Something Different

This Biggs Jasper cab has been setting on my bench for 2 plus years just waiting patiently for me to create a special setting.  Well, I think I managed to do just that.
Have a great week!  
Off to play in the studio!!!
Thank You!!

Hornitos Poppy Jasper, Wind, Rain and a New Roof

This is a yummy piece of Hornitos Poppy Jasper I purchased in January of this year.
It has a wonderful color combination of burgundy matrix , rosy red and pale pink "poppies"
We have been waiting for a break in our weather to put on a new roof and new gutters and last week was beautiful here in Oregon!  We even hit 70degrees a couple of days.  As usual it was our spring teaser and we were back to rain and wind with much cooler temperature over the weekend and this week.  The joke here in Oregon is it rains until July 5th and then out comes the sun.
This was the largest branch down in our yard. Some of our neighbors had larger branches and about 2 blocks away a large tree took out some power lines.
But our new roof and gutters were just fine!!!!!!!
You just have to love a new roof!!!!
