Another Mirror Mosaic

This one I did for my daughters/guest room. My daughter moved home you may recall(-: Although, she does plan to move out again in the near future, so the room will be all mine again(-: I will be happy for her this time around(-: Last time I was not so happy as some of you may recall. But, everything does work out in the end, so in case you are doubting things, don't worry because it will all work out eventually!
Anyhow, this window I made into a picture before. I embroidered a flag and a saying to go along with the flag and put it where the window panes would go. It was nice but I got tired of it and thought I would re do it with the mirrors. I am glad I did because I like it much more now(-:

Where Is Spring?

It hailed here yesterday! Not just a little bit, but a huge amount! It was all white outside! I took this picture of the bird feeder so you could see the size of the hail! It is unusual at anytime, let alone Spring! We normally do not get hail here. Since Friday, it has hailed several times around town! This was the first hail that hit my yard!
Then in Maxwell, California there was a tornado! All very strange for this area of CA. It is cold. I mean we have had to have a fire to heat the house and here it is the middle of March! By now, we usually have mostly sunny days, and wonderful planting weather. Hopefully soon it will happen, because this gardener is going crazyyyyyyy(-:
Since I am stuck inside, I decided to make another mirror mosaic window. I am about 1/3 of the way done. I will post pictures when it's finished(-:

A Heads Up!...Have I lost My Head?

Last week I was at Ross and they had a ton of ceramic pots for great prices! Lots of different sizes and shapes and colors! I didn't get one though. I thought about it and thought I better stick with what I found instead...Yup you guessed it...

There was only one left... 8 bucks...well no one could pry it out of my hands if they tried...(-:

Project Done

Well this is it. I made "pillows" for my bed...(-: It isn't looking so great right now because of just being planted but hopefully when Spring gets here things will start growing! I will have to take more pictures then(-:

New Project

For this project I am using "almost" all recycled/free materials(-: The old 2X4's were from my kids playhouse years ago. When we tore it down I stacked all the wood to be used for projects at a later date. I knew I would find a use someday.(-: Anyhow, I cut them with the power saw into 24", 18" and 12" pieces. What will they make?
I also had the old wood bowl that is going to be perfect to complete the project! I will let you see when its all finished(-: Hopefully tomorrow(-: Until then you can let your imagination run wild...LOL(-:

One of My Owl Neighbors

He was sitting outside in the oak tree. So I had to sneak up on him and take his picture(-: He wasn't looking at me so I could not get his face. Maybe next time(-:
