Where it all happens…

This is where all the pictures are taken for the blog (well, at least the pictures I put on). My sister’s pictures are taken at her house in Pennsylvania.

I was punching out some butterflies from pretty pink paper the other night and didn’t know what to do with them and since I was sitting at the table I just scattered them around the table and it looked good so I left them and thought I’d take a picture to show you all.
Here’s some pictures of a cement dog I bought at the Garden Show. I bought this little garden sculpture that I am so not putting in the garden…to be ruined.  It’s so darn cute. It’s cut out from a cement garden stone with thick wire ears and tail.

The back.

When I got it home I had the bright idea to see if I could make something else with this shape doggie since it was so basic of a shape. I was very excited about this project. I don’t know exactly what I was expecting to get, but I used scrapbook paper and cut out the bunny shape out of a cardboard poster. Well, here are the results of that effort.

Kinda looks like a bunny but it’s a dog.

I glued little springs to the back of the paper “noses” so they stick out some.

This is the nose on the original sculpture. See? It sticks out on a piece of metal wire. I tried to do the same thing.

I think I was expecting to have something more along the lines of the original sculpture but they turned out to be cutesy little doggies (or bunnies) instead.  Granddaughter thought they were pigs. Oh, maybe brown paper would be more along the lines of what I was thinking of. Hmm. maybe I’ll try that.
