DD only gave me a two day notice on a request from DGD's birthday gift. Threw this together last evening after finishing the birdbath. After six/eight photos, I gave up trying to get it to show all colors. Going to Dallas on Friday for the Saturday's 20th b.d. party for Granddaughter. This is just one of several gifts from Nana.
Katie's Gift

Slow, you're amazing. That is gorgeous for a "thrown together" gift! That lucky girl! Someday I hope to be able to throw something together in less than a summer. I truly love these pieces you do and will give one a try someday for sure. What an inspiration!

How impressive! I really love it! I am sure she will treasure it, I know I would! Don't feel impelled to let Katie know it was "thrown together", it certainly does not look it!

RE: Another Quick Gift

Y'all blow me away w/your compliments. The left cross I cut from a roll of old tin I got from a friend's barn, turned the edges in - middle cross is made from natural stone tiles from Lowes, and the blue one of course is glass. My stock is down, so need to get to HobLob. Nana - do you use a mold for the thinset, or just fashion them by hand? I'll try your method, cuz I always make too much and toss lots of it away - thanks for the thought. Y'all sure do make my days happier.

I missed this Slow!!! How beautiful and precious. Katie is going to LOVE it, can't wait for you to tell us how she liked her special gift from her Nana. Truly speaks from the heart and no one would every believe you just "through it together" so don't you dare tell anyone but us. LOL.
You are a true artist and your talent is here to see.

What's next???
