DBJ......yes that is a mosaiac top my sister Dianne showed me how to do it.......broke up some green tile (that her sister-in-law) gave her from redoing her bathroom, then we mixed the grout up and spreaded it on the old board, and started laying the pieces on.....luckily the uniform pieces all came together great......Thanks......

Rusty..........the orange sculpture my husband really liked....the orange painted one you see was $400.00 and we found one unpainted there for $300.00. Well needless to say, it won't be in my yard. My junking is not quite that expensive.....but they had a great variety of things that Lutrell would surely like........
