My First Photo Hunters - Art

This is the first time that we've participated in this one. When I saw that DaisyMae Maus had put up a piece of stained glass that Mommy did, I though we should show a couple others that Mommy did. The one below was the very first really big piece that Mommy did. She mounted it on top of a mirror and now it hangs in the new house in the entry way. This picture was taken when Grandpa came over to help her hang it at the old house. Grandpa made the frame for it. I love how his reflection shows in the mirror (isn't he cute?)

This last one is Mommy favorite big piece that she's done so far. This picture was taken before it was framed. Grandpa made the frame for it too. It's currently hanging over the spa tub (where I get my baths) in Mommy and Daddy's bathroom. Mommy says she likes it there because she sees it every day! It's over 400 pieces of glass. Mommy says that's a lot of glass but it only took her a couple of months to do it in the evenings and weekends (that was before she got married though. Apparently husbands suck up a lot of previously free time).

Right now Mommy still working on a large piece with grapes. She hates working on it because she's using glass nuggets for the grapes and says that grinding them is causing her to grind her teeth! She's taken a break from it to make some smaller pieces and is right now waiting for a stepping stone memorial to my brother McKenzie to finish drying. She hopes to be able to post a picture of it soon. She says it will still be awhile before she goes back to glass because she has to work on a crochet project for her friends Lisa and Joel's new baby.

Your Mommy is so talented! I think I like the waterfall piece the best because it is very tranquil.

Your Grandpa looks nice!

Those stained glass pieces are GORGEOUS! And your grandad isn't bad either ... You can tell him that I said that 'cuz he gave me lots and lots of pets when he was down here visiting last October. I miss taking naps with him.

When your momma finishes her next pieces, please ask her if you can post some pictures. We really wanna see 'em!
