Week 20- Look Up

Focus on Life ... week 20... LOOK UP!

Since it is pouring rain today and none of our trees are in bloom I walked around the house and the gallery looking up...  Here's a selection of things I found... 
(No cobwebs were damaged during this photographic session!)
The mobile that hung in the house I grew up in from the time I was 5 until I took it down 2 years ago when I was helping to move my parents into a seniors condo complex... It is now hanging in my 'family room' and if my sister sees this picture she's going to say... 'Why did you get that?'

The Tiffany lamp that took me 6 years to build... at one point I had all the white pieces cut out  in piles on the dryer... my son who was then 3  was in the basement... I asked him what he was doing he came to the bottom of the stairs with a pail.. I didn't look in the pail and said OK have fun... he was carefully transferring all my unlabeled neatly piled pieces of white glass from the dryer to the pail... they stayed in the pail for 4 years!  Once finished, the lamp hung over my dining room table in SK for 10 years ... after we moved here I added loops to the inside and flipped it upside down.. (the ceiling where it is now is  12 feet)

One wall of  the  gallery which has 10 foot ceilings.... The two fused pieces in the middle are mine.

Oh man! I would have cried, for sure. An innocent error but boy, so crushing. I'm so glad you made your way back to it - what a fantastic piece.
