Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Well.....I finally had a good idea!!! Kim from http://flowerkim.blogspot.com/ had sent me this gourd over the summer, and I have had it tucked away for that 'special' project! Then it came to me.....It's the perfect size and shape for one of those adobe fireplaces (it's actually called an out-door chimney....according to Dad) I have it propped up on a mushroom chair I made from a beer cap and the cap off a cigar tube......................however, I won't be using that.....


Not to sure if I want a metal base like these that you can find here:

Or do I want it to have feet like this? (forgot where I got this from) ......I'm thinking if I want it to look natural, I'm going to need either acorn caps or twigs as a base.......

....I'll have to think on this one.....

Thought I'd throw in a picture of Fred....He's still looking for a good home.....and it's almost impossible to photograph him........Him doesn't sit still....lol.....

But, my camera is smarter than him, and happened to catch this one as he was leaning back:) He's soooo cute!! Still haven't called about Ginger, don't know what else to say other than I don't want to hear bad news right now, ya know......



And before I go....I just wanted to tell Everyone Happy Thanksgiving!!! Here's a pic of Otis when he was still a little guy, trying to steal a wing off our Thanksgiving Bird!! Yes! He's always been naughty!!


So here's to hoping you have a safe, wonderful weekend! Don't eat too much! And hide your pumpkin pie from people like me:)

Happy Thanksgiving to you too!
Love your kitty photos! Especially the one with Otis and the turkey!
I've been wanting an "outdoor fireplace" like these for my dollhouse patio deck. I found an insense burner that looked like it might work but the ad didn't post the size so I didn't get it. Will you be making this yourself?? Do tell how you do it! :)
Hugs,
Kathi

Katie, I really like the red of the house. The outdoor chimney is just like the ones we use for religious purposes at Chinese temples. It's used to burn paper offerings. I wonder what you guys use it for? Perhaps to brew tea? Or cook stew? Or pizza?
