tony blogs again

hi ...i'm tony...lisa's husband...a few years back i did all the blogging...kind-of got tired of it so lisa took over...but as of late shes been wanting me to blog again...soooooo here goes...
a few things you may need to know about me...i do that a lot... ... ... ... ... ... i stop and think and when i do this just kind-of happens...see there it went again...something else is... i don't use spell-check...sorry...just don't do it...plus i've always hoped that one day i'd come up with a totaly new...very kind-of cool...hip word from a spelling mistake...soooooo who knows...oh by the way i also do this a lot...soooooo...it's a way of streaching time...i guess...but it's mostly when my mind gets side tracked and i'm trying to remember just what it was i was doing...soooooo...yes my mind wonders a lot...anyway lisa is soooooo great at letting everyone know whats going on with us and our work...the new things we are doing...and whats going on in the lives of lucy and zen...but me on the other hand...well i'm much more random...soooooo...
ok so i was driving back from the market a few weeks ago and all at once i real-a-lized...i'd driven past our street... about 2 miles ago...like i said my mind wonders...and i'd taken a turn on a street i'd never been on...soooooo... as i was about to turn around when i saw these old windows on the side of a street near a house that was being re-modeled...soooooo...the sun was shining off the glass and it caught my eye..kind-of like a crow seeing something shine-ee i had to have one...i pulled over and this is what happened...


a window in the back of my truck...i don't think i stoled it...it was in the trash pile...but it's hard for me to believe someone would consider this trash...it's just wrong...see i think wrong should be spelled rong...anyway if you put such treasures on the side of the street onto which i make a rong turn...it'll be in the back of my truck...ok so i've got all these wonder-filled ideas about what i'm going to do wuth the window parts...but they are far to wonder-full to happen in this short amount of time...soooooo...they must ride around many more miles before i do something with them....wow i'm like just going on and on here...lets get to the chase...ok so i was looking at the boards on the side of the windows...they were very old...had lots of holes from rusty nail's...soooooo cool...i took the boards off...cut one of them into small peices and sanded them...yes they look better without sanding but i hate spilinters so i sanded them...

cut out and arch-way in one and started painting...layer after layer of paint...till i got something i liked... next i needed to come up with something for the arch...and the first thing that came to me was a tortured heart...kind-of like the ones i used to make in glass...wow it's been over a year now since i've done any glass work...soooooo...i took some air dry molding clay...some rusty nails...whats life without some rusty nails...and lots and lots of paint...and this is what i came up with...


i'm going to mount the arch on another block of wood.......


then attach the heart in the arch...add many more rusty nails...and who knows what else and we'll see what happens...i love doing stuff like this but seem to find so little to do anything but casting and finishing metal...anyway i took a little time for myself and had some fun...when i finish this i'll let you know as well as post a few photos...see what can happen when you make a rong turn...
