    Too cute! And a good job you did, as well. I hate painting as well, but what did you use that came out so shiny? And did you spray it on to get it so even?

      I did 3 of the small ones and hid them in neighbors yards, took them about 3 weeks to find them.

          I have made a lot of whirligigs in the past and found that Lowe's sells a water base gloss enamel Valspar paint that works well.. (I used it for the yellow) and Patio Paint from Michael's for the white, and Pumpkin Orange from Apple barrel for the feet. Then a coat of Ultra Clear Valspar for the finish. (I did drill holes for the dowels , but as my garden is watered every day decided to just let the birds set on the patio).. Looking for more like this.

                My wife and I got the Moderna vaccine with our second shot last week. We had no reaction after the first shot but both of us had some body and fatigue for two days after the 2nd dose.

                Here in Mid-Michigan, my wife & I (both 65) got our first shot - the Pfizer one - last Sunday; with our second one scheduled for March 21st. Both of us were a little fatigued that evening... went to be early. Next day, just had a sore arm where we received the shot. Hope it's that way with the second...

                My first creation in intarsia , with a gift from my sister of that little puffin in stained glass. After couple of tests , I created this frame , as in my blue heron, and put the puffin leaving the water and waves, between rocks and with a look to his smiling rock mounster, on a beautiful sunset....
