Song of the Sea
Oh, this little guy and I didn't get along at all. He had a really bad reputation around this house, and I was overheard to say bad words to him....more than twice. Everything I did with him was a problem. (Reminded me of another guy I had around once.)
I tore off and redid most everything I put on, and worried always that I didn't have enough tess, as I don't collect blue normally, and the gal that ordered it wanted an ocean theme. The turquoise pieces broke badly, and the roof was a disaster when I did it. The beach house I put on the back broke even worse. I was running out of tess that might work. Finding and working with tess that would endure outside and be able to be grouted was a challange for me. (I usually use a lot of smaller and irregular stone) I'm SO glad I'm finally about done with him. Just a little cleanup to go.
I'll get him out of here soon and start on some other things I need to do. I've got a couple of commissions of TG BB's and then on to something I want to do....Maybe that big piece of pipe I picked up along the way. Flag's inspiring me with her column, for sure! Heaven knows, I've got enough inspiration around here.
Here he is, and there he goes. It's much better this way, believe me. LOL
