My Junkyard Dog

June is a busy month because we have 3 birthdays. Last weekend we celebrated all 3 at once. My birthday was June 12th and I got some awesome sandals (it's nice to have a son who works at Zappo's), the 4th season of Rescue Me and a dog made out of scrap auto parts. The best part was having the whole family together.

I need to learn to weld so I can make the junk sculptures!

Just Fooling Around

Today was dreary and cool. Instead of wasting it, I went downstairs to my studio and made a suncatcher using a potmelt a friend had sent me. Sometimes I just like to see where the glass is going to take me. I found several pieces of scrap glass that matched the colors in the potmelt and laid them out on my workbench. I may have to trim an edge or two, but it mostly just fits together like puzzle pieces. Working with a pattern was just too tedious today. So, this one is for my friend Nancy.
