Post Office Picture Frame

These are some super cute postal box fronts that I traded a fellow "junker" for. I decided to put some pics of Chad and I in the little openings. The birdhouses in the first picture were made by my buddy Elaine and the vases in the second picture are made with more of the wedding gems, jars from our candy buffet and resin.

Bowling Ball Garden Art

So this was my latest project that took up the entire kitchen in our huge house ;)
I started out by gluing left over glass gems from our wedding onto a bowling ball and grouting it. I added some additive to the grout which they say makes it less likely to crack outside enduring the weather. There you go...that's it. The only thing I would do differently next time is place the glass closer together or use less grout.
