Sparkle time...

Sunday 6 December 2015

Cold and sunny 16 degrees

The phone rang at 11.30 and it was a colleague, asking if I wanted to go tomorrow and help him to bring to market a chateau in a city near the mountains.  Estimated at 6 million euros...  He sent me some pictures and it looked imposing, high on a ridge with the mountains icy on the horizon.  A stunning grand entrance.  I said yes.

Spent the rest of the day cleaning and making some more sparkly resin buttons.  The whole flower pendant is just taking for ever to dry.  May stick some varnish on it and then resin over the top.  Put all the recalcitrant sticky leaves on a tray in the living room where they can enjoy some heat.  Icy cold in the craft room.
