"I See You" and a Giveaway!!

Spring Break started off with a Bang..literally..Look at the golf ball size hail that made a whole bunch of racket during an afternoon storm!!...Bang Bang cried the house...

But when the skies began to clear..we were able to get some things done..
Every Season we decorate the glass in the house..This day the glass called for some happy flowers..

and we gazed at the blooms that whispered sweet  happiness..

..and we made time for even more planting..

and Hannah got a new Haircut..

and I even had some playtime..with my new soldering iron..I quickly realized that after taking the Stephanie Lee course with my Sis..I had to jump into not only torch soldering but iron soldering too..

"I See You"
My favorite line from one of my favorite movies.."Joy luck Club"..I get goose bumps just thinking about see the clip I'm speaking of click here..

..Anyhoo....I'm still learning and I'm still having issues..Like How do I clean the solder and get it shiny????Anyone??

And Since spring is in the air I thought why not a giveaway..How about a soldered Pendant??Now please remember..I'm new at this..but I can make a custom "I see you" Pendant with some of your sweeties inside..Or what ever you wish!!Just leave me a comment..if you dare..hehhee..and I will announce the winner on
Monday the 18th.

As always,
thank you so much for stopping by

You can clean up your soldering by using a little "flux remover" and then a polishing cloth or silver polish for a shiny finish. Hope your day is wonderful.

Sweet soldering. Love Hannah's new haircut, she looks very grown up and chic! Your flowers are so brilliant, fuschias are my fave, but have to wait until summer to see them here. xox Corrine

I think we need to paint our glass, what a wonderful idea!

kj said...

i could leave multiple comments, cat! and they would all say this is a feel good hopeful post and thank you for it. i love that you and the kids decorate your window (s?) each season. that is a super idea and i'll bet hannah and joshua will carry that tradition on into their own adulthood.

we are all so psyched for spring.

I love that you paint glass with your family. I did that with my sons in every house we lived in all over the US and overseas. It was such fun. Sea Witch.

Hello Cat! I have been lost among the land of the Mundane and been absent from Blogland for far too long! I love this post and the idea of painting glass with your little ones. Isn't it fun to teach yourself a new technique? I have been playing with soldering, too. Such fun!
My best to you!

Cat, you constantly amaze me and inspire me! Your new soldered pendant is just I am so impressed yet again. I love how you incorporated the kids (and I agree, Hannah's new hair cut is really pretty on her).
You bring back memories with the mention of Joy Luck Club. I really related to that movie.
Thank you for this sweet give away.
