120/365 Coming Down the Home Stretch

I've been working on this birdbath for what seems forever.  I work on it for a while and then let it sit several weeks or months.  Well, I'm almost done with gluing!  Just have to finish the edge with the blue glass and then put something on the top edge.  I don't like the bottom of the bowl at all, but it'll stay as is.  I'm not going to redo it.  I hope the beads stay on.  They are from a necklace that belonged to my mother-in-law.  She really loved birds and it was my husband's idea to add them.  I think they add a nice, meaningful touch.  My cutting of the blue stained glass is pretty pitiful.  But I've decided to embrace imperfection!!   After gluing, I will grout, a small section at a time.  Woohoo, I'm almost finished!!


  1. That is beautiful. What grand work you do.

  2. Oh, can't wait to see the finished product. I love that you added the beads....
