The big reveal :)

See the plywood on the back of this truck? It was used to haul my Miata and plants cross-country since R's employer would only pay to ship 1 vehicle. R hooked my Miata on the the back of our pick-up (with a few of my large garden pots/plants in the pick-up bed!) and off he went. I was stuck with the big-ass car (my Mom's) that the company would transport for us.

Guess what I made with that old plywood that has been laying around for almost 2 years now?

In the beginning:

It may need more bling, but I'm going to mull over it a little while :)

It looks great, quite striking and a cool shape.

Your house is very charming as well. You have no snow?

Pretty awesome ornament! Looks great with your front door. Good thing you have a big enough tree to hold it. Was it heavy to put up?

Kathy: we got about 3 to 4 inches that last go around, but it's pretty much all melted now. We had 16 inches for the halloween storm. Both times the snow was very wet and heavy. The Halloween storm did quite a job on the lilacs that line the sidewalk.

Thanks for the nice comments everyone!

Add bling if you want, but I love the simplicity - and love love the ornaments.

RE: The big reveal :)

Absolutely stunning.

How big is it? I'm guessing 4' tall and maybe 2' diameter?


 o
RE: The big reveal :)

Thanks for all the nice compliments!

pixie lou; yes it's about 4 feet tall and about 2 feet wide. It doesn't really fill the space like I had hoped, but I was working with wood scraps. The next one will be between 7 and 8 feet tall. I think that proportion will work better in that space.
