Stepping Stones into the New Year 2012

Well that was 2011 and Christmas and New Year celebrations all done and dusted. I must admit that I took a bit of a break from glass and just enjoyed the hot weather and the swimming pool for a bit.  Unable to watch TV in the evenings without falling asleep, I felt the need to have something to do so decided on mosaicing some foot paving stones for the pathway outside the back door.  So when the gardener arrived, I had the whole pathway dug up and cleaned and ready for the plastic, pebbles etc only to find out that all the suppliers were closed over the holiday period..............ah well.......
Below are the pics of the foot stepping stones ready and waiting for the pathway now.

New Lamps for Christmas in the Berg at Drakies

Mosaic Lamps seem to be very popular at the moment so I thought I would quickly post some pics before they are gone again.  I didn't manage to take photos of the last lot.

New window @ Mount Edgecomb

Well what do you know?  Christmas is right around the corner and I haven't updated my blog for the longest time!. We have been sooooo busy with all sorts of different things and I haven't really been taking photies either so really and truly for a blogger I have been bad bad bad...............

Attached is a window that Wally has just finished for a home in Mount Edgecomb.  The home is still in the process of restoration and modification so the wood finish on the window has not been completed and the struts holding the frame in place are still visible. There is still a front door and staircase window to be done.
Hope you like it...

Note the wall effect with plaster...............ooooooh I love it !

Sunday Tribune Garden Show

Phew!  I haven't blogged for such a long time.  We have just unpacked and settled in after doing both the Hilton Arts Festival and the Sunday Tribune Garden Show.  Man that was hectic doing 2 shows in 2 weeks! But we survived and now the creative juices are kicking in again with so many compliments received and orders to make. Wally and I decided to take this last weekend off and spend it with friends and I am so glad we did that because the weather was great and it was good to just chillax for a change. This relaxing mode can't last too long though because Christmas is around the corner and we have much to do. I am attaching some pics of our stand at the Garden Show because I am so proud that we won the Bronze Medal along with Bobbi whose jewellery is amazing.  We were judged along with all the major retailers and so it is a very big deal for us to win something like this as we are just crafters and don't have enormous budgets to throw at advertising on a show! Enjoy your day!

Nikki's dishes

I was going to wait until after the market to see how they did but I am just far to excited to wait and really need to share them! Patience was never a virtue of mine.  Nikki came up to visit me for the weekend and got stuck into creating some dishes and I think maybe the bug has bitten.  I love them - well done Nikki!!!
