Dancing Dog

Savannah thinks that she needs to provide a floor show in order to be fed.

Another Federal Mirror

I had posted about this earlier when working on the reverse glass :
Thanks to the old mirror glass from my brother's stash, this has finally been reassembled, meaning another project checked on the list.

Funny that in both images there happened to be a dog in the reflection.

End of the season

It's that time of the year when we close up the place in Wiscasset. Sometimes we get tempted to stay longer, then the weather changes and reminds us that it is time to leave. This past weekend was cold and rainy, but then bright sun came out for about 30 minutes. But I will not be fooled - I know what is on the way, and in fact, Monday morning in Massachusetts we had our first dusting of snow.
So, drain the pipes and come back in the spring!

Golden Pineapples

These wooden pineapples could adorn the entry for a hedge fund manager or possibly a Russian oligarch. Well, actually, the suburban home of a former colleague, where her husband has essentially rebuilt the entire house, and is now working on the finishing details.

These were new wood, but still required quite a bit of priming and sanding. Once gilded with 23K gold, they should be good for many years.
