Idaho made it home!

What a wonderful weekend!  I had a friend fly up from California to  make the  road trip to  Bonners  Ferry  to deliver Idaho.   Our  first stop  was  to  fuel up!








Then we  stopped in to  pick up some tea.




Idaho was  anxious to get to his  new home  so our stops from Issaquah to  Bonners Ferry  were  short and s019weet!

Coral Was  pretty happy to  meet the  newest  Member of her family! She even  gave Idaho  a welcome  kiss!


First kiss

Well it is August  6th and I am still working on finishing touches! I am  getting so  close to  being done.I  am pretty  happy with how he is coming alone so I  had to give Idaho his first kiss!

163In case you  missed the  back story on Idaho: He is the 2nd  wire bird I have  made. The first one I  donated to an  art auction  to  benefit our  local art gallery.  I  started with a  roll of  recycled wire that I bought from a friend’s dad for $20.00 summer and heron 011I might  just have enough to  make one more bird!


a day away!

I am so excited to be getting to  close to  being  finished with Idaho.  My  plan is to  drive him  to Idaho on the 15 of of the month!  Last night I worked in the shop until 10 PM hoping to finish.    But I still have  to clean about  40  wires and  straighten out his leg as the vice has been a  bit  hard on him.  His feet also  need  some work. 20140804_195245 (1)20140804_19513620140804_195125
