Pollyanna Update

I know a few of you asked for me to keep you posted as the "Glad Game chandelier" progressed. I've since found some new, interesting pieces. It's still in the making. Remember, it has to skim the flame of beeswax candlelight.


So thar she blows grows! Sorry...but I am having a whale of a time creating.




In a few days, I'll be sharing our latest Hobbit Day adventure, an annual event in the Acorn household. You will finally meet the gifted Miss Rachel, who brought a most charming creation to our Middle Earth feast.

Very nice! Those sunflowers are beautiful too and of course I am loving your nautical puns.

Jodi said...

Joy, Dad surprised me with the bouquet on Friday. They are beautiful!

Southern Gal said...

It sure is growing! Oh, how my son would love to live near you with all the Hobbit fun.

Nancy said...

My! How it's grown!

Jodi said...

Southern Gal, he'd be welcome to join us.

Jodi said...

Nancy, yes, I've needed some extra sparkle lately.

I'm so glad you've extra sparkle in your life and how kind to share it with all your readers......This is such an inspired idea! May all be well with you, dear Jodi.

Stephanie Ann said...

I love this! It's so pretty.

Sara said...

Lookin' good! I love glass in the light and you chandelier is just perfect with the light coming in from the door and window. I am sure it sparkles very prettily in the candlelight too.

It must be magical to sit under it in the evening by candlelight as well as seeing it catch sun rays in the day. Easy to play the Glad Game with that in the room!

So pretty!

The book On the Shoulders of Hobbits which I bought was in the mail waiting for me when I arrived home from Chautauqua. Haven't begun to read it yet, but am looking forward to it........

Jodi said...

Kristi, I Googled. :) That looks very interesting!

Kristi in the Western Reserve said...

And I forgot to say how interested I am in your easel which we can see in the first picture...I had a drafting table which sort of fell apart, and now have a little table top easel which I haven't used yet......What kind do you have?

Jodi said...

Kristi, It's a French, collapsable easel, used mainly for plein air painting. You can pack everything you need in it. Very convenient. I think the brand is called Paris because that's what's stamped on it.

Connie Smiley said...

It looks like great fun, Jodi!

Kristi in the Western Reserve said...

Thanks for the easel information......The more I look at your lovely Pollyanna creation the more I find myself drawn to the colorful pieces...I love glass too! But I've never thought of using it in such a unique way.

Kristi in the Western Reserve said...

I forgot to say I found examples of your type of easel at Dick Blick as Julian French Plein Air easels.

Julie said...

I like how it's coming along! BTW, is that a golden bee, I see? Very nice!

Jody Lee Collins said...

Jodi, that is one beautiful chandelier....and anyone who even remembers the Glad Game and Pollyanna, well, that just makes me smile.

Cheryl said...

It looks wonderful. I bet people don't fail to comment on it when they walk in the room.
