Don't forget to poke the photos to enlarge!

This thing is over eight feet tall now and if you look to the upper right corner, you can see one of the birds perched on a fruit... It is bigger than he is.
It paid off! The jacket on the left is rawhide. The one on the right is polished on one side and soft suede on the other. I got both of these for about $10.00!
Sometimes it pays to be patient and wait a while.
I have enough leather for minis and jewelry(mostly jewelry) to last me another ten years.
After Goodwill, I stopped at Dollar Tree. They had these little plant pots, 12 for a dollar. They can be cut down some with an Exacto knife or scissors. If we paint them, they will look like terracotta or stone. I have a few real plants to repot as soon as the conservatory is finished.
They come two to a package and the more protection, the better.
I am going back to cutting up leather now.
See you tomorrow.
