Wind Chime and Mosaiced Blue Totem

gardencroneAugust 14, 2009

Wow, this is fun and I am going to run out of glass soon. I finished one of my windchimes for my SIL and also the blue totem for my garden. It takes making some of this to learn all the "do's" and "don't's". The black grout was a REAL MESS...guess I should use gloves, eh? My nails look like I changed the oil on the neighborhood's cars. Next time I guess.

Very nice!
I have to know how you made the windchimes and I'm sure I won't be the only one.
You should share this on the Trash to Treasure site as well.

gc- Love the windchime and the blue totem. You did a good job on both of them. Next time you get into the grout, try soaking your nails in Polident (or the Wal Mart brand of denture cleaner) Believe it or not, this will make your hands and nails come clean and look good in no time. I use two tablets at a time in a bowl to clean mine. So, don't despair, there is a remedy for just about anything.

Love, love love, the wind chime and totem. I'm gonna have to take a look at trash to treasure to see how those totems are done. I also would love to know how you did the wind chime and what you used for the thingy that makes it chime.
