We are 40 degrees cooler than last week. Yesterdays high was 58 F or 14 C eh!
We got 1 1/2 inches of rain. That will help the trees. I knew the rain was coming so I mowed the lawn.
I now have 56 out of 73 carved Christmas Ornaments ready to deliver. 17 to go. I have been carving on the challenging Trillium…Far Guy is doing way better with his than I am with mine…I will push through…but I am getting really tired of that project. Yesterday and the day before we carved in the greenhouse/woodshop…it is nice and cozy in there.
When I get bored with carving I walk over to glass alley and see what I can put together.
Four pieces of glass. A candleholder, a ashtray, a small blue plate and a vase.
This one is five pieces of glass. The center is a small coke glass, followed by a bowl, the turquoise piece is some kind of divided glass dish, a plate and a vase.
This one is five pieces of glass. A candle holder, a custard cup with a ruffled lip, a ruffled bowl, a plate and a vase.
This one is four pieces of glass, it doesn’t show well in the photograph but the upside down vase is a pale pink. A heart votive holder, a very old fancy goblet, a ruffled bowl and the vase.
I was using some coiled copper tubing for the glass flower vases to hang on…it was wimpy. I gave up on that idea and went to town and bought some PVC pipe, Far Guy had some blue spray paint so I used it! The stakes are easier to pound into the ground. I have another batch that I spray painted a copper color. The guys at the helpful hardware place cut the 10 footers into three equal lengths for me.
Some of these flowers will be gifts. I put them at the edge of the woods and in the yard to make sure that the marine glue holds and I enjoy looking at them! So far the only failure I have had was a piece that was painted glass that was bumpy…It was a piece I gave JoLynn so I fixed it for her.
I completed another five or six that are still curing in the greenhouse/woodshop. I need some more medium size plates and bowls (garage sales!!)
I walk up and down glass alley and see what looks good together…sometimes I am not sure so I just set the pieces on top of each other for a few days…then I come back and look at them again…sometimes even a third time before I scrap the idea or put the pieces together. Lawn Art doesn’t happen overnight.
