Blue flowered and patterned teacups this time (along with color coordinated, scavenged stained glass and store-bought glass tiles).
Just needs three coats of sealer, but I wanted to post the photo today to brighten up the scene.
Doing these small projects does give some focus during the long winter.
I don't know how well these broken china steppers will hold up to foot traffic out in the yard; I'd like to learn more about other people's experience. For one thing, I'm guessing they will need to be coated with a sealer every year as insurance. The other china decorated stone that I put outdoors seem to be holding up for now but it hasn't been walked on. Maybe I'll put them in a spot where traffic is light and thoughtful, like in my herb garden.
I thought about taking them to place around the demo herb garden at the Extension for a point of interest during the garden tour. That could still happen, but I just found out the "Gardens in Thyme" weekend at Crossroads Village, where I promised to teach some classes about making homegrown herbal seasonings, was scheduled for the same weekend as the Master Gardener garden tour, where I usually hang out at the demo garden to answer questions, so I'm torn in two directions.
Why do they do that?
