I dunno what happened...I was gonna grout my other pc today and I ended up picking up this pc of wedi board and starting this pc! And I am Loving it! I think I have been stalling on this pc cuz I couldn't think of just a few things to put on the memory board...but I decided to keep it simple and put Slow, Toby, and The Perot Theater. One day we were out at a store and I found a braclet on the ground outside the building, so I kept it and chopped it up for the mosaic(round texas stars, mounted on half marbles). I love the background glass that was given to me by CanadianSquirrelly(Shirley), last time she was here(I Love that VanGogh Glass!) it so reminds me of Slow's painted walls in her Lovely home!!!

Well blow me away, please. CALAM. I'm gonna LOVE this piece. I was wondering what was stalling this project. You beat all. Love how you've used that bracelet. We were walking into Walgreens, and there we spied this beautiful TX bracelet. CALAM has the most eagle eyes of anyone I've ever seen. I look the whole place over - in the thrift stores - and CALAM w/zero in on the real jewels. She is a real piece of work in herself. Thanks, CALAM, for the tribute - "I'm not worthy".

So This is done except for the grouting! I am happy with it, I had to finish it off with the 1/2 globs on the outside, and Cindy/Klinger helped me to figure out what I wanted for colors...I think it turned out pretty good!!!heh heh!
