knows so much about cars and sewing machines! What a lucky man, that Mr. Bruno!”)
I guess we all have our hobbies right? And I do take lots of photos of my quilts and such so I guess this isn’t too odd. Maybe.
The best part? It gave me hours of guilt-free crafting time. Thank goodness for hobbies!!
