Last projects

I finally finished my two projects that will probably my last until I get all settled. Here they are: The table can be broken down into two pieces for travel. I did the parrot to follow my theme of It's 5 o'clock Somewhere.
I started the flamingo several months ago to post in my front window when I am parked. I have put off completing it for quite awhile but I knew I had to finish it before I tore down my crafts room. I probably should have used a lighter grout on the flamingo but I had the black mixed for the table above and didn't want to mix another round. Black is so messy to work with.
The craft room is just about torn down. Theda is coming this weekend and will take most of it over there. The tools for stained glass is so expensive so I wanted it to stay with me so I could put my hands on it when I was in the mood again.
Things are really looking up for the move. I had a couple come by today who bought my dresser (thank to Becky) and they carried it off. Don't have but a few more things to sell.
I pick Taylor up from the airport tomorrow. She will be w/me for the week and it couldn't happen at a better time. I sure will be able to use her help.
I just got off Skype with my family who are together in East TN for Easter. It was just like I was there except when they started bringing their desserts over and eating in front of the webcam. Shame on them, boy it sure looked good. Just reminded me of what I am missing.

Oh my gosh, they are beautiful! I can see both of those in an upscale gift shop in Key West! Of course, you can see them in Somewhere!! You have arrived, girlfriend! Glad that you are keeping your equipment and glass. I cannot wait to see them in person.
