    @ Sharon B: What a project! I admire you for taking it on, and it came out so nicely! Now, sit back, relax, and enjoy it! I would love to know more about your bird bath...you say you did it yourself. It's really pretty and very creative. Please let me know if you can clue me in about how you made it. Thank You!
