Elephant pedicure blues .

Started a herd of elephants yesterday and managed to only get bodies , butts , saddle and trunks thrown. Today I worked on legs , bird knobs, tail tassel and tusks.

Tonite I worked on elephant toes . 6 elephants = 24 x 4 toes 😮 all with porcelain inlays! I got 3 sets inlaid tonite and still have 3 more sets to do tomorrow. When all are set I will buff and polish !

Ears and tail are the last things to make before assemblage and the MAGIC ❤️. Pictures tomorrow of the progress ❤️

It’s been a hectic month and very little time to post much . The Leicester studio tour is done and I’m working toward the Guild Fair now . Talk more tomorrow ❤️

How I spent my summer vacation.

I got back to work in the studio FINALLY this week.  There is so much to do after a show ends and getting ready for the  studio  tour that happens this weekend August 18-19.  It’s also my birthday month so I treat myself to metal yard art I collect at a local craft fair . This year I got 5 new pieces so the paint bombs went crazy and I even got my hubby hooked on paintbombing the plastic outside chairs ! What a riot of color !

So most everything is ready to go for the tour. Praying for good weather in spite of a gloomy rain forecast for Saturday and Sunday .

Haircut / clean studio/ get signs out / get tents up and refreshment table set up/ get all business needs in place and get ready to welcome all that make the trip ❤️

Spread the word folks , it’s a really fun tour and seeing the beautiful country side north/west of Asheville and just minutes away from downtown in some places ( me )  I love Leicester pronounced Lester !

Hi 👋🏻 I’m working at Odyssey Co Op today 8-10-2018 and it’s been slow so I’ve time to chat a bit and share a few things.

The tour is approaching soon. Next Saturday and Sunday August 18-19 from 10am-6pm both days ! You can download a map from the website above and I’ll post a picture of it here if possible. I’m still learning how to use and navigate WordPress .

The past few weeks I’ve been readying for the self guided tour by cleaning and setting up the mini gallery and the basement showroom. I’ve also purchased some new metal YARD ART and added my own touch by spraying canned paint on them and refreshing some of my older ones plus I painted the metal bench wild colors. Here are just a few as I’ve been collecting for at least 20 maybe closer to 25 years now ❤️

yeah this is the tour map and I’m # 1 on the map . this is my mini gallery. It’s only 8’x10′ inside . I also have a wild and crazy ‘ man eating chicken’ on the site called Mr Roo ! Watch out for him as he may try to woo you❤️😎

My birthday 🎂 is almost here! 2 days from today and I’m opposite my only granddaughter in age ! She will be 16 about 1.5 weeks from my day . So it’s a special year ❤️

I finally got back into the studio yesterday and weighed wedged for 6 elephants and 3 trays ; 2 lasagna and 2 meatloaf pans ; 4 olive oil 2 partners and I’m not sure what else I prepped for but I’m gonna be busy busy busy for next few months ! Hugs ❤️thanks for reading this blog today ❤️
