Thanks for Lunch

The pedestal is about to be loaded into the Jeep headed for Becky's house. The main reason for the junkin trip to Shreveport was to have lunch at Copeland's Restaurant. I was hungry for seafood in their style. Since I won't let Becky help w/the gas, she always buys our lunch, and a lunch it WAS. Fabulous. Adhered w/Omni Grip from Home D, grouted w/Charcoal-colored polymer-modified mortar. This is a bit bland in color, cuz Becky only likes yellows, oranges, greens and red. I did throw in the blue flower from a candle holder I bought at an estate sale that day.

Bland?!? You could NEVER make anything bland, silly girl!
It's beautiful! I have the blocks, just need the time (and inspiration, which I think I just got from you) to go out and do it! Lovely gift!

OMG!! this is beautiful..I will but you lunch for one of those!.. I know I can do one, but it wouldn't be the same as having one of yours. This thing is gorgeous and I think that maybe you got into your new stash of plates etc. with this one? You do such beautiful and off the wall work...love it.

What a wonderful pedestal, Slow. You have such a great eye for balance and color and design. Wow. I love the 4 squares stacked like that too. What did you use for substrate?

LOL I can see why you think it's bland - compared to your usual bling. It's beautiful and not bland to us ordinary folks ;)

RE: Thanks for Lunch

Hey, good morning y'all. Thanks a bunch. MER - these blocks are made for fast work - doesn't take any time at all to slap them together. They are rather addicting too, I might add. CINDI - get on w/one - we're watching. FLAG: I'll settle for your taking me junkin w/you for a pedestal. I have more blocks, and I'll see what I can come up with. I did use the plate stash. Really helps to have them at the ready, even though they still had to be nipped. I have two blisters from all the nipping. Gotta mow today, though, so can't get started on yours just yet. Also working on the other candlestick. Thanks for answering DAISY's question. I only play computer once a day lately. DAISY: What, in this piece, made you decide to keep everything from now on? CALAM/SHRTY - yep, it's bland to me, but on FLAG's I can go crazy w/color, so watch out.

There you go Gypsy...get in line...lol..she likes that alcholic stuff. Maybe she will do your's first...lol

RE: Thanks for Lunch

Slow, oh, I meant I'd never throw away a plate again, LOL I returned some beautiful plain green ones months ago thinking ONLY of making my birdhouses and now I'm sooooo sorry.

Flag, thanks for answering my question about what they are. But I'm still not sure what a half block is. Are they cement? I'll have to get myself some of THOSE.
