St. Patricks Day

Multi-colored green stain glass pieces
I want to wish everyone a Happy St. Patrick's Day.  My day started out with me fishing through green pieces of scrap glass to finish a garden stone that I am working on.  The stone is a broken piece of cement from my garden.  I placed a butterfly made with stained glass in the center of the stone.  The green glass was used as the background to represent grass. I keep most of my scrap glass to use for mosaics.  I have several plastic shoe boxes to hold different colors of glass but I keep all the same color in one box regardless of texture or shade.  It's alot of fun to see what one can create with broken pieces of glass and broken cement.  Plus I like the idea of recycling and saving money.  Tomorrow I will start grouting as I have about ten pieces that are ready for this next process.  I will post pictures of the finished stones when they are finished.  Hope you all had a Happy Saint Patrick's Day.
