|Fire hydrant on University of Michigan|
I just love the way the paint chips and rust coming through. I do have some of the fire hydrant pictures for sale on our Etsy site if you are looking for something rusty and unique.
Mom has started sawing out snowflakes for our last show of the season. The few we took last year sold out in about 20 minutes - so from the picture below you see there is a pile of them that have to be sawed out.

|The pile to be sawed out - I will do the perimeters and mom will do the interiors|
The copper scrap on the right is the 20 gauge copper we use to make our pendants and bowls. The copper on the left is ohhhh much thinner than 20 gauge - I am thinking it is 24 gauge.
All the sheets of copper are like that. So, we sent an email to them yesterday and are now waiting for a response. This is not good for us because we need to make up more bowls and pendants before the last show. Cross your fingers for us that we get this resolved soon or there will be much panic in the household!!!
While mom was sawing out snowflake pendants I was taking pictures of our double-sided, reversible enameled pendants to post on Etsy. Once I got all the pictures taken I then had to crop and resize the pendants - I also created a collage to show the front and back side of the pendants together. The reversible pendants we have left have now been listed.

Though - I can say I am trying to be better on the blogging. I think this will be the fourth post in the month of October. No where close to what I used to blog - but I am slowly building back up to posting.
I also signed mom and myself up for Sally Russick's 2014 Holiday Ornament Swap. Last year was the first year we participated and our swap partner was actually Sally herself. You can go here and check out what we received from Sally.
Well - I hope you had a wonderfully productive weekend like we did. Have a great week!
