I bought this in Cambria. Great idea, easier than Mosaic, You just trowel on the grout like frosting and set in the shells and sea glass.
Shells and sea glass birdhouse
You can buy one in Cambria for $38.Figured I wasn't gonna get hubby to build it. He has enough honey dos.
Some times it's just Easier to buy it! Now you have a special remembrance, and something you can copy if and when you want to. Does the transmitter (my husband was a electrician, I should remember what it's called--haha...but whatever it is - I have a collection of 5) on the top - does it have a light under it, if not can you put a solar light under it? I'll be in the Cambria area in October - going to visit Hearst Castle and then onto the aquarium in Monterey. Last year at this time was in Sedona - beautiful! And I love the 'art work' on the underpasses in Arizona, cactus and lizards, etc in stone.
Hi J2! -we still need to try and get together and visit the TS's.
It doesn't have a light in it, but if you could remove the top you could probably put a small solar light in. We see lots of those electrical thingies around here. The shop I got it at was an antique shop that was closed. I had to call them to open up! She lives upstairs. Another one was in the window the next day. It is in the west Village right next to the fudge shop(might be grandma's antiques(nothing fancy).
If you need a great place to stay for a reasonable price.

Curves: Ok I followed the link and read your cottage review & suggestions for eating...thanks.
That is such a good idea! I have waaaay too many shells in my storage in Missouri and now I know how to deal with them. Do you just trowel it on, press the shells into it and then texture it with a sponge - or do you even need to texture it...?
Just trowel it on and set the shells and some sea glass if you have it. No Need to sponge.
