Pittsburgh seen from overlook at Washington’s Landing
Since we didn’t have the kids, we went for a bike ride today; we started at Washington’s Landing and went down to the two stadiums (stadia?). It was about a 4 mile bike ride altogether – flat, partly shady, very pleasant. For the first time in a long time, not bad! We wanted to check it out before we took the kids – it’s a great ride I’m sure they’ll enjoy!
These are some photos I took – YES, I remembered my camera today! I’ll post the rest tomorrow – don’t want to overload your computers or anything! I hope you had a good weekend too!

This is my first glass headpin! I made it with stainless steel picture hanger wire, because it holds up in the kiln, and coral glass. Pretty cool, huh? Pam Ferrari, of Wait Just One More Bead, showed hers off the other day! She made a bunch! Aren’t they pretty?
These very strange mushrooms are growing in my yard right now! They are growing in a spot where there used to be a pin oak – I am assuming these are some sort of wood mushrooms growing out of the roots. Weird!

I wanted to ask all you lampworkers out there who read this blog – what do you do with all your shorts? For those who don’t know, shorts are pieces of glass, usually ranging between 1 and 3 inches long, that you have leftover from a rod of glass. The length is determined by how hot you are willing to let your fingers get – kind of like torch chicken!
My kiln is a fuser, but I don’t have any molds or anything that I can think of to use the shorts for. Does anyone have any ideas or resources? I’d be glad to sell them on ebay, but I don’t know that there’s a big market for them. I guess my other idea is to donate them to the glass center?
Lynda, from SCDiva on etsy, makes polymer clay goodies! She recently had a gingko leaf pendant on her blog and I wanted one!!!! She made this one for me! I love it. I can honestly say that as of right now, I don’t have an ideas for it, although as I type this, some are starting to flow! But I can’t wait to get it and make something for myself for the fall! Thanks Lynda!
Wilsome, the fire eater. This guy was great and SO funny!
Sirs William and Ian
Random Pirate show…pirates in the renaissance?
Unicorn…just have to say that, right?
We went to the Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival yesterday. As usual, I forgot my camera. Of course, I was also planning, organizing and making sure everyone was getting ready, but luckily the engineer remembered his. So here are some images from the fun!
