We saw a gorgeous sunset as we had left the city of Tampa, on our journey out to the area where DD lives. Camera was packed so tried to see what I could capture with the smart phone (Learning to use it, but oh so slowly...we've been going to classes that Verizon sponsors for their customers. It is helping. Just a bit).
The kids had new front doors installed since we were here last. Since this is a beach resort area, lots of the houses have glass doors that are etched with seascapes. On one of our visits, we had visited the company that makes these doors. They are hand done, and some are done with an etching compound, and some are done by using a Dremel-like tool that actually etches the design into the glass (very expensive because of the labor involved). When the design was created (on whatever medium the designer used), it is placed on the glass, then the etching compound is used to transfer the drawing into the glass (less expensive, but still not cheap.) It took a few months for these to get made, and then installed by the company. The doors also have lights that change the colors of the doors at night - the dogs love it. Barked a lot at it, at first, but guess they are used to it by now.
Here's a picture of the green and purple changes. There's also a red & blue, but it's difficult to photograph at night, with the colors.
It's actually very impressive and looks great as one comes into the drive. Pretty from inside as well.
I'm doing my best to return visits, but won't be sharing any cards while we are away from home. I brought the Zig watercolor markers along to practice with them, and some clear stamps & EP. I find I do a bit better with staying inside the lines if I've embossed the image.
Hope you've had a good week so far. Here we are so close to the weekend, seems like time just goes faster & faster. Thanks for stopping in, and big hugs back your way.
