A Girlfriend for RePete -- Another Playful Pooch

RePete sold for $930.00 at auction (benefits going to Community Montessori School -- YEAH)!  The bidding was so fun to watch...the runner up pleaded me to create another one for her...so, here she is. 

More tile from a torn down house, odds, ends from my Mom's stained glass work and a rock tongue.

A bone, a moon (will go on a tall, thin copper pipe), and a rock that is covered in tiles with Poppy flowers -- very Georgetown, Texas -- where this will be an outdoor installation.

No name for this blue eyed girl as she's going to a client...don't want to spoil the fun...BUT, if I had to, I'd call her Cleo.
