Dear Diane,

I don't know you but I have something of yours or something that use to belong to you... I purchased it some time ago at the local resale store in town. Maybe you dropped the hobby and decided to take up something else?







Do your remember? Your Brunswick Black Diamond Bowling Ball? Well it's changed....




With a couple of tubes of this...





And lots of fresh chopped tomatoes...



I'M KIDDING!!!!!!


Look closer and you will see that this is red stained glass....yep! your bowling ball involves stained glass.






















And a bunch of these blue strips of painters tape (yeah, you remember I used these to hold down the lizard legs in a previous blog!). Note: bullet holes in the cabinet they are stuck to? This cabinet was an old mail sorting cabinet that was dumped at the farm and evidently someone used it for target practice. I painted it and use it now to hold a lot different things.
















Anyway Diane, back to your bowling ball... This picture looks like I've glued cheese slices to your ball. But, fear not again it's stained glass and your old bowling ball is progressing....












It is still not complete but all it lacks is it's grout. My dilemma is what color of grout to use on your bowling ball, Diane.


So viewers, I solicit your help...should it be black, white, terra cotta, gray? Whattaya think???





And finally, Diane...Thank you sincerely for your donation to the Local Resale Store. They earned a whole two dollars and ninety nine cents (plus tax) for your contribution and I have my second gazing ball. :)



ANYONE KNOW WHY THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH SPACING??? I'm about ready to pull my hair out trying to get this blog to look right....

I think terra cotta would be pretty and yard-looking.

I think white would look best. It would make the colors really stand out.

As for your spacing problem- are they there when you are creating the post? You can hit "preview" before posting to make sure it looks right. If there are no extra spaces and they still show up in the post you can choose "edit html" and delete the extra
or
tags in the area where the extra spaces are. Hope that makes sense..

I think anything dark would look good, that would make sure the other colors show up good. I can't believe how I see a ugly bowling ball...you see a gazing ball. HOLY COW!
Love you!
