Begonia lamp


I cut out each piece of the pattern and lay it on what ever glass I'm using. Then trace it with a marker. Then cut out each piece with a glass cutter and grind it smooth to fit into the space. For difficult cuts i use a water saw. Sometimes i grind and grind to make it fit.
Only 6 more panels to go. Lamps are great to make. Again, where will this one go?

I'm sure you won't have a problem finding a space...what a to die for pattern, you are just too good girl!!! can't wait to see the finished product!

I love my shabby lil love seat and it truly is a whore house piece. That cupboard I got from Manleys' WAY back in the day and it's been stripped, you know their work, but I need some change and I think it will be cool all grunged, like old French cupboards, white mixed with grays and pale blues...it'll be a challenge, it has pressed designs on the doors, so they will be cool sanded...wish me luck, or I'll be stripping for sure!

See ya...s

Hey Little Girl!
You could never step too hard, on thses old toes! {Remember, I am a horsewoman, and I've had draft horses do the twist, on my toes!} And we think more, alike, than not, concerning this. However, I have been looking at life, well, a little differently, as of late... Maybe it's my age...who knows... A guy told me once, it's not the years, it's the miles... I have seen a lot, over the many, many miles... oh my... And as Michael is singing, right now, maybe, I'm looking at who is looking back, in the mirror....
All of my love to you...I can't wait to see ya!
