Spring starts March 20th. But here on the Anvil of the Sun Summer starts on April 1st, so we have 11 days for outdoor entertainment. I have been doing some upgrade work to the Headhunter Harbor. I had made a Headhunter mosaic end table several months ago so I made a matching one.


I had some outdoor wireless speakers that worked well but they were black shiny plastic and didn't blend in well. I built some covers for them with wood frames and fabric sides to allow the sound to come out, they fit just right under the tables. Because the tiles around the headhunters are glass, I figured some uplighting under the tables would be cool so I made a place on top of the speaker covers for some LED "hockey puck" lights.


The propane fire pit on my Guardians of the Flame table went bad and I couldn't find a suitable replacement. The hole in the table was specifically made for this fire pit so I salvaged the metal bowl and made a 3 wick Tiki torch out of copper pipe fittings, a piece of old road sign, and a Mason jar. Its makes a nice small bonfire flame.


Picked up a cheesy plastic flamingo at Lowes and repainted it to look a bit more realistic. I also redid my "fish condo". The support for the upside down vase was a piece of PVC pipe but it was very visible. I replaced it with a clear acrylic support that looks much better


A bit of jungle trimming and some fresh flowers planted, I'm ready for my brief window of opportunity

MDM cannot be stopped! Love the added table, fire upgrade, and... well... everything. Fish condo looks great- can they get some air/ filtration in there? Don't want them to boil over!

Things are warming up here slowly, I can only imagine out there...

Mike, you always amaze me. Great idea with the under-table lighting! Love what you did to the firepit table. I think I prefer that to a propane flame.

Holy Cow!
i just came across this thread yesterday.
needless to say i haven't accomplished much in the last 2 days.
131 pages of pure genius.
got to see ya learn how to work mud, have grandkids, sew, and build trailers and pirate ships, just to name a few things.
cant wait to see whats next and hope to someday have one of your mugs in my collection.
in fact i might even say you've inspired me, along with wendy, to take a ceramics class at the local college.
thanks for that.

Top 'o the St Paddy's morn to ya!
Since today is opening (and closing) day of the one day Leprechaun Trapping season, I thought I would give it a go. If you Google "Leprechaun Trap" you will find many similar traps but I don't think that design is effective because none of them show any Leprechauns that they trapped. So I decided to take a more direct approach. Knowing that 2 of a Leprechaun's weaknesses are 4 leaf clovers and Bailey's Irish Cream, I set a trap with a four leaf clover as bait and drenched it in Baileys. Then I set it in the garden last night with a trail of Bailey's leading up to it.


And this morning look what I found:


Unfortunately, a dead Leprechaun won't tell you where his pot of gold is May have to try something else next year.


Just a quick polymer clay sculpture, I didn't spend much time on it so it's not all that well done.

David, Liz, Jon, Clara, Lori & Lori - Thank you very much.
Wendy - Glad Dan enjoyed his card.
Dale - The oil flame is more raw and primitive than the propane, and larger too. But the oil flame is too smoky and sooty to use for S'mores & such.
Muskrat - I have seen your work and you are no slouch in the genius department. Hope the ceramic class works out for you, the one I took has opened the door to years of ceramic enjoyment.
