Helllllllllllllllllllooooooooooo ;o)

Hi Everyone ;o)
This is Stacy's outside Gargoyle talking to you today ;o) Protector of the gardens and the house ;o) Stacy asked me to do this post for her, because she is all excited! She is going away for a few days. July 31st to August 2nd. She's going to Bancroft for The Annual Rockhound Gemboree ;o) The one time of year, she shuts her shop and leaves her computer at home! She even shaved and cut her toe nails! LOL! She's all excited to look at some new stones and crystals, while enjoying the beautiful outdoors ;o)

Guess what? While Stacy has been running around. Mama Crow has been making homemade pasta sauce ;o) Fresh basil! (I hope there is left overs for me!)
And, this came in the driveway! So much excitement!
So this started happening!
Stacy thought it was going to be a relaxing day today! She did want me to tell you, the Russian Sage is blooming!
She's already cut some and it's drying. Red Cat is keeping guard over it ;o)
Red Cat use to be Brown Cat, until Stacy spray painted her! Stacy loves her spray paint!!!
I just thought of something scary!! What happens if she sprays me with hot pink paint!!! She hasn't used that color yet! I don't want to be hot pink! I better hide!!!

Before I go, "Miss Purple" wanted to say thanks for all the complements ;o) I know Stacy had a lot of fun creating her ;o)

Stacy will catch up with you all when she gets back ;o)

Big Hugs and Keep On Smiling ;o)

Four (You got to see it, to believe it!)

Hi Everyone ;o) Welcome to another month with Gloria's Four ;o) I have to admit to you, I wrote to Gloria a few days ago and told her, I wouldn't be participating this month. But, then things changed in a couple of days!

I went to Michaels and saw that some hot pink and purple spray paint were on sale. Of course I bought some. You never know when you might be spray painting something purple or hot pink ;o)

When I came home I went outside to play in the garden. I was looking at one of my trees (bush). I got it for .76 cents roughly 4 years ago. I never buy anything for full price! LOL! It grew really fast! Several twisted trunks on it and lots of viney branches. It flowers nice in Spring, than it has little berries on it. But, the birds don't even eat the berries. Once it has had it's flowers and berries, it always has tones of bugs on it, and the leaves always turn grey brown and die off. No matter what I do.

So, I said to my mom, I'm going to chop it down. She had no problems with it. I'm the gardener in the house ;o) So, I started chopping and sawing. Then my mind got creative ;o) I left one of it's trunks. Then I grabbed a tree root, I had laying around. I don't throw anything out! LOL! I took the tree root and attached it to the skinny trunk and sprayed painted the entire thing purple! Yes, I did ;o)

Then I attached my sun on one side and one of my wind chimes on the other side ;o)

I think it looks so cool! When you look at it in different ways, you can see different images. What can I say, I like different and unique ;o) No boring for me ;o)

I called my mom to look at my latest creation. Her exact words, "Holy Shit"! LOL! Honestly, she did like it, it just took her by surprise ;o)

So, here is "Miss Purple". I took some different views for you ;o) (click on the pictures to see them bigger)





So, you might be wondering what my four letter word is? I was thinking of my mom's words, holy shit! LOL! But, nope not those ;o) My word is "wood" ;o)

Have a great weekend everyone ;o) Be You!! Big Hugs ;o)

New Crow Art and Water Proofing Finished

Hi Everyone ;o) Hope you are enjoying your weekend ;o) It has cooled down here, but it's still hot! Our air conditioner broke this week, after just getting it connected up, 6 days ago! The guy was really nice, came that day and fixed it ;o) Some part went on it. Lucky it wasn't too expensive ;o)

I have some new Aceo's (2.5" x 3.5") to show you ;o)

"Miss Pink"
"Moon Calling"
"Graffiti"
"Autumn"
Another, "First Landing" ;o)
The water proofing is all done! Yepee! Now, to make everything look pretty again. That will take awhile, because the earth has to settle. The one part where the deck was, might take a year to settle, because the earth there was all clay! But, the other side, our walk way should be cemented in a couple of weeks ;o)

Here is a picture of the wall. This is showing the tar, the plastic membrane, and the tube is the new weeping tile. This is what captures the water and takes it away from the house!
Here is the right side of the house. I will show you the left side another day ;o)
Before
During
Now
The guys have been great! And, we are lucky to have got this done this year! They found a live wire on the other side of the house, where the mice had half eaten through and made a nice big nest beside it, to keep warm. They said, probably this winter, we would have had a fire! Scary stuff!

Big Hugs ;o)

Lots Of Stuff ;o)

Hey Everyone ;o) Hope you're well ;o)
Guess what???? The digging has started! Yepeee!!!!
From This...
To This....
What a mess!!! We felt sorry for the guys, because the earth was so wet, it was collapsing in on them. So they had to put wood braces all around, so the earth wouldn't cave in!

Some of you asked, if we are having new weeping tiles put in? Yes we are! Tomorrow, if it doesn't rain, they tar the wall, put this plastic membrane on, then new weeping tiles. This is the side, that we have the air conditioning on, so they are trying to get this side done as fast as possible for mom. The owner of the company was very nice. He brought over mom some industrial fans. It's  been helping a lot!
Bottoms Up! LOL!
You know what? They other side, where we have our walk way, has to be dug out by hand! It's because of all the hydro and gas lines! I wonder how long that will take them?

I have many new pieces of art to show you, but the sun hasn't been right.
Johnny's new movie is out!!! I can't wait to see it!!! Got to love Johnny, especailly with a crow ;o)

To all my American friends, have a very happy and safe 4th of July ;o) 
Big Hugs ;o)
