WIP and a couple finished projects

flagtruckJuly 20, 2008

Hi Y'all - The big urn is finally finished and set in place, it should be pumping water by tomorrow. The wrought iron table and chairs are a estate sale find that I cleaned up and painted Purple. I finally got around to finishing with the gems to add some color and match the mosaic insets in the brick patio.

The cinderblocks are another set I am making and the work in progress on them and the Purple pot are progressing nicely and tomorrow is a grout day to finish a few more projects. I will post the urn pumping water tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed it all works.

The addition of the colored pieces to that wrought iron set was inspired. I love how much happiness "Pop" was added by those pieces. The succulent post and the pot with the blue are great to see. I can hardly wait to see what else you do with them. Do you already know what you're going to do with the pot? Do you always pretty much plan in advance, or let the piece develop as you go? You get so much done each week, it's amazing. Thanks for the great pictures!

got all hung up scoping out your albums, you have got some beautiful goings on in your yard, don't know how you keep all that up and mosaic at the same time, i am truely impressed. love your urn, sure want to see it all set up, i have got to get some time off and come see all the great things ya'll got going on over there in Texas. purples and lime greens are my favorite colors and sometimes red, so i really like the purple table and chairs, the colors you added sure make it whimsical.

I sure do like your work on cinder blocks. Want to do some. The purple table looks so pretty esp. with globs.

Again - don't know how you accomplish so much so fast. I would NEVER have thought of trimming out the table/chairs and the space underneath as you have. Your mind never stops creating. Gonna try to come see you soon.

Carol, the fountain is FANTASTIC, and I love your wrought iron table, the trimmings really make it stand out. and speaking of stands, I looked down at the ground and saw this really cool mosaic underneath your patio table. HOW COOL is that?? Please tell how you did that?? I love your work, you are really moving along.

Thanks to all of you. I am delighted that you like the table and chairs. The mosaic around the umbrella pole base is something I did as the bricks were laid. I left some triangle shapes and then measured them and made a cardboard template. I then cut them out of 12 x 12 floor tile and mosaiced the backside of them. I really wanted those spokes so to speak to pick up the colors on the table. I am glad it is done because it makes me happy when I see it.
Thanks again to all of you
Calamity- you just better get urself on down here. We are waiting for you.
