Various and Sundry Things...Not Mini...
Walter climbed up on the roof and trimmed the Mesquite tree...
That doesn't sound like much, but those five little piles are each about 5 to 6 feet long and a couple of feet + high.
He had to stop when the chain on his saw loosened and flew off. Thank goodness it went away from him and not towards him.
Anyway, I went out and helped him drag the branches to the curb... Not for too long. My eyes started watering and my nose running. Evidently I am allergic to Mesquite...
The next two photos are what I did on my day off from the cottage.
I kept seeing these sun catchers on Pinterest and decided to try making one last night. I finished it this morning.
Unfortunately, no sun! I think that it will be pretty when there is sun. The beads are strung on wires in an ark shape. I used a lot of beads that I had and didn't know what to do with. There are even some crystals in the mix. I will have to try for a better photo when the sun is shining.
The branches are supposed to wave in the breeze... I am batting a thousand. No sun. No breeze.
So far, I am liking how it is turning out. I am winging it. I have no idea what it is going to look like when finished.
OK... The day off is done. I have to get back to work on the cottage now.
See you tomorrow, with minis.
