The bears are finally nearing completion. YAY!! I'm down to attaching the ears and beginning to see hints at bearsonalities. ;o) Facial detailing begins tomorrow!! Yahoozer doozer!! I know.....a collective "It's about time!" Aleta!!
It will be good for my soul to see bear faces looking back at me again. I do adore the little one's....the big one's just seem to have more....hmmmm....for lack of a better word at the moment.....soul. Most likely because they're.....BIGGER!!
I also wanted to show you a little something....okay, a rather BIG (5'10"!!)something. It's a mirror that Bill made out of all sorts of old wood bits. It's absolutely my color palette so I'm really waffling as to whether I really want to take it to Monticello or not. It's not every day you come across pillars that will work for this type of thing!
Here's the thing: Bill and I have THE most fabulous piece of old brass trim, very ornate, that came from a fabulous old victorian shop window. It's six feet long! We've been carting that piece of trim around for at least ten years!! The lentil at the top of the mirror accomodates the trim perfectly. If Bill attaches it to the mirror....it's not going to Monticello or I'd have to put a ridiculous price tag on it.
On the one hand, my heart says to keep it. Bill made it. The trim fits as if it were meant to be. On the other hand, I'm so proud of what Bill designs.....I want other people to enjoy what he can create. I really shouldn't be a piggie. I want to be the piggie. I shouldn't be the piggie. Oh heck....I'm the piggie. Hee! When Bill attaches the trim I'll take another picture. You can drool over it then. Make sure you bring a tissue to clean off the computer screen. Ha!
A most lovely Pink Wednesday (or Thursday!) to you!! I've not been on the computer much. I'm still trying to catch up from family visits and clearing out the last of our belongings at Mt. Pleasant. That chapter is officially closed. It just wasn't meant to be. A new young couple is hoping to make the schoolhouse their new home. That makes our heart smile for everyone involved. :o)
Warmest Pink Wednesday bear hugs, Aleta
