It is beautiful BB , I,m afraid I haven't done it justice with my photo , I had a flash back from the glass on each one I took .
I wish you could all see it properly !

Thanks Carole I am thrilled , it's been very exciting to watch it come to life ......

Ahh Morgana I didn't think of that , will being next to a window do ? I will have a word and tell it which way to go out . i,m serious !

The belief is if you face the head of an elephant towards a door it stops badness entering your home charging at badness and brings prosperity not a window though

brilliant

I know Morgana , I use to have a lovely ceramic Elephant on my fireplace facing the door ... it got broken in a move .
That has confused me , I will sleep on it !

3 Sep, 2009

 

I have just read about a woman who faced it toward s the window and she had nothing but arguments when she moved it after enquiring on a site all was peaceful in her house, the best to check with is an Indian they will tell you , you will find its the door.

I have been in to check and it does actually face the door Morgana so i,m feeling happier with that ........

Well done that is good then

3 Sep, 2009

 

well i dont think with that big old boy in your house anyones going to want to give you bad luck.dont sound so lucky for you amy as yours got broken facing the door.isnt it up to the human weather they argue or not and there situation.maybe they were arguing because they kept catching themselves on the tusks on the way out the door.i dont know which end of a 6 ton bull elephant id rather meat in ya house or infact anywear lol

I think you are right about that leigh , it,s people that make their own lives up to a point , sometimes they come under the influence of other people that perhaps they would have done better to avoid , but you can't make decision for them ....

The Elly is looking great this morning and it is facing the door isn't it , both the dining room doors and the front room to the side .. ( just in case ) LOL...

Are you well , you didn't pull your back did you ? sometimes you can't tell 'till the next day ... did you have help getting the glass out of your van ? x

As I wrote, above, it is really lovely, and also the happy "people" photos....

I,m pleased to hear you didn't suffer too badly Leigh I was worried about that .. that was a very heavy sheet of glass !
I know what you mean about getting on and doing things when you can .. if you didn't you'd never get out of bed ...
Leave the glass where it is until you have more people there to help you ... Have you dreamt up any great ideas for it yet ? x

5 Sep, 2009

 

ofcourse im going to put it at the back of my pond and make a cement frame round it that will fix to my pond.then as im a pisces it seams only right to glass paint to different colour koi head to tail on it.then im going to back light it.the sun will also throw some lovley colours through it to all thanx to you to.thanx again ill invite you over i think maybe next summer for a spot of food maybe and to see what ive done with the glass,pond and garden.anyway thanx for everything amy .you will be kept up to date anyway bye for now take care love xx

You're welcome Leigh , you have so many projects on the go I don't know how you get round to doing them all ..
Take your time about it .. you will need to wait for the better weather to be outside , possibly the spring ...
You take care .
Elly is very happy in his new home and looks magnificent ... xx
