This is going to be a long post...
First we will get the Concrete Faux Bois..or Faux Bois Concrete out of the way
we will go on to better things.
This is a large concrete Faux Bois log planter.
Can you see the face?
I usually hide a face or word on my work.
Colse up of the "wood" texture.
The acid staining takes me almost as long as carving the texture.
Pretty much like creating a watercolor painting, but on concrete.
On this one, I had about 6 hours of carving time and about 4 more hours of staining.
This has been one of the strangest winters.
Very little snow and very warm.
We have been in the mid 40s all week and the snow that Smudge enjoyed last week is long gone.
Hurry up..and get to the book!
Here it is.
This is the book that I got for Christmas.
My sister made this book at Shutterfly.
It tells the story of Smudge's first six months of life.
Hard to believe that she was small enough to fit into her food bowl.
Look at those cute feet.
You should be able to click on the photos to read the captions.
how things have changed.
Notice the chew marks on the chair under the book.
This is such a great gift idea!
I love this book.
The picture of Smudge sleeping with her tongue out
is one of my all time favorites.
She had a long day delivering giant pumpkins.
You were so cute!!!
What do you mean.....
You WERE so cute.
I am still cute!!!
even though we have no furniture left to sit on..I guess that you are still cute.
Zippy on the way to work on concrete.
He found a mouse in the field and searched for it until I made him stop.
I just can't bear the squeaking as they go down the hatch.
Looking for a deer.
Were is My book???
You are not as cute as I am Oracle...
Besides..you are too muddy to be in a book.
Nothing funnier than a bulldog running with ears flapping.
Smudge in the golden light.
Looking for varmints.
Smudge enjoying her favorite outdoor activity.
Also a little stick chewing.
Until next time folks!
