What I'm Working On









Here are two things I've had cooking in my brain for a while. Yesterday, I dug in....

The bench was free. And the broken tile was free. I borrowed paint from the neighbors. So I just have the grout in that piece, which I got at half price at the Habitat store. I've had this bench out by my garden and will probably keep it there after I finish it and seal it.

The table I found last week at the Salvation Army for 10 dollars and just fell in love with it. The top had a burn mark and some other wear and tear, but the shape and feel of it was perfect for the hand-made pottery shards I got from the Double Springs Pottery. They give me their seconds and broken pieces for free as well.

I want to keep this table too. I was listening to the Daily Audio Bible when Solomon dedicates the Temple while I worked on this and just talking with God and being present in my life while I worked on this. It feels good to look at and it looks like my conversation with God...meandering all over the place.
