Last week Cyndi said that they were starting to take the garden stuff in now. To which I say NOOOOOOOOOO! So then I took a look around my yard, and said to DH: “Do you think we have too many glass sculptures now? Should I just quit making them?”
And he said, “No way! We’ve got plenty of room. Why don’t you try a few smaller ones so we can fit more of them in.”
He said this with no irony whatsoever. How much do I love that man? The thing is, we do kinda have too many of them now. And what am I going to do with them? Sell them? Naw… I can’t imagine people buying them. And since our yard is only so big I liked his suggestion about smaller sculptures. So that’s what I’m doing now before the weather gets even colder.
As it was, the sun was shining and it was a nice day and I had a little time before the Packer game. So I pulled out some smaller blue and green pieces.
I noticed right away I had a few glasses that were the same design, just different colors. Love when that happens.
Then I took an old ashtray that even had a big chip in it, and flipped that over to use as the base. Ashtrays like this are really sturdy so they’re good for the bottom pieces. Besides that, you don’t want to smoke, do you? Well do you?
I like how the square base of the glass fit perfectly on the square part of the ashtray.
Glued some more…
… and then took a break by throwing the tire to my writing parter.
She took a break from that and went to inspect my old sculptures to make sure they were still standing.
And, ta-da! Finished.
