    Well I think I have finished up enough ornaments to get thru the holidays. I made 16 mini birdhouses, 14 ornaments, and 6 bells. The bells are so much fun and easy to make. I should make some more. I have been asked to display some at the Carnagie Arts Center as a hometown artist. Me a R'tist???? I also will display some at two other stores. If they all sell I guess as the Arts Center lady said we can take orders. Thanks for looking.

    So I guess that new lathe is working out eh?

    Nicely done, Bernie. I can see some money being made with those.

    Bernie, your ornaments are just gorgeous, and so many.
    No wonder that your local gallery wanted them.
    Great work.
