Shading

I've got a lot of ideas, (thank you all!) so the only thing ahead is to choose and make them. I've seen Flora's real balcony with bamboo shades, and I liked the idea. It was a very very fiddling work, but it was worth the time. Today I played with the lights and shadows on the balcony. I don't think to make the other half of the shades, but I don't miss it at all.





I've thought about the demijohn a lot how to make it. I carved the shape from wood, then whipped round with thread. The neck is the end of a pen refill coated with glass paint.


The number of my followers is amazing. I haven't thought of it even in my dream! Thank you for visiting my blog! I send these Kniphophias from my garden for you!

I am really pleased to have been of some use to you: I like your style clean and tight and your work is always a pleasant surprise!
The shade is much better than mine, so much so that today the wind has torn off and tomorrow, my husband armed with proper tools, try to fix it :-)
To you, I wish good Sunday and good job

The balcony looks amazing. What did you use to make the blind? And the demijohn is another example of your resourcefulness :)
