Blue Sky Birds


I found this little treasure while walking down a street that I had not discovered yet. Don't you love those kind of moments? I don't think I would have the patience to create something like this.

Beautiful details that make life pretty, and give it meaning. (I wouldn't have the patience either, Randy!!)

Carola said...

Fantastic with this blue and the rays. For me it is the same, I'm not patient with things like that.

Kathy said...

I don't have the talent to create something like this, Randy, much less the patience. Is it a wall sconce? It's lovely.

Beautiful!!

I like the object and the kind of surprise you feel finding this kind of things!

This is exquisite, Randy. Is it functional or simply on a building for its beauty?

As you know I love to find little treasures like this... congratulations on this one!

Bises,

I maxed the photo and love all the mosaics that make up this object...a shade for a light, I assume?

It is cute. I love finding undiscovered (to me) places & things. I suppose your classes were cancelled last night- just as well.. it was like bumper cars trying to leave last night... icy & slippery!

Luis Gomez said...

Very nice, lovely. Yeah, it might take a lot of time to do that.

Tiago Braga said...

Sharon said...

I love it! It is perfect for the wall behind it.

Lúcia said...

It's beautiful!
I'd love to be able to create things like this!

Magpie said...

It's beautiful and now that you've found it, I would love to see it at night. :)

Jacob said...

Very nice and very creative.

I'll be on hiatus for a few weeks. Got some projects that need attention...

So pretty. It looks like it might have a light inside and that would make it even prettier.

Eleanor said...

Great find Randy. The contrast between the colors in the sconce and the wall is fantastic!

JM said...

Truly lovely and I agree with Sharon. Perfect combination!

I love the tile work here. Really nice!

Alan said...

That's lovely. Someone very talented must have made it!

T. Becque said...

Oooh, an undiscovered street, that's my favorite! You're right, I'd have no patience for that either.

Lynette said...

A great deal of talent and skill went into this beauty. Thanks for the photo and thanks for stopping by my blog.

Nice, I love handcraft! Utrecht is a great place to explore if you ever will be in Holland.. :P one of these provincial towns with a lot of history which survived the centuries..

yas said...

Nice catch! It is beautiful creation. I like this blue.

Gunn said...

You have eyes for beautiful details!
