I thought you may like to see some of the equipment and projects these two collaborate on at the shop…aka the playground.
I took photos of some of the things at the shop that I thought looked “cool”. Probably not the photo shots they would have chosen….😁

Next time I’ll show you what they make. These guys are skilled craftsman and artists with metal. They enjoy working together, and each has his special skills that make them a great team. May their new venture together continue to grow and prosper!
Hope you have a weekend that’s over the top!
You will find none of that here.
Just a great day outdoors, grouting a pile of mosaics made over the winter.
Last year I had lovely hibiscus plants blooming all summer in three planters. I did not bring the three ginormous planters in, so the hibiscus perished over the winter. This summer I’m hoping their skeletal form will serve as a support for my purple hyacinth bean plants. At best, it will be a glorious topiary of purple splendor. Fingers crossed. Will keep you posted because I know you are at the edge of your seat with anticipation.
Pretty flowers enshrining a dead tree.
I completed a mosaic for the kid’s bathroom at my daughter’s home.
I filled in the mosaic border of the mirror with stained glass, mirrored fish and a few tile bubbles. My son in law, Derek, made the mosaic frame and also formed the cement countertop. He is awesome like that!
“Grammie, let’s take a bike walk to the park.” Meaning they ride their little bikes with training wheels, and adults walk. Makes sense.
