Something completely different...

You have heard me talk about my Uncle Harvey - he isn't really our uncle, but the way Mom explains it sometimes you can know a special person your whole life so they really are pretty much family. Uncle Harvey and his wife were friends with my Mom's parents before my mom was even born. Here is a picture of me with Uncle Harvey at Christmas. He loves doggies and loves to pet you and gives great belly rubs.

Anyhow - I discussed it with Mom and we are doing a non-dog post tonight. During the last two visits to Gramma's my Mom has been taking lessons from Uncle Harvey on how to make stained glass. She is learning to cut, shaped and solder, she has done two projects and learning alot. This is the first piece she made.

Well learning to make stained glass has been fun and Uncle Harvey's stained glass pieces are so lovely we thought we would like to share with all our readers and friends. You can watch the slide show here or check out the photos using the Webshots link over on the left column.

Wishing all my doggie and human pals a great weekend - Dory

Hi, Dory.
Your Uncle makes wonderful pieces.
My grandma knows how to do that but her works are not as beautiful as your uncle's are.
I hope your mom makes many more.
Have a nice weekend

Wow, those are really beautiful. My mom's favorite is the "Two Bird Whirl". That lighthouse is really something too. It's so cool that you're learning how to make stained glass! You'll have to make one someday featuring Dory.

Those are great! My Mom loves stained glass, but we don't have very good windows in our house so she isn't able to have many hanging up.

Hey Dory,
Your uncle Harvey is very talented. Mama said the wood duck & lighthouse are gorgeous! Your Mama will have fun learning to make those things. Our Mama loves stained glass too. Does uncle Harvey sell things?? He should.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
